Milton Keynes, 29 February 2016 - The awards recognise the achievements of the very best of ŠKODA‘s 128 UK retailers across eight different categories. Bickerton ŠKODA (Sheffield) and Rainworth ŠKODA (Mansfield) emerged victorious under the fleet category, in recognition of their outstanding performance in 2015.
Staff at each UK retailer were presented with their awards by Henry Williams, Head of Fleet for ŠKODA UK.
Henry Williams commented: “Both businesses have demonstrated outstanding results and really capture the essence of what has made ŠKODA such a success in the UK fleet market. I’d like to congratulate our whole retailer network on their hard work and effort in 2015 and look forward to a record-breaking 2016.”
Simon Beckett, Director of Bickerton and Rainworth ŠKODA, added: “Thanks to ŠKODA for this tremendous accolade. We have worked tirelessly to build on the strong reputation that we have locally, so it’s great to be rewarded for our efforts. Our team is dedicated to catering for all of the different requirements of business customers, and for this reason we have seen massive growth during recent years with ŠKODA fleet sales. I’d like to take the chance to thank the whole team here for their hard work.”
ŠKODA UK has launched its first online showroom. Customers can access the ŠKODA Live Tour on their computer, tablet or smartphone – and gain the showroom experience at a time and place that suits them. ŠKODA Live Tour instantly connects the customer to a ŠKODA Product Host by an internet video link, who takes them into the Live Tour showroom and introduces the ŠKODA models.
ŠKODA’s new compact SUV is called the KAROQ. The name and its spelling originate from the language of the Alutiiq, an indigenous tribe who live on an island off the southern coast of Alaska. For the name of the new compact SUV, ŠKODA has drawn on the spelling of the ŠKODA KODIAQ and in doing so, has created a consistent nomenclature for the brand’s current and future SUV models. The ŠKODA KAROQ will be introduced to the public for the first time in Stockholm on 18 May and represents a further milestone in ŠKODA’s SUV campaign.
