Skoda unveils luxury car ‘Superb’ at Mumbai auto show


Mumbai: Auto major, Skoda India, today unveiled its luxury car ‘Superb´ at the Autocar Performance Show 2008 here.

Skoda would launch Superb in February 2009 and would announce the price at that time.

Superb was launched in Europe in June.

“Superb was recently launched in all European markets and has received great response. In India, the Superb will be a benchmark in its class in terms of design, safety and value," Skoda India Board Member Thomas Kuehl told reporters here.

Skoda has sold about 16,000 cars in the Indian market this calendar year. “We are growing at 50% above the previous year," Kuehl said.

Kuehl said there is pressure globally, but in India the company is better-placed.

He added that the company is working on the concept of a small car for the Indian market and other developed markets. “The small car will take 3-5-years to come," he said.

It would be in the price range of Rs3-5 lakh, he said.
