Skoda Begins Production of its New Citigo Mini

's an important day for Skoda as the VW Group brand began series production of its brand-new Citigo small car at its facility in Bratislava, Slovakia, on Friday. The Citigo is a sister model to the VW Up! and the Seat Mii and it will play a crucial role in driving up the Czech manufacturer's global sales.

“The Citigo is a central component of our growth strategy,” said the Chairman of the Board of Skoda, Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland.
“With this automobile, we are starting our model offensive in Europe. It opens up the important small car market for Škoda and perfectly applies our values in the shape of a city car. Citigo is compact yet spacious, economical yet agile, attractive and equipped with many innovative ideas. This car is ‘city clever’,” he added.
The Citigo will launch as a three-door model in Skoda's home market of the Czech Republic at the end of this year, with a pan-European roll-out will follow next summer. Skoda will also present a five door variant in early 2012.
The tiny hatchback has an overall length of 3.56 metres, a width of 1.65 metres and a height of 1.48 metres, with engine options including two 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol units, delivering 60 and 75bhp.
