Skoda Produce One Million Cars Per Year For First Time
|   Thursday, December 25, 2014
Skoda has just marked an important landmark with a Skoda Fabia 1.2 TSI / 81 kW, painted White Moon. This signifies the fact that Skoda sales increased six times compared to 1991 and is the first time in the history of the brand when Skoda has produced more than 1 million vehicles during a calendar year.

In the main factory in Mladá Boleslav the anniversary car has gone out of the production line - a Skoda Fabia 1.2 TSI / 81 kW, painted White Moon.
By reaching the threshold of one million cars produced during a single calendar year, the Czech car manufacturer reaffirms its international growth strategy.

At the base of its growth in production and sales has been the largest model offensive in Skoda's history. Since 2010, the Czech manufacturer has renewed its range of models developed in key segments, especially in the main Skoda factory in Mlada Boleslav - the soul of its global production network.

This milestone emphasizes again the remarkable progress of the Czech manufacturer, especially during the last two decades. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain and joining the Volkswagen Group in April 1991 Skoda has increased sales six times.

The quick revival of the legendary car brand was really impressive - located in the heart of Europe, it has become an internationally successful manufacturer with a range of 7 models available in over 40 variants. For the production of a single model in 1991, namely the Favorit, Skoda offers today the most diverse and attractive range of products of all time.

An important pillar of this growth over recent years has been the expansion to new markets outside Europe. In the early 90s, the Czech manufacturer was still unilaterally developed in the local market and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Today, Skoda sells its products in more than 100 countries worldwide. China was the strongest individual market brand since 2010. Just during the first months of this year, sales in the Chinese market accounted for a quarter of total sales.

In this context, Skoda puts an emphasis on the local production of key international markets, in addition to extensive capabilities in their country as part of their international development strategy. In China, the Czechs produce units in Anting, Yizheng and Ningbo, in partnership with Shanghai Volkswagen (SVW). So far, more than 1.3 million units were produced for the Chinese market in SVW factories. This year, Skoda has doubled its range in China, reaching 6 models manufactured locally.

In Russia, Skoda models are produced in Nizhniy Novgorod and Kaluga. In India, Skoda cars are coming off the production line in Pune and Aurangabad. Skoda cars are also produced in Slovakia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.

Now for a few important Skoda landmarks in reverse order:
- December 10, 2014: Skoda produces vehicle number 1 million for the first time in a calendar year.
