Skoda Vehicles Now Come With 6-year Warranty

  • Feb 21, 2019

Under the planned scheme ‘India 2.0’, which aims to improve transparency and enhance the ownership experience, the Czech automaker Skoda is all set to strengthen its brand image in the country. The company has brought in a new Skoda Shield Plan that extends the current 4-year warranty of its vehicles to 6 years, or until 1,50,000 kms, whichever strikes first along with other attractive benefits.

Additional benefits come as a part of Skoda Insurance that not only includes comprehensive insurance for the first year but three subsequent years of the third-party insurance. Further, the company is offering 24x7 roadside assistance for the 5th and 6th year. Skoda’s nationwide roadside assistance covers things like flat-weak battery, fuel exhaustion, electrical or mechanical failure, accident, breakdown and mislaid key. On a single phone call, reliable and timely assistance will be provided. The Shield Plan is available across the range, starting with the Rapid, the Octavia, the Superb and the big Kodiaq SUV.

On the other hand, if you wish to buy the previously offered 4-year service package, which includes 4-year 24x7 roadside assistance and 4-year warranty then you are entitled to do so. Skoda is offering it at a discounted price for a trouble-free ownership experience. However, there is a provision for the existing customers under a 4-year warranty plan to upgrade to the new Skoda Shield Plan.

The director of sales, service, and marketing at Skoda India, Zac Hollis said, “ŠKODA Shield Plus is a unique offering in the Indian automotive industry. It is designed to ensure owning a ŠKODA is a hassle-free and an enjoyable experience. It ascertains that ‘Peace of Mind comes standard with a ŠKODA'.”

Besides this, the localization of the MQB A0 platform is also a part of ‘India 2.0’ scheme that will be used on the future Skoda vehicles starting the Skoda SUV, to be launched sometime in 2020. Once launched it will challenge the likes of the Hyundai Creta in the Indian market.
