Volkswagen luxury cars in India
The biggest automaker in Germany and the second biggest in the world today, Volkswagen has been a part of the automobile industry for over 75 years now. Originally founded by the Nazi trade union, the German Labour Front, in 1937, the company met a major turning point in its journey once the Nazi regime came to end in 1945 and the British Military Government commissioned it to manufacture 20, 000 Volkswagen cars - 20, 000 Volkswagen Beetles, to be exact. Right from those very early days, this car-manufacturer has been a leader in its field, first establishing its dominance over the domestic car-market of Germany and then moving ahead to take over the international market in 1950.
Today, there are a total of 9 brands, namely, Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Scania, Seat, Skoda, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Volkswagen Passenger Cars, whose operations are overseen by the Volkswagen AG from its headquarters based in Wolfsburg, Germany. Of these 9 marques, Volkswagen is the original and the highest selling brand ever to have represented the German automaker across international borders. In fact, so immensely popular has been the VW brand around the world that a special list compiled by the website '24/7 Wall St' has claimed 3 cars out of the top 10 bestsellers of all time to be Volkswagens - the Volkswagen Golf, the Volkswagen Beetle and the Volkswagen Passat.
In India, this auto-giant from Germany operates through a wholly owned subsidiary, Volkswagen Group Sales India Private Limited, which was established in the year 2001 with its headquarters located in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Constituting this Indian subsidiary are three division companies - Audi India, Skoda India Private Limited and Volkswagen India Private Limited, which are not only responsible for the manufacture and distribution of Audi, Skoda and Volkswagen cars in India but also for the sales of brands like Bentley, Bugatti and Lamborghini. While Skoda was the first brand of the VW Group to make its way to the Indian shores in 2001, Audi and Volkswagen did not show up until 2007.
