Skoda analyzes the feasibility of launching new models RS

Skoda Octavia RS

The Skoda Octavia is the only model of the range of Skoda that he is still in a variant, RS.

Is something that we have already commented on more than one occasion. It is a time of expansion for Skoda. The Czech brand at a key moment for the immediate future. And proof of this is that they are preparing a landing in the iranian market and south Korean for the next year 2017, while also continue to discuss the possibility of returning to the united States after more than 50 years of absence.

however, Skoda does not work only on increasing the number of countries where they are present, but in its product strategy. And in particular, in the range of RS. Bernhard Maier, CEO of Skoda, has revealed to a british that are analyzing the economic viability that would have the releasing to the market new variants RS for any of their models that currently lack it.

Maier seeks to establish where the limit of the brand to grow its family of RS models as long as it remains economic profitability. It is logical that they have to justify the cost of developing a variant of high performance and sporting character, as could be the Skoda Octavia RS, the only model that currently made up the family of RS models Skoda.

To date, Skoda has focused its efforts in further extending the endings “Monte Carlo” or “Laurent & Klement” to the models of its range. And though they have left aside the variants labeled as “vRS”, have continued offering different packages of sporty style with which you keep your customers happy who are looking for a plus of dynamism to configure your Skoda.

“Theoretically, there is no barrier to create any type of variant, but it is all a question of demand. We have had a wonderful experience by improving the amenities and finishes of our models, so I hope we will offer more options emotional with the aim of leaving behind the smaller number of customers.”

As we have said previously, the only model that has a variant RS is the Skoda Octavia. With the launch of the Skoda Kodiaq has opened the debate on the possibility that it is the next to get a variant of this nature. Although nor can we leave behind the idea of seeing a Skoda Superb RS. However, all you can read about it in the network, they are mere reports that lack of official status. In any case, and as pointed out Bernhard Maier, everything will depend on the demand that you have this type models.
