He added that the achievement gains more significance "as we continue to export vehicles despite the current challenges in the industry on account of Covid-19 disruptions".

Over the next years, the company will produce cars based on the new MBQ A0 IN platform with a high degree of localisation and will continue to explore export markets for the India 2.0 products, he said.

The India 2.0 project, which entails an investment of 8,000 crore, is aimed at strengthening presence in the domestic market with India-specific car models through a dedicated platform.

The four new products developed for the Indian market for Skoda Auto and Volkswagen consisting of SUVs and Notchbacks will be evaluated for exports to similar markets requiring robust built and efficient cars, it said.

According to the company, the future range of products, starting from next year, is expected to have as much as up to 95 per cent local contents.
