Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Private Limited (SAVWIPL) has revealed its sales figures for H1 2022. With 52,698 units sold in the first six months of 2022, the Volkswagen Group India has recorded its best-ever half-yearly sales. SAVWIPL manages the Indian operations of five VW Group brands, which include Skoda, Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, and Lamborghini.
Through the first six months of 2022, Skoda Auto Volkswagen India’s sales have been up by a massive 200 per cent year-on-year. However, it’s worth mentioning that the base year recorded lower than usual figures due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. The VW Group has launched 10 models in India in the first half of 2022 and they plan to continue ramping up its product portfolio in the year ahead.
Commenting on the announcement, Piyush Arora, Managing Director, ŠKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Private Limited, said, “With our robust half-yearly sales, we are scripting a new success story in India. Our strong brand portfolio is performing exceptionally well across market segments, with our INDIA 2.0 cars driving significant volumes for the Group.”
He further added, “The growth in sales is supported by other important markers as well. We achieved 100% growth in production and 35% growth in exports during this period. While we are confident of maintaining this momentum, we continue to grapple with the challenges caused by the geopolitical instability, and continued semiconductor shortage which are upsetting supply chain.”
