The 2021 Skoda Kamiq is about to experience a second delay since the small SUV went on sale locally – this time though, it's due to sales demand.
The company says the Czech factory where the Kamiq is manufactured is unable to keep up with international demand.
But as dealer stock of the Kamiq 85TSI has dwindled, an increasing number of buyers have been choosing the more powerful Kamiq 110TSI Limited Edition.
"This has become the single most popular variant in the Kamiq range and will continue to be made available," a spokesperson for Skoda Australia said.
The brand chose to hold back the Kamiq 110TSI Limited Edition and Monte Carlo variants from the model's initial release last year, due to a software bug which interfered with the car's fuel-saving stop/start function.
Nearly a third of all Skoda vehicles sold locally in 2021 have worn a Kamiq badge, though that is expected to reduce as supply tightens and the Czech brand's new-generation Octavia is unveiled here next month.
