Skoda’s management has decided to abandon the development of a new generation Fabia model in a station wagon, which should have been assembled from 2023. The portal Auto.cz reports this with reference to the Czech agency CTK.
Skoda is working on a new generation of Fabia. To date, the specs, debut date and pricing of the new Fabia are shrouded in mystery, as the compact hatchback has so far been seen exclusively disguised as a Volkswagen Polo. However, it is technically quite obvious what to expect from him, since he shares the core with the already mentioned Volkswagen.
One of the most important uncertainties was whether the Fabia Combi would return. And if at the end of last year, Skoda CEO Thomas Schaefer confirmed on his LinkedIn page that this will indeed happen, then the day before a letter was published with information about the refusal of the new Fabia Combi, which was sent to the staff of the plant in the city of Kvasiny, where they intended to establish assembly of new items. This decision by the Skoda leadership is due to the desire to quickly focus on the development of electric vehicles due to the tightening of economic regulations – the document adopted by the EU leadership should enter into force in 2026.
In this regard, Skoda is forced to abandon some future models with classic internal combustion engines. The decision is also due to the decline in popularity of compact B-segment station wagons, which are inferior in popularity to hatchbacks and crossovers.
Serial production of the new generation Skoda Fabia hatchbacks began in mid-summer 2021. The engine range of the novelty consists of two 1.0-liter naturally aspirated three-cylinder gasoline engines with a return of 65 and 80 hp. Also, the car is available with a pair of supercharged engines of the same volume, giving out 95 and 110 hp. power. Top modifications Fabia received a 1.5-liter “turbo four”, which produces 150 hp
