ŠKODA SLAVIA: THE
NEW SEDAN FOR INDIA:
THE SECOND PRODUCTION MODEL AFTER THE
KUSHAQ FROM THE INDIA 2.0 PROJECT WILL BE
KNOWN AS THE SLAVIA.
The new saloon for the A0 segment was named with
the earliest days of ŠKODA AUTO in mind. Starting in
1896, one year after the founding of the company,
Václav Laurin and Václav Klement successfully
marketed their first, jointly developed bicycles under the SLAVIA name. The new ŠKODA SLAVIA will once again
set out to define a new era, this time on the Indian market. There, the notchback model, which is due to be
presented later this year, will complement the OCTAVIA and SUPERB saloons, which are highly regarded in India.
FROM ML. BOLESLAV
In 1972, the International Automobile Federation
(FIA) merged the B5 and B6 classes into the B5
class for vehicles with a maximum engine capacity
of 3,000 cm3. In the Czechoslovak championship,
the engine capacity limit was changed to 2,000
cm3, which prompted the then state-owned
company AZNP (nowadays ŠKODA) to start
developing an open two-seater for circuit and hill
climb racing. ŠKODA SPIDER B5 and ŠKODA
SPIDER II prototypes were among the fastest and
most exotic cars on racetracks in second half of
1970s in Czechoslovakia. The ŚKODA SPIDER B5
is now one of the ŠKODA Museum’s most
valuable exhibits, and the ŠKODA SPIDER II is
currently undergoing extensive restoration.
