Volkswagen told about the development of online sales


A number of manufacturers, even before the situation with the coronavirus, launched their own platforms for online car sales in Russia - Renault, Hyundai, Volvo and others. The situation with the pandemic has accelerated the process of introducing new services in the car market, but so far not everyone is ready to announce the transition to direct sales of cars, bypassing dealers or assigning them only an auxiliary role.

Thus, Volkswagen at this stage of the development of the Russian market does not plan to offer direct sales to its customers. The head of the Volkswagen brand in Russia, Thomas Milz, informed the analytical agency AUTOSTAT about it (the full version of the interview is here). According to him, this is due to the fact that the company has a very professional and extensive dealer network in Russia. “We believe it is good to offer our cars and services through a dealer network. About online sales, I have to point out that we were offering online sales to our customers even before the COVID situation. Then there were more than 40 official dealers. Today we already have more than 80 official Volkswagen dealers who offer online sales, including the ability to conclude financial transactions online,” said Mr. Milz.

Recall that Volkswagen first offered Russian buyers the selection and purchase of a car online in December 2018. At first, these were dealerships of the brand only in Moscow and Chelyabinsk, but with the provision of an opportunity for the client to make an advance payment, as well as track the status of booking, payment and delivery of the car in the personal account.
