No plans to re-launch the Skoda Karoq in India

The Karoq was imported as a Completely Built Unit (CBU).

Zac Hollis, Brand Director, Skoda India, has confirmed that the company has no plans to re-introduce the Karoq in India.

In 2020, Skoda had launched the Karoq in India at a price of Rs. 24.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV was offered with a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbo-petrol engine producing 148 BHP and 250 Nm. The engine was mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Karoq was imported via the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route as part of the 2,500 homologation-free units rule. At one point, the company had even shown interest in getting the Karoq to India as a CKD. However, the focus now is completely on the Kushaq.

Meanwhile, Skoda is gearing up to debut the Karoq facelift for international markets on November 30.
