Skoda Rapid hatchback in works - Shanghai Motor Show 2013

Skoda Rapid is one easily affordable and most popular model for Skoda lovers. There has been consistent sale of 2,000 units of sedan in India. According to confirmation from senior official at Czech firm, Skoda Rapid hatchback is in works.

The boss of Skoda's Chinese operation, Andreas Hafemann, speaking on the eve of the Shanghai motor show revealed that a "new derivative of the Rapid" was in the works.

Skoda Auto India, the domestic subsidiary of Czech car maker, offers its Fabia premium hatchback in the country, at present. Despite being a well-made product with premium looks, the Skoda Fabia is quickly becoming dated and is witnessing regular fall in sales in the Indian auto market.

Experts believe that the idea of replacing the under performing Fabia looks promising on the cards for Skoda Auto India. However, it must be noted that the Czech car maker has revealed no interest in bringing its Rapid hatchback to the Indian shores. Therefore, the domestic car enthusiasts have no option but to wait and watch the developments regarding the yet-to-be launched Skoda Rapid hatchback.
