The Skoda Karoq has become the millionth SUV of the brand. The jubilee vehicle has got off the assembly line at the Skoda’s factory in Kvasiny.
Skoda has been going to this impressive figure for 9 years. The jubilee crossover found its owner in Spain where it was sent.
The compact Karoq replaced the Yeti (produced since 2009) in the end of last year. This is an independent model, not the Yeti’s new generation, although it takes the Yeti’s position in the brand’s line-up.
The millionth Skoda SUV is equipped with a petrol 1.5-liter 150-hp engine combined with automatics. There are five motors in the model’s range: two petrol ones of 1.0 and 1.5 liters and 115 and 150 hp respectively, as well as three diesel engines of 1.6 and 2.0 liters and 115, 150, 190 hp.
Skoda produces its SUVs in the Czech Republic, China and Russia. Next year an electric all-terrain vehicle is expected, based on the Vision X concept presented in spring at the Geneva Motor Show.
