The Skoda MissionL Concept has been revealed in full. It is Skoda’s Frankfurt 2011 debutant and previews a new production compact sedan that is set to slot in between the Fabia and the Octavia, essentially making it somewhat the Czech brand’s take on the Volkswagen Polo Sedan.
“This premiere kicks off Skoda’s model offensive for the coming years. This new compact model, along with other new products to follow, will enable us to accomplish our goal of increasing global annual sales to 1.5 million vehicles by 2018. We are going to present a new car approximately every six months over the next few years,” says Skoda board chairman Prof Dr h.c. Winfried Vahland.
“We have taken a very pure approach to this design study – we have structured the surfaces simply, but impressively. The car has a strong, sporty look which conveys a beautiful simplicity and a youthful and contemporary appearance. Many people look for clean, minimalistic lines, and the MissionL concept offers all that,” says Skoda Board of Directors Member for Technological Development Eckhard Scholzabout.
The production version of this new compact sedan will commence delivery to Indian customers in late 2011, and it will subsequently be launched in Europe, Russia and China in 2012.
