Some days back in Pune, a Volkswagen Vento had ended up in flmaes. The driver of the car- Mr. Kailash Gupta, had sustained serious burns and succumbed to them last week. A VW said , ‘Our dealer is in close contact with the family. The safety of our customers is of utmost priority to us‘.
It may be noted VW is a relatively new entrant in Indian car market and this is the first time that such an incident has occurred with a Vokswagen car. The burnt VW Vento was collected by the manufacturer for further investigation. Now, the Deccan Gymnkhana, Pune police will act as per the report submitted by VW. VW Spokesperson added , ‘Our technical experts are investigating‘.
While we are sad about the loss of a life, we strongly feel that VW should be quick with its investigation and come out openly with the findings.
