VW to build up! in India

According to inside line, VW has announced that it will build the up coming up! micro car in Chakan India. Plans from VW are to sell 240,000 cars per year in India by 2012. And they are looking to the up! and the current Polo to be the leaders of the battle.

The Passat is currently on sale there and proving quite popular. Plans are also calling for the next generation Jetta and Phaeton to also go on sale in the next few years.

The up! will hopefully bring the joys of car ownership to thousands. And with a price tag of right around $7,500. They may have the next Beetle on their hands.
