But you'll be able to redeem the Fabia after five years.
We know that our Gujarati brothers are great businessmen but this is a slightly odd scheme, isn't it? A car for free, and that too a premium hatchback? Well that's what the report says. According to The Times Of India, a Skoda dealer in Gujarati is running a scheme under which if you buy a Skoda Rapid today, you'll get a base variant of the Fabia for free, but after five years from the date of purchase of the Rapid. If you buy a petrol engined Rapid, the Fabia you'll get after five years will be petrol engined too, and diesel in case the Rapid you buy is a diesel.
The dealer, called Torque Auto does have a very tempting offer but five years is a long time. And Fabia will go through a number of revisions in this period, and what if there's an entirely new product, in place of the Fabia? Rest assured, the agreement that the dealer signs with the customer states that the dealer will either provide the model that replaces Fabia or pay Rs 3-5 lakh, in case there's no replacement available.
The offer was introduced on February 26 and since then there has been a rise in sales. The report says that the dealer has sold 600 cars since then. Well why won't it, it's after all a very sweet deal!
