Skoda Auto India stated on Monday that it has got 10,000 reservations for its recently introduced Kushaq SUV in India. Skoda has stated that for an extra 40,000, automatic Style versions would now get six airbags and a Tyre-Pressure Monitoring System.
Kushaq is also topping its monthly sales momentum, according to the Czech carmaker in charge of the Volkswagen group's India 2.0 initiative. The mid-size SUV has aided the automaker in increasing sales in the country.
To increase the allure of the Skoda Kushaq, the carmaker has chosen to equip both the 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre automatic Style models of the SUV with six airbags and TPMS. Despite unusual pressures imposed by the corona virus epidemic and supply problems, Skoda has reached the 10,000 reservations milestone for the Kushaq, according to Zac Hollis, Brand Director, Skoda Auto India. “The Kushaq was made keeping in mind what matters most to customers, and it is a matter of pride for us that the car is finding its way to many Indian homes. 2021 is special for us because we complete two decades of operations in the country. We have been successful in providing an unparalleled value luxury proposition and the launch of Kushaq has really accelerated the ambitions of the Skoda brand in India," he further added.
Skoda is placing a large bet on its new models to boost sales in India. The next-generation Octavia car and Kushaq SUV are among the new vehicles. Kushaq has been attracting buyers' interest and selling like hotcakes since its debut. Skoda India sold 3,829 passenger vehicles in the domestic market in August of this year. Last month, the automaker saw a 282 percent increase in sales compared to the same month a year before, when it sold 1,003 vehicles.
