According to media reports, Skoda is working on an India-specific compact SUV, likely to be revealed by 2023. The new SUV will be designed in Europe and will be 95% localized to keep the pricing competitive. The new model is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2023. The car could be followed by the VW group’s compact SUV, sharing the same platform and powertrain. Volkswagen Group plans to work on new models for India under its 2.0 strategy and will focus more on under Rs. 20 lakh segments.
