VW supports slow-selling Phaeton with new incentives

Wolfsburg, Germany. Volkswagen launched new incentives to support its slow-selling Phaeton luxury sedan.

Buyers who opt out of leasing contracts with rival manufacturers will get a 5,000 euros bonus from VW if they switch to a Phaeton.

Customers who already lease a Phaeton also will receive financial incentives if they order a new Phaeton.

VW has also launched a "demonstration vehicle campaign" to increase sales of the Golf, the Touran and other VW models.

Dealers who order extra demonstration cars will receive a premium of six percent of the model's retail price. The dealers must keep the demonstration cars for a minimum of three months.
