Volkswagen, Europe's biggest car maker by sales, is aiming for a 10% market share in India by 2018.

Does slowdown worry you?
We want to increase our market share. We had a very successful 2011 in which we doubled our market share to nearly 5%. The market will stabilise again after this short friction. We want to grow more than the market because we are still a newcomer.

Any plans for something smaller than Polo for Inida?
If we think of smaller cars we need some more production capacity.

What's your strategy on Maruti?
We are newcomers and don't have any target to beat Suzuki in this market.

How do you plan to replicate your European success in India?
We are trying to replicate our global success in India. We are aiming for a market share of 10% by 2018.
