Skoda Superb discontinued in India; delisted from website

Reports suggest that Skoda could launch the next-gen Superb in India later this year.

The Skoda Octavia was discontinued from the Indian market in April this year. Now, another premium sedan has faced the axe. The carmaker has just delisted the Superb from its official website, indicating that the model is no longer on sale.

In India, the Octavia and Superb were offered with the EA888 evo3 powertrain, which did not comply with the latest BS6 Phase 2 emission norms. Skoda found that replacing it with the evo4 powertrain was not feasible and hence decided to pull the plug.

Skoda does plan to introduce the next-gen Superb in India, though. It is likely to be launched later this year and could be assembled locally. Reports also suggest that the premium sedan could get strong-hybrid powertrains.

The Octavia is also expected to make a comeback in an updated avatar and an RDE-compliant engine.
