Skoda Boosted By Record Start To 2018

Tue 17th Apr 2018

Czech motor brand Skoda has announced a record-breaking start to 2018, after reporting a 3.9% market share for the first quarter.

The brand which is going from strength to strength following its ownership from Volkswagen Group, sold 5,536 vehicles between January and March, with the success down to the manufacturer’s focus on a new range of SUVs.

Skoda have seen the critics raving about their seven-seat Kodiaq and five-seat Karoq and this seems to have been reflected in sales across the brand.

Henry Williams, Skoda’s head of fleet, commented: “The newly launched Karoq has played an important role helping to bolster our SUV sales and we expect it to continue to perform well for the rest of the year.

“We’ve enjoyed a great start to the year and continue to carve out a bigger share of the market as more and more customers turn to the quality, design and reliability of the Skoda brand.”

Skoda’s flagship motor, the Octavia, continues to be the jewel in the crown for the Czech company, and has strong sales as the brand’s most popular vehicle with Superbs, Fabias, Rapids and Citigos also showing strength.
