Å koda NZ says no to GST price rises on new vehicles

Å koda continues to do things a little bit different in the New Zealand market by announcing that its recommended retail prices will remain unchanged following today’s GST increase.

For a GST registered customer, the price of all Å koda models will effectively be reduced by 2.2%. This defiant attitude means Å koda’s prices will be even more attractive to private buyers when measured against competing models that will likely see RRPs rise due to the increase in GST.

Å koda has also implemented a Variable Service Intervals system on all its models. Under this system, the car will let the driver know when a service is due based on how the vehicle has been driven. Open road driving will see service intervals stretch out to as much as 30,000km or 24 months — for both petrol and diesel models. A car doing all short trips will require a service closer to the 15,000km or 12 month intervals previously specified.

James Yates, General Manager of Å koda New Zealand says: ‘We’re determined to offer our customers value for money. Easing the burden of the GST increase and keeping servicing costs down are just two ways of doing that.’
