Skoda Rapid Rider sold out for 2020

The Rapid Rider will be re-introduced in January 2021.

Skoda has removed the Rapid Rider from its official website. It has been reported that the variant is sold out for 2020 and has therefore been temporarily removed from the website. It will be re-introduced in January 2021.

In fact, earlier this year, Zac Hollis, Director - Sales, Marketing & Service, Skoda India, had stated that the Rapid sedan was overbooked for this year and that demand was higher than the production capacity.

The Rider is the entry-level variant of the Rapid. It is equipped with a 2-DIN audio system that has Bluetooth connectivity, automatic climate control, electric ORVMs, dual-front airbags, ABS and rear parking sensors. The car is powered by a 1.0-litre, turbocharged, 3-cylinder petrol engine that produces 108 BHP and 175 Nm. It is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The Skoda Rapid is also available in Rider Plus, Ambition, Onyx, Style, and Monte Carlo variants and gets a 6-speed automatic option as well.
