Like the SEAT IBL concept, the Škoda also appears to be based on the VW Jetta platform, sharing its sharp swage line on the flanks and discreet door handles with the Spanish creation.

The Czech branch of the VW Group is claiming its MissionL is close to production-ready and offers a glimpse into the Czech carmaker's new compact model that will launch in Europe, Russia and China in 2012. Deliveries to customers in India will commence late 2011, although that car will be a sedan rather than Europe’s liftback version to suit local preferences.

“This car’s premiere kicks off Škoda's model offensive for the coming years," said Board Chairman Prof Dr hc Winfried Vahland. “This new compact model, along with other new products to follow, will enable us to accomplish our goal of increasing global annual sales to 1.5 million vehicles by 2018. We are going to present a new car approximately every six months over the next few years.”

Eckhard Scholz from Škoda talked about the concept’s design: “We have taken a pure approach to this design study. The car has a strong, sporty look that conveys a beautiful simplicity and a youthful and contemporary appearance. Many people look for clean, minimalistic lines, and the MissionL concept offers that.”

The model offensive will support Škoda’s strong growth aspirations. Sales grew by 18.3 % to 583,600 vehicles over the first eight months of this year. January-August sales in China grew by 29.2% alone (148,862 vehicles). In Russia, sales for the first eight months of the year totaled 43,604 vehicles. During the same period, India sold 18,980 vehicles, representing a growth of 50.4% when compared with the same period of last year.
