Volkswagen India has successfully delivered the 2,50,000th car to Mexico from its facility in India.  The company established its first production plant in India way back in 2009, and in 2013, the first Vento was exported to Mexico. Over time, the company also began exporting the Polo hatchback to Mexico from its facility in India. Owing to the high demand and growth for the Vento in the region, it has emerged as the third highest selling car in the entire passenger car market in Mexico.

Speaking about its milestone achievement, Dr. Andreas Lauermann, President and Managing Director, Volkswagen India Private Limited, “The growing popularity of India-made Volkswagen cars in markets like Mexico and others lays testament to our strong focus on quality products across all our manufacturing investments worldwide – in line with our think global, build local philosophy! India on its part, has offered Volkswagen a rich mix of strong local market opportunity combined with manufacturing prowess that helps us serve the world with cars that are German in their soul and local in their flavour. We continue to invest in this opportunity and look forward to more successes from India in the years to come.”        

Volkswagen India cars are exported to over 35 countries across four continents - North America, South America, Africa and Asia. The company claims that it has shipped over 3,10,000 cars across the geographies till date. A fresh update from the company also reveals that the Pune facility has so far managed to attract an investment of over %u20B9 5720 crore along with achieving localisation of about 82 per cent.
