ŠKODA AUTO delivers more than 1.2 million vehicles in 2017

Deliver Record: more than 1.2 million vehicles worldwide in 2017

ŠKODA AUTO set a new sales record in 2017. The traditional Czech brand’s global deliveries rose by 6,6% to 1,200,500 vehicles (2016: 1,126,500). For the fourth time in a row, ŠKODA AUTO sold more than one million vehicles in a year. In addition to the best-selling ŠKODA OCTAVIA, the most important growth drivers are the ŠKODA SUPERB and the new SUVs KODIAQ and KAROQ; both have enjoyed great popularity since their launch.

"2017 was the best year in ŠKODA's 122-year history. This gives us further inputs, and we would like to thank all our customers for the trust they have placed in us. The past year has demonstrated that with ŠKODA Strategy 2025, we are on the right path to successfully shape the profound changes in the automotive industry. At the same time, this success motivates us to go full throttle again this year. And that is exactly what we are doing with numerous new products and mobility solutions that will delight our customers," says ŠKODA CEO Bernhard Maier.

Alain Favey, ŠKODA Board Member for Sales and Marketing, adds: "The fact that both of our new SUV models have been so well received by customers right from the start is thanks to our strong sales network. ŠKODA dealers around the world did a fantastic job in 2017 – they are an important pillar of our success.”

For ŠKODA, 2017 ended as it began: with a sales record. After the best January in the company’s 122-year history, the Czech carmaker also set a new record for the month of December. With 107,500 vehicles delivered, ŠKODA exceeded the previous year's result by 19.2%.

ŠKODA's strongest sales market worldwide is still China. In this region, the Czech carmaker’s sales increased by 2.5% to 325,000 units in 2017 (2016: 317,100 vehicles). In December, the brand delivered 42,400 vehicles to customers – 41.8% more than in the same month last year (December 2016: 29,900 vehicles).
