Volkswagen is preparing to launch the Ameo compact sedan for the Indian market. Since this car is developed for India, the company is foreseeing a good demand and has added a third shift at its Pune plant to aid the upcoming car's production.

Volkswagen India has hired 800 new employees for the new shift and plan to add more at a later stage. The people are being hired at different levels with diverse skill sets. The workforce will be increased by employing more people as the production increases at the facility.

Andreas Lauermann, President and Managing Director, Volkswagen India Private Limited, said, “In 2016, we are expecting growth in our domestic as well as export volumes. With the new Ameo, a car that has been specially developed for India, we are expecting a higher demand from the domestic Indian market while we look at supplying more cars to our export markets too. In all, we expect to increase our production by around 15 per cent this year as compared to the last one.”

Started with an investment of 800 million Euros in March 2009, the Volkswagen's Chakan Plant produces the Polo, Vento and Skoda's Rapid at present. Additionally, the 1.5-litre TDI engine is also assembled at this facility. The facility caters to both the domestic as well as export demand.
