Show Notes

Shortly after Skoda Auto presented its new model for the Indian market, the small Sedan Slavia, the car manufacturer announced another piece of news concerning its “global models”, specifically the next generation of vehicles for the Indian and South American markets, among others. Skoda Auto is taking over global responsibility for the MQB-A0 platform of the Volkswagen Group and will be developing the next generation of this platform, which incorporates the smallest models produced by the Group. This will include the successors of the recently introduced cars for the Indian market, Kushaq and Slavia. What does this mean for Skoda Auto? What is the potential of these “entry models” on global markets? What are the differences between the versions of the models presented on the individual markets? Jiří Dytrych, head of the Small product line at Skoda Auto, will be answering these questions in the newest edition of the Simply Clever podcast.
