Skoda ramping up production of the Slavia 1.5L TSI

The waiting period for the Slavia 1.5L TSI variants is expected to come down to 2 months.

At present, the 1.5L TSI variants of the Skoda Slavia have a waiting period of 4 months. However, this is likely to come down as the carmaker is ramping up production of these variants.

According to Zac Hollis, Director, Sales and Marketing, Skoda India, the company is looking to bring the production of the Slavia 1.5L TSI on par with the 1.0L variants. The latter currently has a waiting period of 2 months.

Hollis has also confirmed that the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict and the global chip shortage have had an adverse effect on the availability of certain components used in the 1.5L engine. He expects parts supply to improve from May.

Top variants of the Slavia are offered with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine that makes 148 BHP and 250 Nm. The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.
