Skoda, the Mladá Boleslav-based automaker, has rolled out the 100,000th unit of third-generation Superb from the company plant in Kvasiny on 11th May 2016. Since the model was introduced in 2001, the Czech manufacturer has produced more than 850,000 Superbs and the production capacity at Kvasiny has been expanded and modernised for the production of Skoda’s flagship. The production of the Skoda Superb commenced in Mrach 2015, while it was launched in India on February 23, 2016 in a price range of Rs. 22.83 - 29.36 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi).
“The production of this highly modern car is a testament to the outstanding competence of the Kvasiny plant and its employees,” said Michael Oeljeklaus, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Production and Logistics, adding: “The name Superb represents one of the best and most successful models in the automotive mid-class. This third-generation model will continue the Superb’s success story in the coming months and years.” The third-generation Superb is more powerful and up to 30 percent more economical thanks to the new EU-6 engines.
