The Indian armed german automaker, Volkswagen has shipped over 185,000 cars made in India for the global markets. In 2015, the company shipped 69,300 cars in the global market, making a raise of about 4% when compared to the vehicles exported in 2014. Initially, Volkswagen started exporting its cars to South Africa as the first single export market, from where the company has rapidly grown over 35 countries across Asia, Africa, North America and South America.

Elaborating on this, Dr. Andreas Lauermann, President & Managing Director, Volkswagen India Private Limited said, “Volkswagen set up its Indian operations especially for the domestic Indian Page 2 of 2 market and we still continue to focus market and we still continue to focus primarily on our local customers and their demands. However, with fluctuations in the domestic demand and the currency exchange, it became necessary for us to establish a second strong leg of our operations here in India. Since a Volkswagen made anywhere in the world follows the same quality and engineering standards, we were able to impress several export markets and create a demand there with our cars built in India.”

Further adding to this, he said, “The acceptance and rising demand from a variety of markets and consumers from Asia to America stands a testimony to the global standards and state-of-the-art manufacturing that we undertake here at the Pune Plant.”

According to the company reports over 55% of its cars produced in Pune facicilty were exported to these global markets. “The range of cars being exported includes left-hand drive as well as right-hand drive Polo and Vento cars. Mexico has been the single largest export market for Volkswagen India where over 80% of the export volume was shipped in 2015”, company said in a statement. In 2011, the export volumes only contributed approximately 6.4%of the total production.
