Skoda is banking on these numerous choices, along with the promise of a spacious and feature-loaded cabin to make a case for the Slavia despite the falling share of mid-size sedans in the current  Indian car market. Speaking to HT Auto, Zac Hollis, Brand Director at Skoda Auto India, confirmed that the company has received around 5,000 bookings since the reservation window for Slavia was first opened. He also said that the main reason for the mid-size sedan space falling has been that there have been no new products, something Slavia is promising to change. “We expect to sell at least 2,500 to 3,000 units each month in the initial months," he said.
