Back in the 1930s, Type 901 was dubbed the Rapid by Skoda. The second time Skoda used the Rapid name was for the rear engine Rapid Coupe in the 1980s. The name Rapid was used in the 21st century when Skoda India introduced the C-segment sedan in India. Ever since its debut in the Indan market, Skoda has sold over a lakh units of the Rapid sedan.
