Skoda on Thursday released two design sketches of its upcoming Kushaq SUV which is all set to make its public debut on March 18. The upcoming production-ready model of the Kushaq draws heavily on the Skoda Vision IN concept car which was officially displayed at the Auto Expo 2020.

The company noted in a press release sent recently, Kushaq will come based on the MQB-A0-IN version of the Volkswagen Group's Modular Transverse Toolkit. The Kushaq is going to be the first of four models from Skoda and Volkswagen brands under the India 2.0 campaign. As per Skoda, the name of its upcoming compact SUV Kushaq is derived from the ancient Indian Sanskrit language- ‘Kushak’ which means king or emperor.
