Volkswagen India Opens New Workshop in Mumbai

Snapshot: It is being located at Cotton Green and will supplement the existing workshop at Sewri, Mumbai

Volkswagen India has opened a new workshop in Mumbai, Maharashtra in a bid to reach out to more & more customers. Called ‘Volkswagen Downtown Mumbai’, this workshop facility is owned by Shaman Group. It is being located at Cotton Green and will supplement the existing workshop at Sewri, Mumbai under the same name - Volkswagen Downtown Mumbai (Shaman). Michael Mayer, Director Volkswagen Passenger Cars India was present at the inauguration of the new facility.

The German automajor saw a steep rise of 57 percent in the sales of May 2015 over the same month last year. Volkswagen India is all set to launch the facelifted Vento sedan on June 23, 2015 in the country. The company also announced its plan about localizing content on its 1.5L TDI motor to enjoy cost benefits. Also, last month the company inaugurated its sixth dealership in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Hence, it can be said that Volkswagen is leaving no stone unturned to make its presence felt in the country and cater to maximum audience, at least in Tier I and II cities.

It was not longer before it was announced in a press conference that Volkswagen would launch 5 fresh products in India by 2017. It includes the Vento facelift, New Passat, Bettle coupe, Tiguan SUV and an all-new compact sedan. A few days back, it was reported that Volkswagen's New Compact Sedan (NCS) - that's what it calls the sub 4-meter sedan made for India - would debut at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo. Hence, all we can say is that finally Volkswagen is on the right track and these efforts might enhance its market share in India.
