Volkswagen inaugurated its used cars business Das WeltAuto in India with its dealership in Mumbai on November 6. The company has commenced operations with 15 dealerships across the country and plans to end the year with a total of 21 dealerships. The dealerships will trade in cars from all manufacturers and won’t be restricted to just Volkswagen cars. It will also offer a one year warranty on all VW cars sold, while non-VW cars will be sold with a six month warranty. The company claims that every car sold will be put through a stringent 160-point checklist to ensure that the car provides a hassle-free ownership experience.
Arvind Saxena, managing director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group, said, “We believe that every customer is important even if it is a pre-owned car buyer, and we are committed towards providing our customers the same experience as that of a new car. At Das WeltAuto, we have stringent systems and processes that ensure every pre-owned car undergoes a 160 point checklist which is part of our standard protocol ensuring a hassle-free driving experience.”
