Volkswagen Passenger Cars India on Monday announced that it registered a strong annual sales performance with a growth of 58 per cent in 2022, compared to 2021. The automaker has attributed the uptick in sales to the models like Taigun, Virtus and Tiguan. These three Volkswagen cars are claimed to have received a pretty good response from buyers in 2022.

The automaker claims to have expanded its sales network in cities like Jammu, Agra, Delhi-NCR, Nagpur, Kolkata and Rajahmundry, which propelled the company's growth last year.
