The showroom displays the Karoq and Kodiaq models and is equipped with various digital elements for interactive customer engagement. The brand anticipates significant growth in the dynamic Vietnamese market, with sales potentially reaching over 40,000 units annually after 2030. The carmaker also plans to introduce the India-made Kushaq and Slavia models to its Vietnam portfolio soon.

Synergies between Vietnam and India to be leveraged soon

Škoda Auto is already offering Vietnamese customers the Karoq and Kodiaq models imported from the Czech Republic, and the car manufacturer will soon be expanding its portfolio to include two additional models.

This year, the TC Group-owned production line in Quảng Ninh province will be completed, enabling the local assembly of the Kushaq and Slavia models from India. Located in the Viet Hung industrial park near the port of Haiphong, this facility will strategically benefit from sea deliveries from the Parts Expedition Centre in Pune, India.

Given the remarkable growth potential in Vietnam within the ASEAN region, Škoda Auto anticipates an annual sales volume exceeding 40,000 vehicles after 2030. Moreover, the capacities of the Viet Hung Industrial Park could be utilised in the future to further increase production and potentially export Škoda models across the ASEAN region
