SKODA India leads the VAG group for vision India - products lined up for 2020 and beyond.
Skoda has set itself an ambitious vision of 5% from its current share of less than 1% of the Indian market by 2025.
Will build cars on the localized MQB A0 Platform , thus making it in architecture like the global models and could be exported to designated countries as needed.
We believe that a localized MQB A0 platform as an optimal solution for us to break even our operation within an acceptable time-frame
Here are the products on the anvil:
1. The first models to be built on the Eco platform are due in 2020, with the initial one likely to be a five-seat, mid-size SUV
to rival the Creta.
2.The next model is likely to be a mid-size sedan that could replace the VW Vento and Skoda Rapid
- VW Virtus?
3. Skoda will finally get into the hatchback segment
it had vacated since it discontinued the Fabia in 2013. However, this won’t happen till 2022
by which time VW will finally replace the Polo in India as well, but not before skipping the current generation (in Europe) altogether
The first phase of the product plan, VW and Skoda are expected to get three all-new models each. An SUV, a mid-size sedan and a premium hatchback.
For petrol expect the 1.0L TSI to be the chosen one, the diesel could be the toned down version of VW’s EA288 2.0-litre diesel. link
