VW Polo to get expensive from Jan 2011

Volkswagen announced an increase in the price of the Polo. Starting January 1, 2011 this popular hatchback will witness a hike starting at 2.9%.

Commenting on this, Mr. Neeraj Garg, member of Board & Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd. said “We have been faced with constant rise in input cost over the past several months and have tried our best to absorb it.  However, in order to continue to maintain our quality standards that our customers expect from us we have had to increase the price by a small percentage.”

He further added “Customers, who book the Polo until December 31, 2010, will be able to avail their favourite car at the present prices.”

The Polo was launched in India in March 2010 and has already sold more than 17,000 units as of November 2010.
