The Skoda brand is on the rise with new SUV models helping to turbocharge the already popular Czech car brand.
The latest sales/production data received from Skoda shows the brand is on track for a record sales year in 2017 after the brand passed the one million vehicles produced milestone in record time this year.
Passing the one million vehicles total marks the fourth year in a row that the number of vehicles built by Skoda in a calendar year will finish in seven figures.
Skoda’s global production boss Michael Oeleklaus tells us that while the Octavia, Fabia and Superb have all been popular again this year it’s the new member of the club, KODIAQ (reviewed here) which really sped things up.
“Reaching the mark of one million cars produced is an important milestone for us this year,”
“This number, which has now already been reached, underlines the performance of our production sites as well as the expertise of our team.
“This year, we are once again aiming for a new production record.”
While the smaller Skoda KAROQ is expected to further increase demand and production totals for Skoda over the next 12 months (check out more details on the new Skoda compact SUV).
And the increased demand for Skoda vehicles is not just an overseas phenomenon, in Australia, until the end of September, Skoda sales were ahead a full 16% on the same period last year.
