Skoda Announces New Monthly Sales Record

Czech carmaker Skoda today announced its sales figures for the month of March, when the company delivered a record 95,200 cars worldwide, 12.1 percent more than the same month a year ago. Not only have they broken the month record, but Q1 2012 was their best quarter ever, with 242,700 units delivered.
What’s more, Skoda’s world market share reportedly increased to almost 1.5 percent compared to 1.4 percent in 2011, so they are keeping ahead of the pack.

Markets such as China and India continued their successful trend and set new highs; Russia, Eastern Europe and major Western European markets also posted double-digit growth, which is quite a special achievement considering most automakers couldn’t manage this, at least in Skoda’s budget car segment.

“Skoda continued on its growth course in March and in the first quarter,” said Jürgen Stackmann, Škoda Board Member for Sales and Marketing. “Though market conditions were difficult worldwide, we managed to increase our sales, bucking the market trend. This confirms our 2018 growth strategy and is a reflection of all our employees’, importers’ and dealers’dedication,” said Stackmann, adding: “In the months ahead, we will continue our model offensive and add new models to our palette.”

On a model by model basis, their most popular models in Western Europe were the Fabia and the Octavia, while the Yeti and the Roomster achieved the highest growth rates, posting 10.3% and 4.7% respectively.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
