The Kamiq, which is being revealed ahead of a second new SUV, the Kodiaq GT coupé, will make a four-strong SUV line-up for Skoda in China (alongside the existing Kodiaq and Karoq) as the Czech car maker aims to double its sales to 600,000 in that market by 2020. Skoda boss Bernhard Maier said the two new models show the company is “very serious about doubling business in China”.
Maier reiterated that he "would love to" bring the Kodiaq GT to Europe in the future, but production capacity means it is not yet possible.
The Kamiq, which was first codenamed Model Q, will sit below the Karoq and is described as a "crossover". It will rival models such as the Hyundai ix25, Citroën C3-XR and Nissan Kicks in China.
