It is odd how some European automakers don`t seem to be affected by the poor economic situation on the Old Continent. Skoda is one of these manufacturers, and for the month of November, they have posted an increase of 3.8% in their worldwide deliveries, shifting 78,000 units in total - their growth was driven by the Chinese and Russian markets, as well as Europe.
Also, their year-to-date sales, from January to November, are also up, by 6.9% to around 873,000 units, compared to last year’s 816,800 record. Werner Eichhorn, Skoda Board Member for Sales and Marketing said: "Once again, we increased our deliveries even though markets were difficult [ . . . ] Our growth in Western Europe in November is especially welcome given that we grew against the market trend. The situation on the markets continues to be demanding. However, ŠKODA remains on the offensive with new models.

As mentioned before, they have also been doing great both in Western and Eastern Europe, as they recorded a growth figure of 4.3% for the former (28,200 units sold), while the latter achieved a 7.9% increase in sales (12,400 units), while sales in India went up by 24,4%, while in China, the growth figure was 4.9%.
