Nama ‘Jetta’ Jenama Volkswagen China Sangat Berjaya

‘Jetta’ adalah nama jenama pelbagai kenderaan yang dijual hanya di China

Volkswagen (VW) telah menawarkan kereta murah di China dengan jenama Jetta sejak September tahun lalu. Plat nama ‘Jetta’ telah menjadi sub-jenama di bawah Volkswagen hanya untuk China kerana pembeli kereta China menghormati nama ‘Jetta’ dan mempercayai nilainya.

Sebaliknya berlaku dengan pembeli kereta Malaysia dan nama ‘Jetta’ di Malaysia tidak disukai kerana masalah kebolehpercayaan yang tinggi pada masa lalu dan juga jaminan dan lepas-jualan selepas yang berkaitan dengan model Jetta yang dijual di Malaysia. Namun, pemilik Jetta Malaysia menyukai prestasi dan keselesaan kereta mereka.

Since 1979 VW has been producing the midsize sedan Jetta. VW built the ‘Jetta King’ just in China just for domestic sales between 1997 and 2010.

Pengarah penjualan VW Jürgen Stackmann bercakap mengenai potensi pasaran yang belum dimanfaatkan di China. Sejauh ini, terdapat 100 kereta setiap 1,000 penduduk di bandar-bandar. Kelas kumpulan pertengahan muda, yang baharu muncul mencari kereta murah dengan harga permulaan dari 10,000 hingga 20,000 euro, yang setakat ini ditawarkan hampir secara eksklusif oleh pengeluar China. Semasa membeli kereta pertama, seisi keluarga mengumpulkan wang dan sangat penting bagi pemandu untuk memiliki kereta. VW ingin mendapatkan sepotong kek pembeli pertama yang besar ini.

Satu peratus bahagian pasaran dicapai

Krisis korona juga memacu perniagaan kerana banyak orang ingin menghindari peningkatan risiko jangkitan pada pengangkutan awam dan berkongsi teksi. Dengan model tahap kemasukan yang berpatutan, jenama itu semakin popular di China. ‘Jetta’ dapat mengirimkan 13.500 kenderaan pada bulan April tahun ini, yang setara dengan pangsa pasar sekitar satu persen. Sejak dilancarkan pada bulan September 2019, sekitar 81,000 kenderaan berjaya sampai ke rumah pengguna China.

Rangkaian ‘Jetta’ telah dilengkapkan pada Mac 2020 ini dengan model SUV kompak, ‘Jetta VS7’.

Walaupun penurunan penjualan korona di pasaran China melebihi 30 peratus (Januari hingga April 2020), penjualan jenama VW baharu hanya turun 12 peratus pada tempoh yang sama yang diukur dari segi penjualan dari bulan September hingga Disember 2019.

Sebagai tambahan kepada VS7, rangkaian model ‘Jetta’ terdiri daripada SUV VS5 kompak dan sedan VA3.

Pengeluaran China

Kenderaan Jetta melancarkan barisan pemasangan di rakan usaha sama lama VW, FAW-Volkswagen di Chengdu. Ketua reka bentuk VW Klaus Bischoff telah merancang penampilan unik ‘China Only’ untuk jenama itu dan model Jetta pertama dilancarkan di China pada suku ketiga 2018 dan VW Jetta Amerika Utara (gambar di bawah), yang tidak berkaitan secara optik atau teknikal, mengekalkan nama modelnya.

Kenyataan Media: With the new JETTA Brand, Volkswagen intends to exploit its market potential in China even more effectively. In many cities with millions of people outside the metropolitan regions such as Beijing or Shanghai, vehicle ownership levels are still very low, in some cases below 100 cars per 1,000 inhabitants.

At the same time, members of a growing middle class are striving for individual mobility with the first car of their own. With the new JETTA brand, Volkswagen especially intends to target these young Chinese customers. The JETTA model range, which ito be produced by FAW-Volkswagen in Chengdu, will include one sedan and two SUVs. Sales are scheduled to start in the third quarter of this year.

Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Volkswagen brand Board of Management responsible for Sales, says: “With JETTA, we are closing the gap between the established VW lead brand in the top volume segment and entry-level mobility, which accounts for about one third of the Chinese market and is served mainly by local brands. This way, we will significantly increase our market coverage.”

JETTA is based on the key elements of the Volkswagen DNA: quality, safety, value and a clear design language. With the introduction of JETTA, the Volkswagen umbrella brand will be able to position itself even more clearly as “top of volume” with its vehicles and to further sharpen its profile. In addition, with this offering specially tailored to the needs of the Chinese market and developed together with FAW-Volkswagen, Volkswagen is forging ahead with the further regionalization of the market.

Stackmann: “In China, the Jetta plays an extremely valuable role for us as a Volkswagen model. It has brought mobility for the masses, just like the Beetle once did in Europe. Developed by Volkswagen and built in China, the Jetta China has placed China on four wheels. To this day, it is one of Volkswagen’s most popular models in China – a real icon. This is why we are transforming a model into a brand for the first time in the history of Volkswagen and establishing a separate model and brand family.”

New approaches are also to be adopted in sales. JETTA will establish its own network of dealerships and will approach customers directly with innovative sales formats – digital showrooms, shopping malls and mobile sales trucks. By year end, about 200 dealers are to offer the new brand.

In China, the Volkswagen brand delivered 3.11 million vehicles to customers last year (down 2.1 percent on the previous year). With a share of almost 50 percent in worldwide deliveries, China is therefore Volkswagen’s largest single market. In a market affected by an overall fall in sales (-4.6 percent compared with the previous year), Volkswagen was able to win market shares. In 2018, Volkswagen also delivered the 30 millionth Volkswagen to a Chinese customer. Since Volkswagen came to China more than 30 years ago, the brand has clearly asserted its number one position. China is not only the world’s largest automobile market but is also at the forefront of the greatest transformation ever experienced by the automotive industry. The country is the new powerhouse for e-mobility, digitalization, connectivity and autonomous driving.
