Skoda Auto India is all set to launch the new generation of the Octavia in the country on June 10, 2021. The company was to launch the car in May this year but the plan was postponed because of the pandemic. We told you back in April that production of the car had already begun at the company’s plant manufacturing facility in Aurangabad, Maharashtra and the first car to roll out of the facility was the top-spec Lauren & Klement variant in the new signature Lava Blue colour.
