According to Stefan Schaller, board spokesperson for VW’s commercial vehicles business, “India deserves a good taxi. We are at a very advanced stage in our talks with a JV partner for this business.”

Volkswagen senses that there is a rapid growth in tourism industry in India and many of them prefer to travel by taxis rather than self-driving. The car is proclaimed to be priced somewhere around Rs 8-9 lakh.
