The Czech based automaker Skoda will be producing a brand new model at the Kvasiny plant, in the Czech Republic, as the company has recently announced.
Skoda is putting an end to recent reports about a new model and it’s announcing that such a vehicle will be put into production at the Kvasiny plant, on its local auto market. The announcement has been made by the Skoda CEO, Winfried Vahland.
“The decision to produce a new vehicle at Kvasiny will strengthen the location. This will ensure the long-term prosperity of Kvasiny, as well as Mladá Boleslav and Vrchlabí”, said the Skoda official.
Winfried Vahland has made this announcement during a visit to the Volkswagen headquarters in Wolfsburg, with the occasion of the 23rd anniversary since Skoda was acquired by the Volkswagen Group. The brand new model which will be produced in the Kvasiny plant remains a mystery for the moment but chances are this will be the much awaited SUV, which might be named the Snowman. The model in question will probably be based on the Volkswagen Tiguan but it will grow in size, compared to its German cousin, in order to make room for the third row of seats. The Snowman will eventually replace the Yeti, even if it will be slightly larger than it.
