Skoda Kodiaq Bookings Re-Open, Deliveries in 1st Quarter 2023

Skoda has opened the bookings for the Kodiaq today. Skoda had earlier launched the facelifted Kodiaq 7 seat luxury SUV this year, but had to stop taking bookings after the entire year’s production of 1,000-1,200 units were booked in just days after its launch. Now with reopening the bookings for the facelifted Kodiaq, Skoda plans to start deliveries for them starting first quarter of 2023.
