Skoda Auto, between January and November 2014, has delivered 955,300 vehicles around the world, 34,500 more vehicles than in the whole of 2013, and 16,100 more deliveries than the previous record year – 2012. The number of deliveries in November increased 10.1% to 90,200 units. This was the best November so far in corporate history.
Speaking on the occasion, Skoda CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland said, “Skoda will set a new sales record this year. Following the positive results in November, the milestone of one million vehicles produced and sold in one calendar year is certain. Producing and selling one million skoda cars for the first time in one year is a milestone for our brand, and has made the whole team very proud.”
The backbone of this sales success has been the brand’s ongoing model campaign, through which the company is also winning over new consumer groups. The new Skoda Fabia has been on the first European markets since mid-November, and the new Skoda Fabia Combi (estate) will be heading to the dealerships in early 2015. Both body versions feature emotive designs, maximum functionality, low consumption and innovative technology from higher vehicle classes.
In India, Skoda achieved 1200 deliveries to customers this November (November 2013: 1600). Skoda deliveries to customers in November 2014 (in units, rounded off, by model; +/- in percent over November 2013):
