Skoda Sets Monthly Sales Record in March 2011

With 85,000 deliveries, Skoda has managed to achieved the best monthly sales result in its history in March 2011, and has continued growing strongly in comparison to the previous year, when only 74,900 vehicles were shifted during the same month. What’s more, never before did the brand sell more cars in a single month than in the third month of this year, in which total sales rose 21.4 percent to 217,100 units.

“We continue to make very good progress in our markets and remain confident to significantly boost our sales over the entire year of 2011 compared to the previous year,” explained Jurgen Stackmann, the Skoda board member for sales and marketing.

In the process, the automaker achieved new all-time record sales in the markets of India, Russia, and Belgium. On the home market of the Czech Republic, Skoda continued to expand on its leadership with the 5,100 units delivered representing an increase of 9.2 percent and a market share increase of 30.3 percent.

“Basically, our growth takes place in all the markets. The greatest dynamics continue to be recorded in the emerging countries of China, India, and Russia. Based on this premise, we expect that the worldwide automobile market will continue to grow this year. Like all manufacturers, Skoda currently pays particular attention to stable logistics and supply chains in order to be able to satisfy the growing demand,” Stackmann added.

Deliveries to customers in March 2011 on a model by model basis (SKODA models compared to March 2010):
  • Octavia (34,200 vehicles / plus 15.2 percent)
  • Fabia (27,300 vehicles / plus 17.6 percent)
  • Superb (11,700 vehicles / plus 37.3 percent)
  • Yeti (7,000 vehicles / plus 37.7 percent)

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
