Shanghai, June 24 (Gasgoo.com) The sales networks of FAW-VW-made cars and the imported VW cars are expected to be merged. Winfried Vahland, CEO of Volkswagen (China), has come to an agreement recently on the VW brand sales network integration with Qin Huanming ,the vice general manager of China's First Auto Works (FAW).

Currently, dealerships of FAW-VW exceed 350 nationwide, but only about 40 of them are authorized dealerships for selling the imported VW cars. Home-made and imported VW vehicles will come up in a same 4S dealership after the sales networks of FAW-VW-made cars and imported VW cars being merged.
