Škoda Auto India Private Limited, more commonly referred to as Škoda Auto India, established November 2001,[1] is a fully owned subsidiary of the Czech automotive manufacturer Škoda Auto and a division of Volkswagen Group Sales India.[2]

According to an official release, Škoda Auto India sold more than 16,000 units in 2008,[2] a 28.5% increase from 2007 sales totals.[2] Furthermore, SAIPL is aiming to become the strategic hub in South and Eastern Asian markets for the Škoda Auto marque, by exporting its locally produced products to Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand.[3] As of April 2009, it has sold over 61,000 units since operations began in November 2001.[1]

HistoryEdit

The Octavia was the first car to be launched in India.[3] Targeted at the Indian premium segment,[3] its handling, fuel efficiency, and low initial price (compared to other products then available in the Indian market)[3] made the Octavia an instant hit with the Indian car user.[4] Its Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel engined version, in particular, delivered a high level of fuel efficiency and (for the Indian market) power and torque, resulting in higher level of driveability when compared to existing products available in the Indian market.

Škoda Auto India Private Limited has its manufacturing plant located at Shendra on the outskirts of Aurangabad which has a annual capacity of 40,000 vehicles.[5] This Aurangabad plant is also shared by Audi India to manufacture the Audi A4 and Audi A6 models.
