Skoda will present a world-premier design concept called MissionL at this year’s Frankfurt International Motor Show.
This C-segment sedan is based on the car maker’s new design language, and seems to be a more production-ready version of the Vision D revealed earlier in the year.
When the VisionD hit the motor-show scene in Geneva earlier this year, Skoda described the concept as a preview of its new styling language, delivering a streamlined evolution of its current aesthetic.
“Revealing the look of our new compact model, the MissionL shows exactly the direction our brand is going to take,” Skoda Board Chairman Winfried Vahland said.
According to Skoda board chairman, Dr. H. C. Winfried Vahland, “The world premiere in Frankfurt gives a clear signal that Skoda is going full steam ahead now.
We are going to present a new vehicle every six months over the next two or three years.”
The MissionL is a Golf-sized hatchback that will sit between the Fabia supermini and Octavia small family car. There’s no official word on what Skoda will call the production car. Rumours suggesting the car will be called the Felicia are said to be wide of the mark.
The Czech brand has made it clear that by 2018 it wants to increase its total vehicles sales figure to 1.5 million, and this new model will be a crucial component of that.
