Volkswagen, Europe’s largest carmaker, has announced a 57% increase in sales in May 2015 at 4,167 units as compared to 2,657 units sold in May 2014.
This increase in sales comes on the back of the recent successful launch of the new Jetta, which offers class-leading building quality, safety and performance. The Volkswagen Polo, the only hatchback in its segment that comes with a 4-star NCAP safety rating for adult occupants, also continues to contribute to Volkswagen’s increase in sales. Especially noteworthy is the Polo GT TSI, with its powerful turbocharged petrol engine and 7-speed DSG transmission, which leads Volkswagen’s strong sales performance in the premium hatchback segment.
Mr. Michael Mayer, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd. said “We are happy to note that our sales have gone up by 57% in May 2015, on a year-on-year basis. This is a clear indication of the fact that, increasingly, car buyers in India now recognize and appreciate the key attributes of Volkswagen cars, which are best-in-class build quality and safety, efficiency and driving dynamics. We remain confident of continuing to improve our sales figures further, over the coming months.”
