All,

I hope this brings some cheer to our automobile engineering friends, looks like the market is looking up in automobile here in India:

Europe's largest car maker Volkswagen is planning to more than double its India headcount with addition of 1,500 employees at its Chakan plant alone in Maharashtra.

The group, which started production at Chakan near Pune in March 2008, is looking at full-capacity production at this plant by 2012 and would need to strengthen its staff strength for the same, its India head said.

Volkswagen has two facilities in India at Aurangabad and Chakan, which assembles cars of its three brands -- Skoda, Audi and Volkswagen.

"We opened our Chakan facility this year and it is producing Skoda Fabia now, but in small numbers. When we will launch the small car Polo next year, the numbers will increase," Volkswagen Group India president and managing director Joerg Mueller told PTI.

Volkswagen AG, which recently took a stake in Suzuki Motor Corp to step up its presence in India, said it aims to grab 8-10 percent of the country's market share in the next 4-6 years.
