  15. 15. Volkswagen pursues its goal of becoming the number one automaker in theworld by 2018Famously known for its Beetle – one of the best selling cars of all time atover 21 million units.In a bid to move beyond the Beetle :Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, SEAT, Skoda and VW.Entered Indian market in 2001 with launch of Skoda.Audi and Volkswagen brands launched in 2007.Two group companies – Volkswagen India & VGSIPL. The VW Group also owns 49.9% of Porsche and set to take 100% ownershipin the near future.
  16. 16.  PriceTargeted mainly for the luxury segment in the Indian market.Plan to capture bigger market through the VW Polo and Vento.
  17. 17. ISSUESCaters mainly to luxury segment.Higher price range – except Skoda Fabia.Lack of brand awareness among Indian consumers.Lack of aggressive marketing in earlier phases.
  18. 18. In the 4 door mid-luxury segment - Market leader Honda City.Vento Introduced in 2010 Beaten the Honda City as the number 1 selling car in that segment The Vento’s success Honda lagging VW bringing the right product to the market, namely a diesel engine. With petrol prices only going up VW was right to tap into the Indian psyche of affordability.
  19. 19.  Volkswagen India has smartly priced this car. Manual petrol version 2 variants, either base or top which has a huge price gap of around one lakhs INR. Base model (Trendline) lacks many features and at this price there are many other options available in the market which offer more features and are more refined and powerful in comparison to it. Petrol version of Vento is capable to beat City in any department. Diesel Version It’s the diesel version which sets the stage on fire. At this price what you get is : highly refined powerful fuel efficient car German engineering at its best. This car is completely value for money and it looks smart enough to turn heads
  20. 20.  Volkswagen - Indian market in 2010. Polo, a premium hatchback Looks, comfort and performance. Built quality as well. It mainly competes with the Maruti Swift, Hyundai i10, Fiat Punto etc. Polo has been a winner for Volkswagen and is reportedly the most demanded Volkswagen model in the Indian market.
  21. 21.  There are 6 variants. 3 premium segments Trendline, Comfortline and Highline. 4.3-6.5 lakhs -petrol models 5.5-7.4 lakhs -diesel models. The German build and brand name has definitely given Polo an advantage in its segment together with the features it offers. 
  22. 22.  The base model of Polo starts under five lakh rupees Quite competitively placed but it offers fewer features than its rivals. Surely a head turner, its capable enough to grab attention in public. This is the only USP of this car. Relatively high price of its 1.6 version and diesel versions – it’s not a value for money car. It is not as powerful as other hatchbacks in its class. At this price what you get is a car from German makers which is strongly built and looks sophisticated. There is another issue; there is huge gap in prices of these three variants from each other. It gives advantage to other cars to fit into these gaps. Looking at its quality, fresh look and superior German engineering, this car should be able to get a good number of buyers, especially youth.
