In July 2022, Skoda Auto India sold a total of 4,447 units. The Czech auto brand sold 3,080 cars in the same period last year, which is a 44% increase from the previous year. The company also said that its first product for the India 2.0 project, the Kushaq, had been on sale for a year. Follow Stoptechy.
Back in July 2021, Skoda released the Kushaq, a mid-size SUV made for India and made in India. Skoda added new features to the Kushaq to mark the event. The Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Taigun, and Volkswagen Virtus all use the same underpinning based on the brand’s MQB-A0-IN platform.
Zac Hollis, Brand Director of Skoda Auto India, said at the event, “This is usually when big purchases are put on hold because of the rainy season and put off until the holiday season begins. Still, we have done well with our made-for-India cars, the Kushaq and Slavia, which are part of India 2.0. Both the Octavia and the Superb are doing well in their own markets, and the Kodiaq sold out quickly after it came out in January. We plan to keep up this pace, and 2022 will soon be the most important year in our 20-year history in India.
