Hi,Listeners this is Aditya Singh from howrah,west bengal,India.today i am writing something about skoda and skoda rapid.So i am starting and i hope you will get good idea of skoda after my writing. In 1925, fusion with the Pilsen SKODA Co. was accomplished, marking the end of the Laurin and Klement trademark.Initially, the company was meant to serve the role of the VW Group’s entry brand. Over time, however, the Škoda brand has shifted progressively more upmarket, with most models overlapping with their Volkswagen counterparts on price and features, while eclipsing them on space. Its total global sales reached 1.06 million cars in 2015 and had risen annually by 1.8 percent, profit had risen by 6,5%. In 2015, a corporate strategy was launched to produce an all-electric car by 2020 or 2021 with a range of over 500 kilometres (310 mi), 15-minute charging time, and a cost below comparative combustion-engine vehicles. In early 1930s, the automotive business was again organised as a separate joint-stock company within the ŠKODA Group. After the crisis, the company achieved a breakthrough with the Type ŠKODA Popular.The new design of chassis became the basis for models Popular (845-1,089 cc), Rapid (1165–1766 cc), Favorit (1802–2091 cc) and the Superb (2.5–4 l). While in 1933 Škoda had a 14% share of the Czechoslovak car market and occupied third place behind Praga and Tatra, the new line made it a market leader by 1936, with a 39% share in 1938.n late 1959, the Škoda Felicia, a compact four-cylinder convertible coupe, was imported into the United States for model year 1960. Its retail price was around US$2,700, for which one could purchase a nicely-equipped V8 domestic car that was larger, more comfortable, and had more luxury and convenience features (gasoline retailed for less than 30 cents per gallon, so fuel economy was not of primary importance in America at that time). Those Felicias that made it to American ownership soon experienced a number of reliability problems, further damaging the car's reputation. The Felicia was therefore a poor seller in the States and leftover cars ended up being hied off at a fraction of the original retail list. Since that time, Škoda automobiles have not been imported into the U.S. for retail sale.In 1925 Laurin & Klement was acquired by Škoda Works which itself became state owned during the communist regime. After 1991 it was gradually privatized and in 2000 Škoda became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.

I bought my skoda rapid by november 11 2012.listening good about the car i bought it.my skoda rapid is a diesel ambition manual drive car.its 1486cc and is powered by a engine of 103.8ps.at the first year my car was running good experience of first skoda in my life was also good.i must say its a good car i am driving it though i got some held backs from the car but the car is good and experience is even better.in comparison with honda city and volkswagen vento it has got a very good suspension mileage and features.i tested volkswagen honda and skoda at the same time in 2012 but i got the best from skoda rapid.
