Mladá Boleslav, 20 February 2015: The new ŠKODA Superb is a milestone for the brand. At this year’s Geneva Motor Show (5 to 15 March 2015), the third generation of the model will be celebrating its trade fair premiere – just two weeks after its world premiere in Prague. The brand’s new flagship is the best ŠKODA of all time and features an emotive design, the most room of any vehicle in its segment, and innovative MQB technology from the Volkswagen Group. The car’s market launch is set for mid-2015.
ŠKODA will also be celebrating the world premiere of the sporty ŠKODA Fabia Monte Carlo and the racy ŠKODA Octavia RS 230 powerhouse at Lac Léman. In addition, the manufacturer will be presenting the new ‘Edition’ special model to commemorate 120 years of corporate history this year. ŠKODA is highlighting the brand’s high dynamics through the strength of their appearance at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. In 2014 ŠKODA achieved a new sales record; selling 1.04 million vehicles, the carmaker delivered more than 1 million ŠKODA vehicles to customers for the first time in a single calendar year.
Pure sports emotion – the new ŠKODA Octavia RS 230. ŠKODA’s new special edition will be celebrating its world premiere in Geneva. The automotive powerhouse features a racy design, sporty interior, modern technology and impressive power. The ŠKODA Octavia RS 230 is the first ŠKODA to feature – as series-standard – an electronically controlled differential front axle lock for dynamic cornering. The additional ‘230’ designation relates to the new RS special edition’s horsepower, accelerating the car from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds with its 230hp two-litre petrol engine. The car’s top speed stands at 250 km/h, making the ŠKODA Octavia RS 230 the fastest series-produced Octavia of all time. The Octavia RS special edition’s market launch is set for June 2015.
