Volkswagen exports ‘Made-in-India’ Vento to Argentina

Volkswagen exports ‘Made-in-India’ Vento to Argentina

Volkswagen India has revealed that its ‘made-in-India’ Vento was launched in Argentina on November 10, 2015 after it was showcased at the Buenos Aires Motorshow earlier this year. 

The saloon that rolls out of Volkswagens Pune plant will however be christened the ‘Polo’ for the Argentinian market. That said, the event scores highly for the company as it reflects their commitment to locally build top-notch products for international markets.

Volkswagen has a strong presence in Argentina with a market share close to 22 per cent. They expect the Vento to garner a lot of attention due to the strong design elements in its saloon shape that will cater to this popular segment. The saloon will be sold with the same 103.5bhp 1.6 litre petrol engine with the option of a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. 

Dr. Andreas Lauermann, President and Managing Director, Volkswagen India Private Limited, commented “Volkswagen India builds highest quality cars at its Pune Plant. We have been exporting to numerous markets across the continents of Asia, Africa and North America. By entering Argentina, we not only now continue our endeavour to deliver top notch products around the world, but also establish ourselves in a new region and a market which has a strong Volkswagen presence.”

Sources at Volkswagen India mentioned that close to 1,600 cars have left Indian shores for Argentina since June 2015, and this is a positive sign for the company’s future export operations.
