Skoda has just revealed that the brand has produced 1 lakh units of the current gen Superb. The announcement comes as part of the model’s 15th anniversary. Since the launch of the first Superb in 2001, Skoda has produced around 9 lakh units of all three generation models.
The current-gen Superb was introduced globally in March 2015. Since then, the model has been a runaway success for Skoda, thanks to its sharp new design, tons of features and even more space inside than its already spacious predecessor.
The origins of Skoda’s premium, luxury offering dates back to the early years of automobile manufacturing. In 1907, the Laurin&Klement FF became the first eight-cylinder model in Central Europe. The model name Superb was launched for the first time in 1934 in the form of the 640 Superb. The vehicle turned out to be quite radical at the time, with independent suspension and a 2.5-litre six-cylinder engine producing 55bhp. Only around 200 vehicles left Skoda’s production halls though.
