In India, the Skoda Rapid has been the choice for the millennials who didn’t like Vento‘s business looks. Its understated elegance has captured the Indian buyer who wanted something other than a Japanese or a Korean.
Which probably explains the 100,000th unit rolled out at VW Group’s production facility in Chakan, Pune. The celebratory flash red vehicle is none other than the Rapid Monte Carlo. The ‘Rapid’ nameplate was resurrected for the Indian subcontinent in 2011, followed by an international version in 2012.
The Rapid continues to offer a compelling combination of the brand’s emotive design, exquisite interiors, leading safety as well as intelligent connectivity features. The production milestone is a testament to its strong equity among discerning customers in a dynamically evolving automotive market like India – Zac Hollis, Director – Sales, Service and Marketing, Skoda Auto India
The Skoda Rapid in India is offered with a choice of 1.6-litre naturally aspirated petrol and 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engines with manual or automatic options.
