MUMBAI: German automaker Volkswagen on Friday said it had rolled out 10 percent more units last year as compared to the number of units manufactured at its Pune plant in 2014.

In a statement Volkswagen India Private Ltd. said that it rolled out 123,456 units last year from its Pune plant which is 12,012 units higher or 10 percent more as compared to 2014 numbers.

"Volkswagen Pune Plant has increased its production for the third year in a row. This has been possible because of the increased demand from both domestic and export markets," Andreas Lauermann, president and managing director, Volkswagen India was quoted as saying in the statement.

He added further: "Unfortunately, the global emission topic slowed down our development in the second half of the year and held us back from an even better result. With the new compact sedan, we have a new car in the production pipeline which will help us in carrying the pace forward in 2016 too."

The total production of 123,456 cars at Volkswagen Pune Plant included approximately 72,000 Volkswagen Vento cars, 38,800 Volkswagen Polo cars and 12,700 sKODA Rapid cars.

The domestic production grew strongly with an increase of approximately 23 percent to approximately 54,140 units while the export production maintained its strong base with a growth of four percent to 69,300 units in 2015 as compared to 2014.

Till date, Volkswagen Pune plant has rolled out over 575,000 cars since the start of production in March 2009.
