Recently, the company has removed the feature of auto folding ORVMs due to lack of chips, on which the company’s CEO Jack Hollis said that this decision has been taken due to the shortage of semiconductors. The company has also updated its website and has installed manual ORVMs, due to which the company has also cut down on the cost to keep the price right.
The Skoda Kushaq is getting a discount of Rs 15,000 on the Style variant, the reason being that auto folding mirrors are not being given in it. Due to lack of chip, auto folding mirror is not being provided in Skoda Kushaq, due to which this discount is being given so that you can get this mirror installed in this model later, this discount is available only for 2022 model.
The discount is being offered only on the Style variant of the Skoda Kushaq as there was an increase of Rs 19,000 – Rs 29,000 as of the recent January. There has been no change in the price of the Ambition variant, so except for the Style, you won’t be able to take advantage of any other variant you plan to buy. Currently, all variants of the Kushak are offered with a manually adjustable mirror.
The Skoda Kushaq is offered in a total of 7 variants in three trims – Ambiente, Ambition and Style. This SUV has been made available in two petrol engine options. Engine options include 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre petrol engines. Both the engines are made available with manual, automatic and DSG gearboxes. The company will sell 60,000 cars in India by the end of 2022.
Over 20,000 units of the Kushak SUV have been booked since its launch. Skoda Kushaq was launched in June this year and since then its booking numbers have been increasing. Skoda says this growth is a result of the carmaker’s aggressive expansion of its network, which can be seen especially in South India.
According to the company, the dealer network in South India has grown from 38 touchpoints to 70 touchpoints. This rapid expansion of dealerships in South India has resulted in a 90% increase in sales in the Southern region. Let us tell you that under its India Project 2.0, the company is expanding rapidly in Indian regions. Skoda says that the Kushak SUV is being liked by customers due to its competitive price and superior features in the segment.
The price of Skoda Kushaq SUV has been increased, the company has increased its price from Rs 19,000 to Rs 29,000. The entry-level variant of the Skoda Kushaq is priced at Rs 10.99 lakh and the top variant costs Rs 18.19 lakh. It has been an important model for the company and has been a major contributor to the company’s overall sales.
Skoda Kushaq is getting good response from the customers but probably the company has discontinued its 2-airbag variant due to lack of chip. Now it has to be seen whether the company brings it back or not.
