Skoda Citigo production begins

Production of Skoda’s baby Citigo has begun in Bratislava today. The Volkswagen up!-based model will hit dealerships in Skoda’s home, the Czech Republic, before the end of 2011, with other parts of Europe receiving it by next summer. Initially offered in three-door form, a five-door version will follow in 2012. At the moment just two versions of a new three-cylinder 1.0 L petrol engine will be available in 44 kW/60 hp and 55 kW/75 hp guises, with a 68 hp natural gas model in the pipeline.

“The Citigo is a central component of our growth strategy. With this automobile, we are starting our model offensive in Europe. It opens the important small car market for ŠKODA and perfectly applies our values in a city car,” said Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland, Chairman of the Board of Škoda.
