Skoda was the first brand from the Volkswagen group to enter the Indian market in 2001 with the Octavia model that quickly established the brand in India.
Its success in India paved the way for other VW group brands' India entry.
The company has a manufacturing plant near Aurangabad in Maharashtra which also today manufactures cars for the other group brands.
Skoda had on sale its Fabia hatchback but that was discontinued due to low sales. The Czech brand today contests only in the sedan and SUV spaces.
Skoda is a Czech brand founded in 1895 as Laurin & Klement, which went on to become Skoda Works and in 2000 Skoda eventually became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.
The Skoda brand was to be the entry brand for the Volkswagen group but over time Skoda has managed to contest higher spaces and today competes with VW’s own brand in many markets.
