Czech carmaker Skoda plans to ride on parent Volkswagen’s partnership with Tata Motors for a bigger play in the compact vehicles segment. It is looking to make a comeback into the high-volume small car category, while driving in a mini-SUV and an entry sedan. The vehicles may hit the roads from 2019 and would be a culmination of the joint product strategy with Tata Motors. Skoda may target the mass segment with this new range, sources said. The development stems from Volkswagen’s MoU with Tata Motors that was signed in March this year to explore a strategic alliance opportunity for joint product development. Skoda has been earmarked to lead the project for the Volkswagen brands.
