Tour de France: ŠKODA KAROQ inspires the masses7/3/2017

Thousands of viewers witnessed debut of ŠKODA KAROQ at the start of Tour de France in Düsseldorf. New compact SUV starts as service vehicle at the world’s most famous cycling race.

Tens of thousands watched the Grand Départ of the Tour de France on Saturday. The ŠKODA KODIAQ as a service car accompanied three cycling teams: ‘Team Dimension Data’ from South Africa, ‘Team Lotto NL – Jumbo’ from the Netherlands and ‘Lotto Soudal’ from Belgium in the 14-kilometre time trial and for the first time made its public appearance.

The first stage of this year´s Tour - the time trial - took the cyclists from Düsseldorf Messe along the Rhine to the famous Königsallee and back to the Messe. It was a premiere for Düsseldorf – after 30 years the Tour de France started again in Germany – and for the ŠKODA KAROQ, as it is making its first public appearance ahead of the market launch at the end of this year.
