German auto maker Volkswagen today said it has commenced the deliveries of its first sub 4 meter sedan Ameo, in India. The bookings for the car, which would be manufactured at the company's Pune plant, began on May 12. "We are very happy to bring this Made in India and Made for India sedan to our customers now, as we initiate the deliveries," Volkswagen Passenger Cars India Director Michael Mayer said in a statement.
The model Ameo has garnered positive response from the prospective customers ever since its debut at the Delhi Motor Show in February this year and its journey through key Indian cities, he added. The new model would compete with the likes of Maruti DZire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent and Ford Figo Aspire that are priced between Rs 5.21 and Rs 8.57 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). All variants of Volkswagen Ameo come equipped with dual front airbags and ABS as standard. The car is now available across all Volkswagen showrooms in the country, the company said. Customers can also book the Ameo through the mobile application available on the Google PlayStore, it added.
