Skoda produces its 15 millionth car since joining the VW Group

Skoda is celebrating the production of its 15-millionth vehicle since the beginning of its partnership with Volkswagen. Since being incorporated into the Volkswagen Group in 1991, Skoda has transformed from a regional operator into a high-volume manufacturer.

Last year, the car manufacturer achieved a new sales record with 1,126,500 deliveries. After a fresh start under the umbrella of Volkswagen Group in 1991, Skoda initially offered one model range and sold 170,000 cars per year. In 2016, the manufacturer achieved a new record figure with 1,126,500 deliveries being made worldwide. 

With seven model ranges and over 40 variants, Skoda has a decent variety of vehicles to cater to the buyers. The brand’s SUV onslaught began with the launch of the Kodiaq in February 2017. This is being continued with the Karoq compact SUV, whose production will begin shortly. With a total of 5.6 million cars, the Octavia represents the largest proportion of the 15 million cars that have been produced since the merger with Volkswagen, followed by the small car, Fabia, with four million and the Superb with just over one million.

In its home country of the Czech Republic, besides its main plant in Mlada Boleslav, Skoda also operates production plants in Kvasiny and Vrchlabí. In addition, the brand’s cars are rolling off the production line at VW Group plants in China, India, Russia and Slovakia.
