Rs 20k discount on Skoda Kushaq sans auto-folding ORVM

Auto-folding ORVMs have been deleted from the Taigun as well. However, it's unclear if VW is also offering a similar discount.

Earlier this month, we had reported that the Skoda Kushaq was no longer offered with auto-folding ORVMs due to the ongoing chip shortage. It seems Skoda has received some flak for this move and is now offering a discount of Rs 20,000 on these cars.

According to a Facebook group, a Skoda dealership is offering the discount on MY2022 Kushaq models. After 4-6 months, the company is likely to provide auto-folding ORVMs as an accessory for Rs 20,000. The feature is also expected to be reintroduced on the Kushaq once chip supplies are sorted.

Besides the Kushaq, its sister car, the VW Taigun has also been affected by the chip shortage. VW has deleted auto-folding ORVMs from the line-up, however, it's unclear if a discount is available on the Taigun as well.
