Brand wants to focus on volume segments to grow sales in accordance with the VW Group strategy and not bring concepts such as the Fabia RS 2000 to production.

Skoda will not build a low-cost sports model such as the Fabia RS 2000 design concept which the brand brought to the 2011 GTI-Wörthersee event.

The brand's chief technology officer says he wants to focus on volume segments to grow sales in accordance with the VW Group.

Eckard Scholz told Autocar, "This is not the next step for us [building a sports car]. We want to be going into volume segments."

He says Skoda will reach its goal of doubling sales to 1.5 million units per year by 2018 by "doing the big segments and concentrating on the right things."

Hot variants will stay within the concept realm for the time being with Skoda building a vRS verison of the MissionL concept as well as a sport variant of the VisionD concept.
