Skoda is soon expected to launch a new sedan, a new electric car and a couple of SUVs in the Indian market
After a successful India 2.0 program, Skoda India is now all set to soon launch as many as five new cars in the country for buyers looking for premium and powerful cars. From what we know so far, Skoda will soon be launching as many as five new cars in the country as part of their India 2.5 campaign and here is everything you should know about the upcoming Skoda cars in India.
Skoda is likely to expand its portfolio in the country with the launch of the new Skoda Superb, Skoda Enyaq EV and the Skoda Octavia RS iV. Unlike before, the Skoda Superb and the new Octavia RS iV will not be manufactured in Indian and will be brought into the country via the CKD (completely knocked down) or CBU (completely built unit) route.
The brand however is yet to comment on the total allocation of these sedans for the Indian market while it is also believed to increase the total number of units of the Kodiaq SUV being brought into the country next year.
Moving on, the Czech carmaker is also expected to soon launch the updated version of the Slavia and the Kushaq SUV in the country soon. Both these cars were launched in the country as part of the India 2.0 program and attract buyers with their feature-rich cabin and powerful powertrain options.
The Skoda Slavia takes on the rivals like the Hyundai Verna and the Honda City while the Skoda Kushaq, on the other hand, locks horns with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Grand Vitara, and the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder.
Skoda is also said to be working on a new compact to take on the rivals like the Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, and the Mahindra XUV300. This new SUV is likely to be based on the MQB AO IN platform and will be powered by the 1.0L TSI motor that is also offered with the Slavia and the Kushaq in India. More details will soon be shared by the brand ahead of the launch late next year.
