Between 2001 and 2010, Skoda sold almost 45,000 first-gen Octavias to a growing Indian market, and much is expected of this bigger, more economical and luxurious model. A number of ranking company officials were present at the Aurangbad factory where it's produced.
“The new Skoda Octavia is now being produced at purpose-built facilities in one of the international growth markets. By far our most important model in the Indian market is also an engine of growth for Skoda,” says Skoda CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland.
“The new Octavia is a great car with a timeless and elegant design with the more space than the competition, high functionality, paired with better quality and excellent value for money that meets the needs of Indian customers perfectly: lots of space, modern design, excellent quality and advanced technology at an affordable price,” says Werner Eichhorn, Skoda Board Member for Sales and Marketing, also present at the event.
