ŠKODA achieves new sales record in first half of 2016

01/08/2016
ŠKODA’s growth continues in the first half of 2016: Between January and June, deliveries to customers worldwide increased 4.6% to 569,400 vehicles (first half of 2015: 544,300). This is a new ŠKODA sales record for the first half of a year. The Czech carmaker delivered 98,800 vehicles in June (up 4.4% compared to June 2015). The positive development in the core markets of China and Europe and the recovery of sales in Russia have contributed as much to the record results as the significant gains of the model series ŠKODA FABIA, SUPERB and YETI.

ŠKODA did very well in the first half of the year, and the company’s stable growth continues,” says ŠKODA Board Member for Sales and Marketing Werner Eichhorn. “The sales record is the result of an attractive model range and our team’s great performance. The strong sales figures in the first six months give us confidence for the second half of the year.”

In Western Europe, ŠKODA grew in June and the first half of the year. Compared to the same month last year, deliveries increased by 5.3% to 45,000 units (June 2015: 42,700 vehicles). From January to June, the brand’s sales improved by 7.5% to 242,500 vehicles. In Germany, sales increased in this period by 6.9% to 86,500 units. The Czech car manufacturer recorded double-digit growth in June in the Netherlands (1600 vehicles; up 37.3%), France (2600 vehicles; up 21.2%), Great Britain (8500 vehicles; 17.8%), Italy (2000 vehicles; up 27.2%) and Spain where sales increased 31% to 2400 vehicles.

ŠKODA also recorded a significant sales increase in Central Europe. Sales in June increased 13% to 17,200 vehicles (June 2015: 15,300 vehicles). In the first half, ŠKODA sold 96,300 units and achieved an increase of 8.3%. In their home market – the Czech Republic – sales increased 7% to 8200 vehicles in June, and 7.9% to 46,200 units in the first half of the year. In Croatia (500 vehicles; up 18.4%), Poland (5200 vehicles; 21.7%) and Hungary (1000 vehicles, up 30.7%), deliveries increased in double digits.

In Eastern Europe, excluding Russia ŠKODA surpassed the previous June by 12.8% with 3300 vehicles (June 2015: 2900 vehicles). In the first half of the year, the Czech manufacturer even grew in the tight markets (17,000 vehicles; up 6.5%) and the brand’s market share increased by 14.6% to 8.5%. In Russia, ŠKODA recorded an increase of 8.9% (4800 vehicles) compared to the same month last year (June 2015: 4400 vehicles). Between January and June, ŠKODA sold 26,900 vehicles (first half of 2015: 28,000), and the company’s market share increased significantly – by 12.8% to 4.3%. Sales figures also increased in the Baltic countries (500 vehicles; up 3.7%), Bosnia (100 vehicles; up 96.9%), Bulgaria (300 vehicles; up 3.3%), Romania (1000 vehicles; up 32.8%) and Ukraine (300 vehicles, up 202.7%).

ŠKODA also surpassed last year’s sales figures in China – the company’s strongest market worldwide: In June, sales climbed by 11.8% (22,400 vehicles). The six-month balance also closed positively with an increase of 5.4% (145,800 vehicles). In addition, ŠKODA recorded growth in New Zealand (100 vehicles; up 12.8%) and Taiwan (400 vehicles; up 46.2%).

ŠKODA vRS: celebrating 15 years of excitement and performance
ŠKODA’s rich sporting and performance history reaches a historic milestone in 2016 with the 15th anniversary of the vRS brand in the UK. Since the first Octavia vRS arrived in showrooms back in 2001, ŠKODA has continually developed the vRS range; adding more power, performance and excitement to cars wearing the famous three letter badge.
ŠKODA's large SUV is called Kodiaq
ŠKODA’s new large SUV is to be called Kodiaq. The name refers to the Kodiak bear that lives on a remote island off the southern coast of Alaska. Its spelling is derived from the language of the indigenous people – the Alutiiq. ŠKODA will usher in a new SUV campaign with the introduction of the Kodiaq when it makes its public debut in the second half of 2016.

Success Story: ŠKODA and Volkswagen Celebrate 25-Year Partnership
The foundations of an exemplary success story were laid 25 years ago. The partnership between the Volkswagen Group and the Czech carmaker began on 16 April 1991. From that point on, the traditional Czech brand evolved from being a regional market leader to an internationally successful vehicle manufacturer. In the presence of Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller and Jaroslav Povšík, head of trade union KOVO MB, ŠKODA CEO Bernhard Maier commemorated this outstanding milestone in the company’s 121-year history today. Around 500 guests from politics, economy and society took part in the anniversary celebrations at the Laurin & Klement Forum of the ŠKODA Museum in Mladá Boleslav.

Delivering 106,300 units to customers worldwide in March (March 2015: 102,100; up 4.2%), the company sold more vehicles than ever before in a single calendar month. The positive developments in the core markets of China and Europe – with double-digit growth in numerous individual markets – also contributed to their record sales figures, including the significant gains of the ŠKODA Fabia, Superb and Yeti model series.
