Skoda Auto is all set to present the core elements of its new Next Level - Skoda Strategy 2030. It is going to a 30-minute press conference in Prague on 24th June, 2021. It will be broadcast live on a dedicated website and the Skoda storyboard. Furthermore, the event can also be watched on the official Twitter channel - @Skodaautonews, on Skoda Auto CEO Thomas Schafer’s Linkedin profile, and on Youtube.
In the 30-minute event, the Skoda CEO Thomas Schafer will discuss in detail about the brand’s priorities for the future in the areas of electrification, internationalization, and digitization. All these points are going to help to set the guidelines for the company’s development over the coming years. Once the press conference is over, there will be a 30-minute ask question round for all the journalists and media representatives.
Besides these, Skoda Auto is all set to launch the all-new Kushaq on June 28, 2021. The SUV will be offered with two turbo petrol engines. The deliveries for Kushaq 1.0-litre variant will begin by July 12. While the more powerful Kushaq 1.5-litre will be handed to the customers by August 4, 2021. The SUV is going to be based on the India-specific MQB-AO-IN platform. Skoda is likely to offer the Kushaq in a total of three trims namely Active, Ambient, and Style. However, there are speculations that the rang-topping Monte Carlo trim will be introduced later on. Once launched, Kushaq will rival the likes of Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, MG Hector, Kia Seltos, and Tata Harrier. Moving on, we can expect it to fall in the price range of Rs 10 lakhs - Rs 16 lakhs (ex-showroom).
