Volkswagen India, the Indian arm of the German brand has announced that it plans to emphasise its focus on the used car business in India. Through the Das WeltAuto 3.0 (DWA) programme, Volkswagen India aims to provide a more transparent, professional and organised outlet for people who are looking to buy a used or pre-owned vehicle or sell their existing one. Through the Das WeltAuto 3.0, Volkswagen India will not only cater to selling pre-owned Volkswagens but other brands as well. Through the DWA, the German brand claims that it will be able to offer competitive prices with certified pre-owned vehicles in addition to accessories, service and even warranty packages on all pre-owned models it sells through the platform. Volkswagen has a network of 150 DWA multi-brand pre-owned vehicle sales outlets across the country.

Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India, Steffen Knapp said, “Through the Das WeltAuto facilities and the business peripherals attached to it, Volkswagen aims to shift the used car business segment from an unorganised to organised segment. We intend to offer a digitally enabled, professionally managed, value for money proposition to customers looking for individual mobility options. We are confident DWA will gain the momentum and be relevant in the post COVID era”
