This might come as a blow to some of our long time readers. We know you love your Fabia, but it seems Skoda has decided its time to let this aging little car go. The Fabia has been subject to a number of price cuts since 2008 the cumulative total being nearly 40% which has led Skoda to incur losses to the tune of Rs. 1.5 Lakh per car. Skoda India has finally decided to pull the plug on the Fabia in India.
Skoda might put any relaunch plans on hold until their next generation Fabia codenamed SK260 has been launched in the international markets. Skoda is said to be now concentrating on the launch of the next generation Octavia.
“We can re-deploy our resources from the unprofitable Fabia towards brand building for our other products and dealer network expansion” said a company official reports AutoCar India.
