Volkswagen India is quite keen on making the Polo a huge success when they launch the hatchback next year from their new Pune facility. After the not so successful launch of the Skoda Fabia, Volkswagen is worried about meeting its India Polo target of 25,000 units a year. Thus to ensure success of the Polo, Volkswagen has put a target price of Rs. 4 lakh for the base variant of the Polo which will be equipped with the naturally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol engine.
Volkswagen will also launch a sedan version of the Polo. The Polo sedan which will be named after a wind will compete with the Honda City and is expected with Volkswagen and Audi’s state-of-the-art petrol and diesel engines. Volkswagen plan to sell 25,000 units of the saloon as well, which won’t be easy considering Honda City is the most famous saloon in the country.
