Summertime is fine...with a ŠKODA Summer Health Check

17/08/2015
With summer holidays in full swing, ŠKODA is offering customers motoring peace of mind this August with a stress-free Summer Health Check.

Milton Keynes, 17 August 2015 - As thousands of families pack up the car for every possible eventuality this summer ŠKODA wants to remind customers that checking the health of their vehicle is just as important as remembering to charge the iPads.

For just £25, ŠKODA customers can book their car in at one of ŠKODA's 134 retailers across the UK for a Summer Health Check where their beloved car will undergo an Express Visual Check (EVC), delivered by fully-trained technicians. No detail is too small for the team as they carry out a seven-point check on tyres, lights, brakes, wiper blades, air-conditioning, batteries and fluids.

The Summer Health Check also includes a complimentary oil and washer fluid top up, alternator check, air-conditioning performance check and a free ŠKODA picnic blanket worth £15. Customers will also be entered into a draw to win one of ten £100 National Trust Gift Cards. The offer ends on 30 September 2015.

Warren Richards, Head of Service and Parts Operations at ŠKODA UK said, "With the summer holidays in full swing, families will be packing up the car ready for holidays all over the UK. The ŠKODA Summer Health Check gives our customers peace of mind that their vehicle is in perfect condition."

"Customers can rely on our fully-trained ŠKODA technicians to deliver an outstanding service and a hassle-free experience. Our technicians focus on the areas most likely to have suffered wear and tear in between recommended service intervals such as brakes and tyres, which can play on motorists' mind during long journeys.”

ŠKODA’s global deliveries in August increased to 80,700 vehicles. Compared to the same period last year, this represents growth of 14.2% (August 2015: 70,700 vehicles). Thus, the traditional Czech brand has continued its growth trend. The top model ŠKODA Superb and the ŠKODA Rapid in particular contributed to the brand’s success.
20 years ago, on 3 September 1996, former Czech President Vaclav Havel gave the starting signal for the production of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA in the newly opened part of the plant at the company's headquarters. This also marked the beginning of a unique success story: Over the following two decades, the ŠKODA OCTAVIA became a worldwide bestseller and is still the best selling model of the brand from Mladá Boleslav. The popular compact car paved the way for ŠKODA’s success.
​This is how ŠKODA's new large SUV looks inside: Shortly before its world premiere, the Czech automobile manufacturer gives a first glimpse inside the new large SUV. The photos emphasize that ŠKODA has implemented its modern, clear, expressive design language in the cockpit. At the same time, the images highlight

the brand's uncompromising standards in terms of functionality and build quality. ŠKODA is once again setting new standards in interior space: The ŠKODA KODIAQ features the largest boot in its class and is available as a seven-seater.

​Mladá Boleslav, 10 August 2016 – ŠKODA delivered 83,700 vehicles to customers worldwide this July (July 2015: 82,800 vehicles). This corresponds to a growth of 1.0% over the same period last year. The Czech manufacturer made significant gains, particularly in China (up 16.1%) and Russia (up 11.6%). The ŠKODA SUPERB continues to enjoy great popularity, with sales increasing 92.7% over last year.
​Ahead of its world premiere on 1 September in Berlin, ŠKODA has revealed images of the KODIAQ, its new, large SUV model. They give an impression of how ŠKODA will transfer the brand’s new expressive design language into the SUV segment.
​It’s not just pop star Rihanna offering the great British public the opportunity to “stand under my umbrella”, ŠKODA is extending that generosity with the introduction of the brand’s acclaimed built-in brolly across even more models in the range.
