Skoda is plastering over the cracks in its range with this new concept unveiled at Frankfurt. It's called the MissionL and will slot inbetween the Fabia and Octavia. And the show car is said to be extremely close to the final design.
Taking inspiration from the slightly larger VisionD concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the MissionL combines crisp clean styling with a half-saloon, half-hatchback bodystyle that's described by Skoda as a 'compact liftback'.
According to Skoda board chairman, Dr. H. C. Winfried Vahland, "The world premiere in Frankfurt gives a clear signal that Skoda is going full steam ahead now. We are going to present a new vehicle every six months over the next two or three years.”
The Czech brand has made it clear that by 2018 it wants to increase its total vehicles sales figure to 1.5 million, and this new model will be a crucial component of that. We'll have all the details when Skoda launches its new concept to the world next week.
