With the VW group announcing that it is renewing its focus for the Indian market, the company will be developing India-specific products which will be tailored to suit our tastes. The VW group is also investing heavily to develop local R&D for the same reason. Speaking about the launch of the Ameo’s corporate edition, Mr Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars said, “The made-for-India and made-in-India Ameo is specifically developed for the Indian market. It’s a true testament of German engineering in a compact sedan filled with segment-leading features.
