Special Edition Skoda Yeti Sochi showcased at Moscow Motor Show
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Russia is a very important market for Skoda products. By the year 2018, Skoda is hoping to sell at least 1.5 million cars a year and Russia is an important growth market for achieving those figures. The Volkswagen Group is lobbying the government to bring Russian fuel and emissions standards in line with the rest of Europe.
