This week at its Annual Press Conference, Skoda has announced the plans for 2021. One of the news is the introduction of the next-generation Fabia in May 2021.
Surprisingly, a more practical subcompact estate won’t shortly join the supermini. The Skoda Fabia Combi (pictured) is set to arrive in 2023.
The company’s plan includes production of the Fabia estate in 2 years from now at the Kvasiny plant (Czech Republic), after the production of the next-gen Superb moves to VW’s facility in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The Bratislava factory will be also a production site for the new Volkswagen Passat estate. Both related models (Skoda Superb and VW Passat) will be developed in Mladá Boleslav (CZ).
Interestingly, the next Fabia won’t be involved in Skoda’s ‘Napoleonic’ electrification plans. The company is not going to electrify the model, even in a mild-hybrid variant.
