Skoda India's maintenance programs have now become more desirable than before with the introduction of the brand's new Shield Plus package. Skoda Shield Plus offers a six-year warranty to provide one of the best-in-class ownership experience. The new maintenance initiative was developed under Skoda Auto's 'India 2.0' project.
'India 2.0' is aimed to improve the brand's transparency with its customers and develop a strong pillar of trust. The Czech-origin premium automotive brand is doing decently well on the Indian market with its four products: Rapid, Octavia, Superb and Kodiaq.
Coming back to the attractive Skoda maintenance package, below are the things coming under Shield Plus:
- Skoda Insurance — Includes first year of comprehensive insurance and three subsequent years of third-party coverage.
- Skoda Assist 24x7 Roadside Assistance — Reliable roadside assistance facilities for customers for the fifth and sixth year as well. Skoda Assist can be availed by just a phone call during an unlikely event of a mechanical/electrical failure, flat tyre, weak battery, empty fuel tank, misplaced key, breakdown or an accident.
- Extended Warranty — The warranty period now extends to an additional period of the fifth and sixth year, or 1.5 lakh kilometres; whichever comes earlier from the purchase of the vehicle.
Speaking about the new Skoda Shield Plus maintenance package, Zac Hollis, Director of Sales, Service & Marketing at Skoda Auto India Pvt Ltd shared, "Skoda Shield Plus is a unique offering in the Indian automotive industry. It is designed to ensure owning a Skoda is a hassle-free and an enjoyable experience. It ascertains that 'Peace of Mind comes standard with a Skoda."
In addition to this, the company recently introduced the country's first four-year service care program, dubbed as '4x4x4 Service Care Package'. This consists of a four-year warranty scheme, four-year 24x7 roadside assistance and of course, a four-year service bundle; together at an attractive price.
