29/02/2016
ŠKODA UK has announced the winners of its annual Retailer of the Year (ROTY) awards.

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.”

Britain is experiencing a scorcher of a summer with temperatures soaring into the thirties during July. Forecasts are expected to stay sunny and hot, which is good news for sun-seekers but the heat can make family dogs feel very hot under the collar.
ŠKODA is getting into the summer spirit with a range of tempting new deals and offers on its range of award-winning cars. With significant deposit contributions of up to £3,000, finance rates as low as 3.9% representative APR and servicing packages, ŠKODA is turning up the heat on the competition and delivering fantastic value for money to customers.
It’s a case of another year, another haul of silverware for ŠKODA at the Auto Express New Car Awards. The brand recorded no fewer that three outright category wins - equalling its best ever performance at the Auto Express New Car Awards. The new KAROQ, KODIAQ and OCTAVIA all commanded their respective sectors, further reinforcing SKODA’s reputation for building some of the very best cars on the new car market.
ŠKODA AUTO CEO Bernhard Maier and Gurpratap Boparai, Managing Director of ŠKODA AUTO India Private Ltd, announced details of the ‘INDIA 2.0’ project at a press conference in New Delhi today.
The state-of-the-art emergency KAROQ follows on the wheels of ŠKODA’s renowned heritage of supplying emergency service vehicles that stretches back more than 110 years. The fully-converted rapid response KAROQ could play a significant role in blue light fleets over the coming years thanks to its versatility, comfort and value.

Emotion, dynamism and passion – ŠKODA combines all of these qualities with the ‘vRS’ initials. Even before its market launch, the Czech car manufacturer’s first high performance SUV, the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, proves that it can hold its own on the most challenging race track in the world. Racing driver Sabine Schmitz set the lap record for a seven-seater SUV at the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife in the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, highlighting the car’s performance qualities. The KODIAQ vRS extends the range of vRS models in the ŠKODA line up.
