Although it will be too early to predict at this stage which vehicles will be introduced in Pakistan as Skoda has a diverse portfolio including vehicles such as sedans, hatchbacks, station wagons and SUVs. However across the border, Skoda sells Octavia, Superb and Rapid sedans in Indian market and does reasonably well as far as the sales are concerned. Furthermore, in near future Skoda is reportedly in process of introducing Kamiq, Kodiaq and Kushaq SUVs in India as well.

Skoda won’t be the only European player to tap Pakistani market, as Lucky Motors is already in works to launch Peugeot cars while Volkswagen’s plant is already under construction that will see local production of VW commercial vehicles in out country. The entry of Skoda will surely give buyers a much needed variety in addition to opting from the existing Japanese, Korean and Chinese options.
