The semiconductor shortage is still affecting the car production lines. Instead of further delay, the Skoda Kushaq Ambition variant has simply dumped the climate control feature.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and semiconductor chip shortage, most car companies are running behind on their delivery schedules and suffering the shortage. Most of the popular car models currently have long waiting periods for delivery. Some of the brands have simply chosen to cut back on certain features to keep the production lines going. Skoda is the latest to take this measure. The new Skoda Kushaq Ambition variant is shipping without the automatic climate control feature.
