BS6: Volkswagen Diesel Engines expected to comeback soon?

Volkswagen may soon introduce its BS6 Diesel Engines for the high end models in India. After the Government decided to make a mandatory shift to BS6 compliant vehicles, many automakers discontinued their diesel engines in the country due to huge upgradation cost of BS4 engines to BS6 engines in Diesel. Just like other companies, Volkswagen also adapted a Petrol only strategy in India to start with BS6 engines. However sources confirm that Volkswagen is soon going to introduce BS6 Diesel engines for its bigger vehicles.

Official sources confirm that 2.0 Litre TDi engine will be introduced with BS6 compliance and the company is already working on testing the same.  Diesel engines are known for strong power and punch that they offer and the same performance can’t be felt with Petrol motors. However Volkswagen won’t be introducing petrol engines for lower models. 


The expensive exhaust after treatment systems to upgrade BS4 to BS6 to meet emission norms make it difficult to introduce Diesel motors in the lower models as the cost of upgrade to the vehicle won’t be justified at all. The brand has already introduced “India 2.0” project with an investment estimated at around Rs. 8000 crore to boost up Volkswagen’s presence in the country.  Volkswagen is expected to expand its dealership network in the country  with introducing new dealers in the Tier-3 and Tier-4 cities and it will be the time when the company will reintroduce Diesel Motor. 

A 2.0L TDi Diesel Motor makes the most sense as Volkswagen is going to expand the SUV line in India as it has already introduced the first two products of 2020 that are both SUVs. A New Tiguan All Space and T-Roc are the new SUVs that have been introduced by the company in India. A new Creta Rival SUV- The Taigun is in pipeline and will be launched sometime in 2021. Also a replacement to the popular sedan Vento is also expected anytime in 2021. 

Volkswagen also introduced 4Ever Care in February 2019 last year that comes as standard with all new Volkswagen cars in India. Volkswagen 4Ever Care included a 4 Year/ 1,00,000 Kms warranty, 3 free services and a 4 Year Road Side assistance will all Volkswagen Cars. However since the introduction of 4Ever Care its customers in India did not report a reduce in service costs or improvement in service experience.

Hope, Volkswagen India 2.0 Strategy would focus on improving the Service experience of the German Manufacturer in India.
