Volkswagen India Exports Its 2,50,000th Car To Mexico

Volkswagen India has exported its 2,50,000th India-made car to Mexico.

Volkswagen has been exporting locally-made left hand drive Polo and Vento cars, and the Vento has seen a rise in demand in many of the export markets.

 In fact the honour of being the 2,50,000th car went to the Vento and it has gone on to become the third highest selling car in the entire passenger car market in Mexico and currently makes up the bulk of car exports by Volkswagen to this geography at 2,10,000.

Volkswagen India exports to over 35 countries across four continents of North America, South America, Africa and Asia and has shipped more than 310,000 in total till date.

Volkswagen India started exports to Mexico with the Volkswagen Vento  in 2013, and this was just four years of establishing its production plant in India.

 However, Volkswagen has been facing an uphill battle, when it comes to sales, with both the Vento and the Polo and while both are to be updated, there's been no move on that front by the company yet.

The export volumes though have seen a rise and more than half of the cars produced in the Pune plant are exported to Mexico, which shows how much the demand for the car has gone down in India.

With manufacturers like Honda, Hyundai, bringing out new generations of their products, Volkswagen has not yet decided on bringing out a new generation of the Vento yet.
