The head of Skoda spoke about the new Fabia
The premiere of the Skoda Fabia compact hatchback will take place next year, but the station wagon model will not appear until 2023.
In 2021, Skoda will launch the next-generation Fabia compact model, which in the first year of sales will only be available with a hatchback body, and the station wagon will appear no earlier than 2023. The head of the Czech brand, Thomas Schaefer, spoke about this in an interview with the German edition of Auto Motor und Sport.
The new Skoda Fabia hatchback will be sold in parallel with the previous generation station wagon, which will stay on the assembly line until the end of 2022, until it is replaced by a new generation car in a five-door body.
The next Skoda Fabia will be built on the MQB-A0 platform already used on the new Volkswagen Polo, Seat Ibiza and Audi A1. Like other new cars from the Czech brand, the fourth Fabia will be larger than its predecessor and will receive a more spacious interior.
The engine range will be represented by three-cylinder atmospheric and turbocharged engines, which, depending on the modification, will work with a manual transmission or with a automatic transmission with two clutches.
Plus, next year will be the premiere of the electric crossover Enyaq GT, which was seen during road tests in October this year. The car will be available with power units from 150 to 310 hp and battery packs of various capacities, which will allow you to drive from 340 to 500 kilometers without recharging.
Schaefer also said that Skoda will launch the next-generation Citigo compact city car by 2023, which will compete with the new Toyota Aygo. Finally, Skoda is developing a large second-generation Kodiaq crossover.
