German car manufacturer Volkswagen has been present in the Indian market for over a decade and during this time, they have experimented the market with several new and variety products. Some of the products that they brought in was way ahead of its time and because of that reason, it did not do well. One such product that Volkswagen had launched in the Indian market was Phaeton luxury sedan. This was actually launched in India as their flagship model and was priced around Rs 80 lakh. It was brought to India as completely built unit (CBU) and that was one of the reason why it had a hefty price tag. Due to several reasons other than price, Phaeton did not do good in our market and Volkswagen had to discontinue it.
