We look forward to engaging with passionate Indian minds and this is a great opportunity for imaginative expression. We have already launched the first mid-size SUV, ŠKODA KUSHAQ, which is a testament to our commitment to the Indian market. KUSHAQ was designed in close collaboration between our teams in the headquarters and India, and the upcoming mid-size premium sedan follows this practice. The camouflage contest is a great way to kick-off activities for the second global reveal planned by us this year.”
