Tradition but also the symbol of a beginning
The carmaker’s name can also be found on the rear. The rear bumper with a dark line between the reflectors embedded in it accentuates the car’s width, while the headlights above it combine with the reflectors to form the traditional ŠKODA C-shaped light signature. The SLAVIA’s taillights also have an eye-catching two-part design, where the elongated upper part of the light extends into the boot lid.
The model’s name, SLAVIA, references the origins of the ŠKODA company. Its founders, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, began selling bicycles of their own design under this name in 1896, and the name later appeared on the first motorcycles they made. ŠKODA therefore used the SLAVIA name for India not only as a reference to the company’s rich tradition, but also as a symbol of a new beginning in this market.
