Volkswagen, the German carmaker has started exporting the Polo, which is made in India to Mexico. The company is exporting the new Polo 1.6 Highline variant.
Volkswagen had earlier entered the Mexican market, exporting the Indian made Volkswagen Vento, about a year ago.
Almost every second Polo or the Vento made at the Volkswagen factory in Chakan, is a vehicle that is being shipped out. The factory so far has exported almost 89,000 units.
The German automaker started exporting cars made in the Pune plant from 2011. The company's first export market abroad was South Africa and at present, Indian made cars are being exported to 32 different countries.
Mahesh Kodumudi, the Managing Director and the Pune Plant President for Volkswagen said, "With the successful entry in Mexico last year with our Vento, we set an example of world-class quality being manufactured in India."
"We build the same quality of cars in Pune as around the world with equally robust construction. The Polo built in India has achieved a 4-star Global NCAP rating which is a strength when it comes to exporting to global markets."
The cars that being exported are left-hand drive as well as right-hand drive vehicles.
