Skoda Slavia Launch In March 2022
Skoda Auto India has begun serial manufacturing of the Skoda Slavia, the company’s forthcoming small car. The new Slavia is the company’s second vehicle to be built on the company’s localised MQB A0-IN platform, which also underlies the Skoda Kusahq small SUV. It is set to debut in March 2022. The Slavia will be built at Skoda Auto Volkswagen India’s facility in Chakan, Maharashtra, and will be 95 percent locally produced. According to Skoda, the Slavia was designed with the Indian market in mind.

The Slavia is a strong testament of our intent and capability in the Indian market. The Slavia will not only provide a boost to the premium sedan segment but will also showcase Skoda Auto’s expertise, pedigree and legacy with sedans in terms of design, packaging, dynamics, technology and value.”

The former produces 113 horsepower and 175 Nm of peak torque, and it’s paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic torque converter as an option.
