Skoda considers the US
Skoda boss Bernhard Maier has said the brand is considering entering the US market.
“The next three markets Skoda will enter are South Korea, Singapore and Iran, but America is the one that we don’t currently compete in with the biggest potential,” he said. “We need to do a feasibility study. If we do decide to compete in the US, we will have one chance to make a good first impression. We feel that if we were there now, the Kodiaq would be a home-run car.”
