Volkswagen Brings Out ‘Digital Workplace’ Initiative for Dealerships to Provide Better Sales & After-sales experience
Volkswagen has come out with ‘Digital Workplace’ initiative for all its 121 authorized dealerships spread across 104 cities in India. As part of the new initiative, the personnel at the dealerships will assist the customers to know their cars better by using a digital application. The software will show the competition comparison, vehicle presentation, test-drive registrations, financing solutions and much more.
However, what is more pleasing is the truth that this application will even come helpful for customers whilst going for after-sales services. The initiative has a 6-step process and VW users will get timely updates through SMS about their car at the service station, right from the time the service begins to service ends. Customers post the final service can opt for either driving home their vehicles personally or can ask the dealerships to drop them at their locations.
One of the Volkswagen Service Center Hyderabad said actually this is a good process that benefits the customers. According to the Volkswagen press statement below are the key points of the initiative.
- All 121 dealers across 104 locations will have the Digital Workplace software.
- The initiative is a step towards enhancing and changing the sales and post-sales experience.
- The ‘Digital Workplace’ software will allow advisors towards the 360-degree view, lead capturing, vehicle presentation, competition comparison, research financing answers, and list test-drives in addition to others.
- Customers using the 6-step procedure will get timely updates through SMS about their vehicles at the workstations.
- The application can also be used to tailor-make a customized vehicle or product pamphlet for the customers with chosen features.
- The application even lets technicians enrich the post-sales experience of customers at the service stations by displaying and explaining them the total repair work needed on their vehicles.
Mr. Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars speaking on the launch of the initiative said, “People are at the centre of Volkswagen’s business and with the Digital Workplace initiative, we aim to enhance the sales and after-sales processes as well as digitalize the customer buying experience. As the country moves a step forward with the Digitalize India campaign, this is yet another enterprise to fully integrate our dealerships and provide a premium user experience. It is our endeavor to offer our customers, all of Volkswagen’s services at the comfort and convenience of their homes.”
All the features of the application are installed in Volkswagen’s internal Sales Force portal, letting dealers across the locations to get benefits of it. Very recently I visited Volkswagen service center near me at Suchitra and got complete details after which I felt the initiative is worth it given the brand name the Volkswagen carries in the semi-premium segment.
Usually what happens with high-end sports bikes or cars is….the owners modify them to a certain degree and they are all set to hit the race tracks but what would be your feeling if we say Volkswagen Motorsports India is on plans to sell out their track-specific race cars to individuals.
Volkswagen first began making track cars with Polo followed by the Vento and Ameo. The company has given an option for the people to buy either race-spec Vento or Ameo. Going into details about these cars, the Ameo used in race tracks has a 1.8-litre motor that’s capable of delivering whooping 205 bhp power.
In addition, the engine also has a BMC intake system and a race-inclined sequential gearbox which comes in full automatic mode. The sequential gearbox allows quick change of gears. The data logging and engine management have been done through a Motec setup, the Ameo even has an all-digital instrument cluster.
MRF ZLO race rubber takes on the traction control of the Ameo. To help hold yourself in place the Ameo has an OMP race seat which assists in placing the driver intact. The Ameo has race spec roll-cage certified by FMSCI, 1 fire extinguisher and body structure that is seam welded. For added traction, there’s a big rear wing which gives out sufficient downforces.
Well, do you know what this special quantified Ameo cost would be? Volkswagen quotes the price at INR 40 lakhs.
Coming to Vento on the other side it has a 1.8-litre motor that delivers 210 bhp power, due to the presence of the ITC spec restrictor plate and forego the restrictor, it will produce a mammoth 250 bhp power. Additionally one can choose either a sequential gearbox having a manual shifter or an H-Pattern 6-speed transmission. It too has a race-spec fire extinguisher, roll cage and race seats. KW tailored the suspension clubbed with Eibach springs for additional cornering stability. This race Vento has a set of specially designed forged wheels made by Wheels India Limited. Each wheel weighs just about 6.5 kgs.
The Vento comes with immaculate brakes that give exceptional braking due to the race brake pads, the front brakes are Volkswagen Golf R32 sourced whilst the rear brakes are from the Octavia RS. The big rear wing which is present on the race-specific Ameo is not present on the Vento by default, however, can be taken as a preferred option. Extra aero parts such as a rear splitter, front splitter in addition to a set of canards for the bumper are found in Vento. Volkswagen Motorsports is even offering a different ECU map that gives the car maximum of 300bhp.
The Vento is priced at Rs. 24 lakhs (with no extra options) and Rs. 40 lakhs for the extra options stated above. So, sounds good if you are looking out for a race-specific car, isn’t it?
If this is the case with race-specific variants the Volkswagen has come out with many offers on its all passenger vehicles including Polo. The company is celebrating Volksfest and has slashed down the prices with great discounts and offers. Below are the offers and final prices on Volkswagen models.

No other vehicle actually created such a buzz than TIGUAN in the Volkswagen family. Probably the design, the look and apart from all the brand value of Volkswagen have all fell in line to make the Tiguan a real roaring beast on the roads, especially on Indian roads. Apart from the above said, here are also the reasons that make buying Tiguan the best bet.
No matter wherever you sit, be it in the back seats or the front seats the comfort never changes. The best seating comfort is guaranteed equally in all the 5 seats. There is plenty of leg and headroom both in the rear and front. In addition, you find N number of optional extras that make your life in the car more than comfortable. This is the advantage the car carries in addition to the other cars of its kind. Most of the 5-seat cars have lesser room at the rear and so come with lesser comfort at the mid-rear seat in comparison to the rest of the two but this isn’t the case with our Tiguan. There are many useful cubbyholes upfront inclusive of a coolbox – for storing your things, and also under seat drawers for occupants at the front seats, on SE-trim variants and higher.
The boot of the Tiguan is as large as flexible, and it is one of the bigger boots in its kind, giving more room than that of many others said a service expert of a leading Volkswagen service center Hyderabad. There is a sliding back bench, which augments the boot space considerably along with a modifiable boot floor and net partitions on variants over and above the entry model.
Security and safety:
Being a premium-end car one can easily understand that the safety and security are high-above than normal ones. The emergency braking system, ABS, 6 airbags, hill assist, and Active Hood give the best security and safety.
In Tiguan behind the wheel is a predominantly good place to be – the dashboard is spread out in characteristically instinctive VW style, connoting there is no requirement for the steering wheel to be button-heavy. The pedaling system is positioned nicely.
Volkswagen is known for its rich technology breakthrough and this can be felt in the Tiguan. No matter whether you are in Highline or Comfortline you can feel the richness and refinement of technology and comfort zone. Silent & powerful engine, panoramic sunroof, rain sensing wipers and apart from all the toughness of Volkswagen body, a Volkswagen specific all make you feel the refined Volkswagen drive. It also has good ground clearance making it feel like a full-SUV rather than a compact one.
Volkswagen cars have been preferred cars for Indians since the German maker started selling its cars on the Indian soil. They have won the hearts of Indians with sheer technology & durability and that’s why these cars though premium in the Indian market have been hotcakes and the same is continuing with every new model released. The demand for these cars rises peak high during festive seasons and one such season is DUSSEHRA
Keeping in view the demand for the cars and also the festive sanctity we are bringing out the waiting period for Volkswagens this Navratri. Despite the demand for VWs, the good news is that any model from the house doesn’t have more than 20-day waiting period provided you book by this weekend. Good news right? So if you are planning to buy a Volkswagen why not buy this Navratri season and bring home the German technology & safe driving with it.
Well, according to a trusted source below is the waiting period for VWs across all the major cities in India.
Here’s the waiting period on VW cars across major Indian cities.
Here are your takeaways:
In case Pune is sheltering you and you are in plans to buy the Polo and get it delivered in the Navratri period book it quickly as it has a 4-week waiting period, the maximum waiting period for any VW car in this city. In rest of the cities, you can take a chance by 7 days and still expect to get your car delivered during Navratri. If buying anywhere doesn’t matter then you can book it at Volkswagen authorized dealer Hyderabad, PPS Motors as there’s no waiting period.
Ameo & Polo both have identical waiting time. Having said this we suggest you hit the showrooms as early as possible if you are planning an Ameo purchase during Dussehra.
Vento is nothing less to the above two models. It too has the same waiting period as the above two. So again the best bet to own it would be visiting your nearest showroom by this week.
In case you live in Bangalore and wish to drive away Passat in this Navaratri period then we again suggest an earlier visit to Volkswagen showrooms in Bangalore. You can also try your luck at PPS Motors, the authorized Volkswagen dealer in Bangalore. The waiting period for this sedan is one month, the highest in this city. The sooner your booking is the maximum is your chance to see your Passat in your parking lot.

Volkswagen is known to bring out cars that are reliable, durable & operation friendly. The house is known to engineer cars that can easily go well both with the beginners & experts and one such car from the Volkswagen is PASSAT.
If you are family of 4 or so there is always a comfort owning a sedan rather than possessing a hatchback or SUV (we don’t say these variants are bad, but given the number (4) we say a sedan goes well). One such sedan we at PPS Motors sincerely recommend is Passat, because it is affordable, spacious, and also a safe vehicle. Its stylishness, sleekness, and sophistication purely make it the modern sedan to own. It has the beauty in interiors and the appeal in the exteriors.
Want to know why authorized Volkswagen dealers recommend Passat as your reliable car. Here we go with the exclusive Passat features.
The Newest Technology:
The onboard technology Passat has is the latest which gives a pleasing driving experience. It has a Volkswagen built Car-Net App that lets easily connect with all your mobile gadgets — both Android and Apple. Streamlining tunes, control panel accessing using the touch-screen display and also accessing phone apps on the screen becomes easy.
Remarkable Safety Features:
This classy sedan has got the best safety features both in & out. The automatic brake system is what is the most needed on Indian roads and it has that. 9 airbags, the inbuilt GPS, cruise control, and Park Assist redefine your safety standards.
A Design that’s Sophisticated:
In case a sophisticated and smart vehicle that’s fully reliable and safe is your choice then service head at Volkswagen service center Khajaguda blindly suggests going for Passat. Its latest design does not have anything lacking inclusive climate control, enough backseat legroom, leather seats, and awesome air conditioning.
If that’s classy about Passat interiors then the rock-hard Passat’s exterior bodywork is what you can depend upon to save the exteriors against scrapes and dents. This solid out-built is really useful during drives where stone & gravel hits are unexpected. Adding more good features to these it has a panoramic sunroof which makes the sky literally fall in your car. Remember you also have the Easy Open Boot which makes you open the boot with just pushing your leg close to the sensor.
The 2.0-liter, the four-cylinder turbocharged engine delivers performance that is just outstanding in the sedan segment. With DSG automatic transmission your gear shift is easy and you have a smooth acceleration.
Having said all if you still don’t believe just book a test drive at PPS Motors, the authorized Volkswagen dealer in Hyderabad.
Tiguan is another classy & tech-filled SUV from the house of Volkswagen. In the very recent OD SUV Slugfest, this premium SUV won the show with its breathtaking features. Predominantly these features highlighted the SUV’s significance and its exclusive features.
Street presence & styling:
The Tiguan as observed has fine composed proportions and adding to this its solid size makes it perfect for any road. The catchy design is immaculate with straight lines. Adding to this the refined styling is enhanced by the decent looking headlights, fog lights, tail lights etc. The back finish is also as appealing as the front end. More importantly, this fabulous SUV has the attracting street presence usually wanted by many Indian customers.
Visibility and seating:
Though it comes with a high dash the front view is crystal clear. The egress and ingress are outstanding. The cleaning area of wipers is big. The diffused wash sprays are very effective.
The ground clearance of Tiguan is modest but it comes with an all-wheel-drive arrangement with 4 driving means – normal, snow, off-road and individual. The AWD is integrated closely with the traction-control system, electronic-stability system, anti-lock braking, gears shift points and throttle response. Each mode changes the way the SUV senses and acts. The all-wheel-drive functions extremely well and since the overhangs are short, Tiguan is fairly proficient off-road. The hill-descent and hill-assist control are other advantages of Tiguan.
The storage space of the spare wheel is sensible and can be called as one amongst the finest and coolest to reach. The SUV has 2 practical foldable wheel chocks that are infrequent and that are not usually found in many vehicles.
Performance and touring ability:
It has good on-road performance. The engine never lets down when it is to be pushed and in fact, it delivers what you ask for. The handling of the vehicle is accurate and cheers to its comparatively light weight and compact size. The drive quality is relaxed and efficiently chops off the road deficiencies. Even the high-speed steadiness is great and the range of cruising is approximately 1,000km. Don’t ask about the boot space which is simply excellent.
This SUV handles almost all the rod difficulties excellently and is fitted with very receptive and foreseeable steering. The all-wheel drive gives mind blowing traction providing it a car-like feeling. The braking is also perfect.
