Volkswagen has crossed a major landmark in India as they rolled out the 2,00,000th unit of the Vento sedan from their Chakan plant. The Vento is the first left hand drive car to have been made at the Chakan plant and will be exported to countries in Africa and the middle-east.
This marks a new beginning for Volkswagen as far as exports are concerned. Officials from Volkswagen mentioned that the Vento is a car that sells well in the Indian market and that they expect it to be received well internationally as well.
The Vento has traditionally Volkswagen looks and the design has become a popular car among buyers in the entry level sedan segment. Its sharp looking front with the trademark Volkswagen grille and low-set bonnet has gone down well with buyers from all age groups. The rear too has a neat and sorted looking boot.
