Porsche India: Porsche forays into pre-owned car segment in India

German luxury sports car maker Porsche said on Wednesday that it has entered the used car segment in India. The Porsche Approved program is now available across India with an extended used-car warranty for a minimum of 12 months, including access to 24-hour roadside assistance after passing a rigorous 111-point inspection, the automaker said in a statement.

Porsche India Brand Director Manolito Vujicic said the initiative aims to ensure more Porsche units remain active on Indian roads for many years to come.

“This is an important step for Porsche India to expand our services into the used car segment as it demonstrates our commitment to customer satisfaction long after the car has been sold and even to customers who have never owned a new Porsche. “, he says. added.

He said that the Porsche Approved program offers a high level of quality through a 111-point check on every Porsche used. This means that each vehicle must meet the standard of its original condition and thus increase the value of any model that bears the “Approved” seal, he added.

With this seal, the company confirms that only genuine Porsche parts have been used and installed by qualified Porsche technicians, Vujicic said.

The 12 month warranty covers repairs to all vehicle components, including labor, except for consumables and wearing parts such as wiper blades, tires, fluids and brake pads.

Although the term depends on the age of the vehicle, it usually covers all Porsches that have not yet driven 200,000 km and are up to six years old. Porsche sales in India grew 22 percent in the first quarter of the current calendar year to 188 units, marking its best first quarter performance since 2013.

The brand’s SUV range, consisting of the Cayenne and Macan, remains the top-selling models in the range.
