Friday 21 November 2014, 11:32 AM by

Volkswagen India has initiated exporting the all-new Polo 1.6 Highline to the North American country of Mexico. This comes at a time exactly a year after it entered the Mexican market with its India manufactured Vento.

The most interesting aspect about the German company is that the export versions of Polo and Vento account for almost every second car being manufactured at Pune facility. The plant has already produced around 89000 cars for export till date according to the manufacturer. Mahesh Kodumudi, the President and Managing Director of the Volkswagen Pune Plant said in a statement, “With the successful entry in Mexico last year with our Vento, we set an example of world-class quality being manufactured in India. We build the same quality of cars in Pune as around the world with equally robust construction. The Polo built in India has achieved a 4-star Global NCAP rating which is a strength when it comes to exporting to global markets.’’

Volkswagen started exporting its cars from the Pune plant initially in 2011. South Africa was the country to become the export market for this manufacturer. However, the export process from the Pune facility has increased several manifolds after that and it currently sends the models to more than 32 countries spread in Asia, Africa and North America. Both left-hand drive models as well as right-hand drive cars are exported as of present. Volkswagen India, apart from these countries, also exports parts and components of its models to Malaysia, which are assembled back, for the domestic market.
