Milton Keynes, 12 February 2016 - This is why the car manufacturer is surprising and rewarding its customers up and down the country this Valentine’s Day.
To celebrate the romance ŠKODA owners have with their beloved cars, early on Sunday 14th February, a team of ŠKODA cupids will make their way across six UK cities, placing special red roses on the windscreens of much-loved ŠKODAs that take their fancy.
The roses will be attached to a love note telling of their special reward. Whether it’s a brand new Superb, a faithful Fabia or a pre-loved Octavia, any ŠKODA owner could be adored enough to receive a £50 gift towards a tank of fuel.
ŠKODA owners are encouraged to keep their cars out of their garages overnight, so they don’t miss out.
The activity supports the ŠKODA Octavia ‘Loved, not owned’ campaign, showing on TV now.
ŠKODA UK has launched its first online showroom. Customers can access the ŠKODA Live Tour on their computer, tablet or smartphone – and gain the showroom experience at a time and place that suits them. ŠKODA Live Tour instantly connects the customer to a ŠKODA Product Host by an internet video link, who takes them into the Live Tour showroom and introduces the ŠKODA models.
ŠKODA’s new compact SUV is called the KAROQ. The name and its spelling originate from the language of the Alutiiq, an indigenous tribe who live on an island off the southern coast of Alaska. For the name of the new compact SUV, ŠKODA has drawn on the spelling of the ŠKODA KODIAQ and in doing so, has created a consistent nomenclature for the brand’s current and future SUV models. The ŠKODA KAROQ will be introduced to the public for the first time in Stockholm on 18 May and represents a further milestone in ŠKODA’s SUV campaign.
ŠKODA's appearance at the Shanghai Motor Show 2017 (19 – 28 April) is characterized by electric change: With the Vision E study, the company provides its first brand-specific outlook on the future of individual mobility. The emotionally designed five-door SUV coupé can travel up to 500 kilometres on purely electric power and meets the level 3 requirements for autonomous driving. ŠKODA is intensively pursuing the electrification of its model range, and will be offering five purely electric models in various segments by 2025.
ŠKODA DESIGN emphasises its commitment to a distinct design identity with continuous development of its design language. Harmonious proportions, clean-cut lines, bold contours and crystalline features are combined to create a design that places a focus on precision and clarity. One of the sources of inspiration for ŠKODA's designers is Czech crystal glass art, which is characterised by outstanding craftsmanship. This yields an expressive, emotionally charged design which harmoniously combines aesthetics and functionality.
