Headquartered in Pune, Maharashtra, the Volkswagen Group in India is represented by five brands: SKODA, Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche and Lamborghini. The Indian journey began with the launch of SKODA in 2001. Audi and Volkswagen entered in 2007, while Lamborghini and Porsche were introduced in 2012. Today, the Group upholds its mantle of superior engineering, with plants in Pune and Aurangabad working seamlessly to manufacture the world's most loved cars.
The Volkswagen Group India is a part of Volkswagen AG, which is globally represented by 12 brands from 7 European countries. 11 automotive brands: Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Scania, SEAT, SKODA, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge) and MAN; and 1 motorcycle brand: Ducati. An impressive line-up that prides itself as much in its quality of engineering, as in its depth of innovation.
From low-consumption small cars to luxury class vehicles, each car is convincingly worthy of its place on the road. Even in the commercial vehicle sector - where products range from pick-ups to buses and heavy trucks - the Group's cars successfully partner businesses and are known to far exceed the industry standard. This benchmark, that is truly gold standard, has helmed the group in its operations across 100 production plants around the world. More than 500,000 employees are involved in vehicle-manufacturing services and their related processes. Together, they produce about 30,000 vehicles each working day.
