To start with, coming August Skoda will launch the Laura R S Model which can just be a meagre badging job or a complete engine overhaul. By the end of 2011 or start of 2012 Skoda will launch the Skoda Rapid which goes head on head with its sister VW Vento, being a Skoda the Rapid will be priced lower than the sibling VW.
Early of 2012 Skoda will launch the Fabia Scout which is a taller version of the Fabia and rumours to be equipped with a 4*4 system. Skoda also has plans of revival of their benchmark in Indian the Skoda Octavia which may happen at the end of 2012. Early 2013 Skoda plans to enter the mass market by launching a smaller car which will go head on head with the Brio, i10 and Beat. There is also a sub-4 metre car under the sleeve which will roll in Mid-2013.
