A strange move by Volkswagen India has surfaced as they have asked their dealers to stop delivering Polo hatchback to customers with immediate effect. As for now, no explanation have come from the manufacturer elaborating on the question ‘Why?’ but the company has kept deliveries of all the Polo variants on a halt, including both petrol and diesel trims.
The manufacturer has sent a circular quoting “We request, not to deliver any Polo vehicle (All variants) with immediate effect till further notice from VW.” It is signed by two of VW’s Senior officials- Pankaj Sharma, Head of Sales Operation and Ashish Gupta, head of after sales. The letter addresses VW’s dealer partners and no other reason is mentioned for this decision.
