Iconic VW Beetle Coming to India in November!

Recommended Posts

I think the introduction of the Beetle in India will be symbolic rather than any serious attempt to ensure large sales. I don't think Indians will go in for it, particularly as it is a two-door car with an air-cooled engine (unless they have switched to a water-cooled one). Perhaps, young working women may opt for it in the beginning. That's all, in my opinion.

Even in the world markets, the New Beetle is considered as an  as a mid priced car and is not so commonly seen on the streets as the Beetle of yore used to be. The older Beetle was an iconic people's car. <?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Come the New Beetle here in <?:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />India, we may see a few here and there as buyers would prefer buying the Honda Accord or the Toyota Camry and even the Skoda Superb for that price tag. Only true blue New Beetle fans here will buy this car.

The news is, its going to come to India shortly, so it is a part of  Indian car scene.

 

If I talk about Mini cooper in this segment, you can say it is not a part of  Indian car scene. But 500 is in sales in India, and Beetle shortly.

 

Is your definition of  Indian car scene. is confined only to Indian made and CKDs, if so , you need to move tonnes of threads to International Scene.

THREADS MERGED.

How can he get a news before two months, which VW officials say yesterday. Is he VW's CEO.
