Skoda Auto India celebrated the last quarter of 2022 with an international congregation in the picturesque backdrop of the Himalayas in Dehradun. The peak-to-peak drive showcased the achievements of the company and its India-made products to a large.
Skoda Auto India also commemorated the full 5-star crash safety ratings for the Kushaq at the recently-conducted GNCAP crash tests.
Petr Solc, Brand Director, Skoda Auto India said, “Usually, we call the world to our Mladá Boleslav headquarters and showcase our products. It gives me great pleasure and pride to invite the world to India to showcase our India-developed and India-made products, which have proven themselves on the world stage. It was an incredible few days for all of us at Skoda Auto India India, interacting with experts from India and the world. Our India 2.0 heroes were in their element in the beautiful foothills of the Himalayas. The year 2022 has been a remarkable one for us. With the response we have received, we are confident of carrying forward this momentum into 2023, and beyond.”
The congregation saw auto enthusiasts from India, Germany, Slovakia, Ireland, Belgium, France, Austria, and the Czech Republic.
