Skoda Soldiers Ahead With 11.3% Sales Increase in October

Despite the fact that its presence is almost limited to the European market, Skoda still manages to keep on track with its sales estimates. After ten month of 2011 have passed, the automaker from the Czech Republic says it’s close to braking the figures for the whole of last year.
Last month, they managed to increase their sales by 11.3 percent during October for a YTD result of 16.2 percent or 741,800.

“Despite differences in growth rates across the regions, ŠKODA heads steadfast toward its 2011 targets,” said Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Directors responsible for Sales and Marketing. “After ten months, we are already close to matching our 2010 sales total, and this year, for the first time in our history, we will sell more than 800,000 vehicles.”

“Moreover, in the last two months of the year we are going to accelerate even more: with the Rapid in India and the Citigo in the Czech Republic, the first representatives of our model offensive are going to the start line in the upcoming weeks. The new models will add to our final finish this year and give us the required drive for a good start in 2012,”
he adds.

Going against the tide of an overall sluggish market, its sales went up by 2.8 percent to 29,200 cars in Western Europe, but it was the Eastern part that dominated the percentage figures with Ukraine reporting a 51% increase.
