3,00,000th VW rolls out from Pune
Volkswagen has rolled out its 3,00,000th car from its plant in Pune. The landmark car was a left-hand drive version of the Vento that will be exported.
Speaking on the occasion, Mahesh Kodumudi, president and managing director, Volkswagen India, said, "The Vento in itself is a milestone for Volkswagen in India. Though it was a car designed and built for India, it got wide acceptance in the international market as well and slowly grew to reach even the left-hand drive markets. Today, this car has achieved another milestone by being the 3,00,000th car to roll out of the Pune plant."
The VW plant in Pune has been operational since 2009 and has manufactured the Polo and Vento and the Skoda Fabia and Rapid.
