› Next step in ŠKODA’s SUV campaign in the brand’s largest single market worldwide
› KAMIQ GT SUV coupé specially tailored to the requirements of Chinese customers
› Many of the KAMIQ GT’s design elements are reminiscent of the emotive VISION GT concept study
Mladá Boleslav / Tianjin, 4 November 2019 – ŠKODA is expanding its SUV family in China: the new ŠKODA KAMIQ GT is the brand’s second SUV coupé and, like the larger ŠKODA KODIAQ GT, is exclusively available in China. ŠKODA now offers a total of five different SUV models in its largest single market worldwide. In addition to the two exclusive SUV coupés, the Chinese version of the KAMIQ city SUV was tailored to the Chinese market. The launch of the KODIAQ marked the beginning of the brand’s SUV campaign in 2017.
“For ŠKODA, China is our most important single market worldwide, and Chinese customers favour SUVs in particular. One in three ŠKODA SUVs is sold in China. By offering five SUV models in China, ŠKODA is catering to a wide range of customer requirements. They all exhibit brand-typical qualities such as generously sized interiors, numerous Simply Clever features and excellent value for money.”
Alain Favey, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Sales and Marketing
The dynamic appearance of the ŠKODA KAMIQ GT, its generous amount of space and practical features have all been tailored to suit lifestyle-oriented, young customers with a focus on the joy of driving, everyday practicality and an emotive design. Advanced connectivity solutions and a modern infotainment system are also part of the standard equipment. The new KAMIQ GT combines the powerful design language of the Chinese KAMIQ city SUV with the sporty elegance of a coupé; many of its design elements are reminiscent of the emotive VISION GT concept study. The lines of the 4,409-mm-long SUV are fresh and expressive, and the result of a collaboration between the designers from SAIC ŠKODA in China and the ŠKODA Design team in the Czech Republic.
“ŠKODA is fully committed to the Chinese market and its customers. Our vision for China is crystal clear: to deliver clever solutions for a better life. We always bring the best to our Chinese customers, which is why we are offering more SUV models here than in any other market,” said Dr. Hanschen. “Furthermore, we are focusing not only on cars, but also new mobility services. The team of our global innovation hub in Beijing – ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab China – is developing mobility solutions and services for China and the world.”
