Our journey started in 1922, when Mr. Manikchand Veerchand Shah started the Automobile Dealership business under the aegis of 'Sholapur Motor Stores' and then, 'India Garage Ltd.' in 1934 with the franchise for Chevrolet Cars, Skoda Cars, Bushing Nag Trucks and Zundapp Motorcycles till World War –II stopped the imports.
In 1947, his son Mr. Vidyachandra Manikchand Shah started 'The Premier Garage' with the franchise of Plymouth cars, Fargo trucks and Fiat cars as authorized dealers of Premier Automobiles Ltd. He also started Massey Ferguson Tractor dealership of TAFE in 1961.
In 1987, his twin sons Mr. Jay V. Shah and Mr. Vijay V. Shah joined him in the family business. In 1995, The Premier Garage acquired the authorized dealership of PAL – Peugeot Ltd. for the franchise of Peugeot cars.
In 1997, on being awarded the dealership for Premier Automobiles Ltd for the franchise of Fiat cars, a new and separate company 'Jay–Vijay Motors Pvt. Ltd.' was established with separate 3S facilities.
In 2008, 'Jay-Vijay Motors Pvt. Ltd.' was awarded Maruti – Suzuki dealership.
Over the years, our dealerships have won various awards for Sales, Spares & After Sales Service from all the parent companies.
In January 2009, the Shah family was awarded the Volkswagen Car Dealership and a new company 'Vidyut Motors Pvt. Ltd' was formed and christened 'Volkswagen Pune'.
Volkswagen Group is Europe's No.1 car maker and is on its way to becoming the World's No.1. They have chosen Pune to be their hometown and have setup their manufacturing plant in Chakan. Pune is therefore strategically very important to Volkswagen. The Shah family is proud to have been awarded the Volkswagen Cars franchise for Pune. Volkswagen Pune also known as Vidyut Motors Pvt. Ltd. started operations in March 2009.
