German auto giant Volkswagen’s Indian counterpart has announced that its all-new sub-compact sedan model will be called the Volkswagen Ameo in the country’s domestic car market. The just christened Volkswagen Ameo is the highly speculated new upcoming sub-compact sedan which has been testing in India. Volkswagen India has also revealed that the all-new Ameo will make its global debut at the soon to commence 2016 Auto Expo.
As per the reports, Volkswagen India plans to take the wraps off its three new vehicle models at the upcoming Indian Auto Expo, and the new Volkswagen Ameo will be one among these three new products.
Last year, during the launch ceremony of the new generation Volkswagen Vento sedan, Volkswagen India’s head, Mr. Michael Mayer had announced the company’s plans to launch as many as 5 new vehicles models in the car market of India in the time period of the next 2 years. The new Ameo sub-compact sedan is going to be one of these new products from the stable of Volkswagen in India and will be one of the most important upcoming launches for the company.
As per the company statement the new upcoming Volkswagen Ameo’s official name is based on the Latin word ‘Amo’, that literally means ‘I Love.’ Like many new car models coming from the global auto giants, the Volkswagen Ameo is also an India centric product and its most remarkable highlight lies in the fact that the German car major has designed and developed this new small sedan exclusively for the Indian market, although it might be exported to similar car markets after its Indian launch. This makes the Ameo the first India specific car coming from a German car maker.
Volkswagen India claims that the new upcoming Ameo sub-compact sedan model is going be a very special product that has been specifically crafted for the Indian car market and a lot of love and care have gone into making the product. The new Ameo has combined the brand’s best qualities and will be offering best safety features in its own class along with superior build quality and superb driving experience. The car’s design language is also outlined with emotion that has been conceptualized to impress as per Volkswagen.
As already mentioned, the new Volkswagen Ameo is designed for India, and will be locally manufactured at the Volkswagen India’s Chakan production plant. The new Volkswagen Ameo is expected to be the company’s new game changer owing to the huge potential and popularity of the Indian compact sedan segment that the car is getting into.
One of the big launches from Volkswagen India, the 21st century Volkswagen Beetle has already taken place recently. While the Volkswagen Ameo will be unveiled to India and to the world at the 2016 Auto Expo, the company is yet to announce its launch date which might be revealed at the event along with other details. Volkswagen will also unveil the new Volkswagen Tiguan premium SUV and the Passat GTE hybrid at the Expo.
