  • The export program commenced back in 2011 with the VW Vento.

  • Kushaq becomes the third made-in-India export model based on the MQB-A0-IN platform.

  • First shipment is headed towards the Arab Gulf Cooperation Council (AGCC) countries.

  • Skoda recorded a 17% year-on-year sales growth compared to September 2021.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Skoda commenced the production of the left-hand drive Kushaq for exports to markets abroad. And it looks like the marque has already completed the first batch as a shipment is on its way to the Arab Gulf Cooperation Council (AGCC) countries. 

With the first batch shipped, the Kushaq becomes the first made-in-India Skoda and the third model based on the SAVWIPL group’s (SKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Private Limited) MQB-A0-IN platform to be exported from the country. It joins the VW Virtus and Taigun SUV as made-in-India exports, the latter being the first exported model of the lot.

Skoda is on a road to renaissance, thanks to the India 2.0 project and MQB-A0-In platform, under which the brand has launched India-specific models – Kushaq and Slavia – which have undoubtedly been the driving force behind its sales.
