Skoda has crossed yet another milestone as the Czech carmaker has produced their 17 millionth vehicle. The jubilee car – a Skoda Rapid Spaceback in Corrida Red ran off the production line at the Skoda headquarters in Mladá Boleslav. The vehicle is going to a customer in Germany. In 2014 Skoda manufactured and sold more than 1 million cars for the first time during a single year in the company’s 120-year history. Over the coming years, Skoda plans to increase sales to at least 1.5 million per year. Skoda says that it has made incredible progress especially since joining the Volkswagen Group in 1991.


Speaking about this milestone, Skoda CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland said, “Skoda is doing extremely well. Producing 17 million vehicles since 1905 demonstrates the brand’s strength and sustained success. Since 1991, when Skoda joined forces with Volkswagen, we have manufactured more than 12 million cars. Now, we can definitely say we are established in the ‘Champions League’ of international volume manufacturers. Skoda will continue to grow over the coming years with new models.”
