World Environment Day was celebrated on June 5, 2015. To reach out to its customers in a clean way, Skoda Auto India set in motion “Free Pollution Check” service. This free of cost service will be conducted in association with Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). This service will be done by all authorised Skoda dealers across India. According to the carmaker, the primary aim and hope of this green campaign is to educate its customers about environmental sustainability.
This free service by Skoda Auto India will check for harmful emissions.
As a part of this service, Skoda Auto India will use special equipment that can check for emissions. Skoda will also perform an engine clean up if needed and check for its proper, efficient performance. Those taking their cars to the dealership will be accompanied by a technical personnel. Also, as a kind gesture to the environment, Skoda will offer its customers a chance to plant saplings for free. Ajay Shinde, Head – After Sales, Skoda Auto India said, “ŠKODA India is very pleased to partner with SIAM in such a worthy initiative contributing to the conservation of the environment. It is our company’s ethos to care for the environment as much as we care for our customers. The campaign reinforces the brand’s commitment and efforts towards environmental sustainability.”
All new Skoda cars are built to conform to various emission regulations.
Skoda Auto India says, “This campaign is in line with ŠKODA Auto’s commitment towards environmental protection. ŠKODA’s product fleet conforms to the strictest emission norms and always aims to develop and produce environment friendly products laying emphasis on using recyclable materials.” The carmaker currently sells the Skoda Superb, Skoda Octavia, Skoda Yeti and Skoda Rapid in India. The company has 74 sales and service outlets throughout the country. If you own a Skoda vehicle, make sure it isn’t belching out black smoke from the tailpipes. That isn’t eco-friendly and against this campaign.
