ŠKODA continues along the path of growth. In October the Czech carmaker grew by 8.6% to 91,000 vehicles delivered worldwide (October 2013: 83,800), making this the best October in corporate history. In Europe, ŠKODA’s market share increased to 4.4%. In China, ŠKODA achieved their second-best sales month since entering the market back in 2007.

“ŠKODA is on the path to success in the international markets,” says Werner Eichhorn, ŠKODA Board Member for Sales and Marketing. “ŠKODA’s best October ever and recording growth of 12.5% over the first ten months of this year demonstrate how well our product range has been accepted. We are vigorously pursuing our model campaign with the introduction of the new Fabia. The initial reactions to our small car from the media, dealers and customers have been extremely positive, and give us reason to be very confident.”

The new ŠKODA Fabia, introduced last month will be heading to the first European markets in just a few days. The new ŠKODA Fabia Combi is soon to follow in January 2015. Both body versions of the small car feature the very best functionality, emotional design and the latest technology from higher vehicle classes. The manufacturer plans to reach out to new, younger target groups with the completely redeveloped Fabia.
