New Delhi: European car maker Volkswagen, which sells Passat and Touareg in India, Wednesday said it would introduce two new models this year and expects to sell 110,000 cars after its plant is operational next year.
“We will get our Jetta to the Indian market this summer, while luxury sedan Phaeton will also be introduced this year,” Volkswagen India President Joerg Mueller told reporters at the AutoExpo here.
The company’s 110,000-unit capacity manufacturing plant in Chakan near Pune is expected to be operational by 2009 and would put together a variant of Polo and Fabia that are scheduled for introduction in 2010.
Jetta, on the other hand, would be assembled at the Skoda unit at Aurangabad, while the Phaeton would be imported. It is also studying the market for introduction of SUV Tiguan.
Volkswagen, which has three dealers at present, is also planning to expand the network to 10 this year, Mueller said.
