ŠKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Private Limited has resumed production at its Aurangabad plant after the coronavirus-related production stop. At the Pune plant, the manufacturer is continuing preparations for the start of vehicle assembly under the INDIA 2.0 project. The state government of Maharashtra and the local authorities has approved the restart, and both plants have implemented comprehensive safety measures. To ensure the best possible protection of employees’ health, a safety protocol with 60 specific measures is in place at both sites. The company prepared the Start Safe protocol in close consultation with health care professionals.

Production at the Aurangabad plant will initially restart in single-shift operation. The new ŠKODA SUPERB, which makes its debut on the Indian market this week, will be rolling off its production line. At the same time, production of other model ranges, as well as other Group brands’ vehicles, will gradually resume. As the situation in the supply chain eases and personnel availability continues to improve, production is being progressively ramped up to full capacity.

ŠKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Private Limited is also further intensifying preparations for the INDIA 2.0 project. Sites are being modernised, new facilities are being built, and further steps are being taken towards the start of production of the SUV family based on the MQB platform A0 IN. This version of the modular transverse matrix is specially tailored to the Indian market. It serves as the technological basis for future models of ŠKODA and Volkswagen. With the ŠKODA VISION IN and the Volkswagen Taigun, the first concept studies of future series vehicles were exhibited at the Delhi Auto EXPO in February 2020.
