Only three days back, we had reported that the new sedan from Skoda will be named Lauretta. Skoda has now said that this upcoming C-segment sedan will resemble the Mission L Concept which is to be unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show next week.
Toyota Kirloskar Motors (TKM) is planning to launch the diesel version of the Etios sedan and Etios Liva small car on September 9th 2011. Toyota launched the Etios petrol in December 2010 and the diesel version was being expected ever since.
Skoda Auto India has a slew of launches lined up for India that will include the Laura RS sedan, the Scout station-wagon, a less expensive Yeti SUV, a sub-Fabia small car (in the Rs. 3 -5 lakh range) and the Rapid sedan (based on the VW Vento). A recent report in a publication says that Skoda may brand the new small car "Youngster."
Czech Republic based car manufacturer Skoda will launch a sedan based on the Volkswagen Vento in India around October 2011. The company will name the upcoming sedan ‘Rapid’ and could price it at roughly Rs. 7 lakh for the base petrol version and Rs. 7.80 lakh for the base diesel version.
