Volkswagen got rid of shortened Polo

April 8, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Volkswagen has stopped producing subcompact Ameo sedans, which they developed based on the Polo model, exclusively for the Indian car market.

This decision of the German brand is due to low demand. Since the beginning of the production cycle – in May 2016 – the sales volume of Ameo slightly exceeded 50,000 copies. For a car belonging to the second most demanded type of car – sedans, the length of which is less than 4 m – these are very low results.

For example, the sales volume of the segment leader – the Maruti Dzire sedan – last year in India amounted to 200,000 units.
 The production of the Ameo model was carried out at the corporation’s automobile enterprises in the Indian city of Pune, along with the Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento models, which are built on the same platform.

Instead of leaving the car in the ultra-budget lineup, the German company will not present anything soon, focusing on preparing the release of the car on the new MQB architecture. We are talking about the subcompact cross Taigun and the hatchback Polo seventh generation.
