Realising that there is going to be good demand for used cars post COVID-19, Volkswagen India has introduced Das WeltAuto 3.0 to provide a professional purchase experience and consultation to its customers interested in purchasing or selling a pre-owned car. As on date, there are 105 Das WeltAuto facilities across India.
According to Volkswagen, the Das WeltAuto facilities offer buying and selling of all brand pre-owned cars and isn’t restricted to customers looking to exchange their existing cars for a new Volkswagen. This enables customers to utilize the expertise of Volkswagen’s extensive DWA network in making informed decisions. This is a holistic business offering and brand promise of providing competitively priced used cars, thoroughly checked and certified along with offering accessories, service and warranty packages (up to 12 months) to prospective customers. Each pre-owned vehicle undergoes a due diligence process, which identifies and replaces defective parts and is completely refurbished for sale. Post refurbishment, the car is inspected by a third-party inspector who then certifies the pre-owned car.
For a seamless and contactless experience, the brand has enabled digitalization of its used car business. Prospective customers can now buy or sell their pre-owned vehicle on the DWA website. Another value addition for customers looking to sell their vehicle is the introduction of the Das WeltAuto Valuator. A unique mobile application that enables customers to self-evaluate their current vehicle. The whole process is swift and transparent as the valuations are provided basis the algorithms given by the ‘Indian Blue Book’. The mobile application is available for both Android and iOS platforms.
