Volkswagen ramps up exports from Pune plant

Automobiles manufacturer Volkswagen has stepped up exports from its Pune (India) plant and also started exporting its compact car Polo to Mexico. The German company already exports its mid-segment car Vento to Mexico, which is the single largest export market for Volkswagen India. “The export versions of Vento and new Polo together account for nearly every second car produced at the Pune plant,“ the company said, adding that the expansion of exports reflects the strong demand of made-in-India high quality cars.
Volkswagen India started exporting cars from its Pune Plant in 2011 with the first export market being South Africa. Since then, the export operations of Volkswagen India have expanded to over 32 countries across three continents of Asia, Africa and North America. The range of cars being exported includes left-hand drive as well as right-hand drive cars. Additionally, Volkswagen India also exports parts and components of its cars to Malaysia which are assembled there for the Malaysian domestic market. The company's Pune plant has produced over 89,000 cars so far.
