Volkswagen on COVID-19

Dear valued Volkswagen customers,

Volkswagen South Africa is now fully operational and following guidelines of the level 1 lockdown regulation issued on the 28th February 2021.

Dealerships have prepared for full operations in the following phases;

Phase One – Dealerships are operating with a maximum of 30% of staff members and the majority of car sales are done remotely (via the internet or telephone). Home deliveries of fully sanitised vehicles are mandatory.

Phase Two – Dealerships will be operating with up to 60% of staff members and limited customers can enter the dealership under stringent hygiene and social distancing conditions. On-site pick-ups and deliveries of fully sanitised cars will be conducted.

Phase Three – Current phase; Dealerships will be operating with 100% staff and customers will be allowed on-site (although this will still be kept to a minimum).

In all three phases, test drives can only be arranged on appointment while car auctions must be conducted online.
