15th Million Škoda Rolls Off the Assembly Line

Since 1905 Škoda has produced 15 million cars. The celebration vehicle is a silver, third-generation Octavia, which rolled off the assembly line at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav on Tuesday, 5 February. The vehicle will be used as a VIP sedan at the ŠKODA Technology Center in Česana.

Skoda has really increased its production in the last couple of years. Just year ago Škoda had produced its 14-millionth car.

The best selling car clearly is the Octavia, since 1996, about 3.75 million Octavias have been delivered to customers.

Škoda plans to speed up development and sell at least 1.5 million vehicles per year by 2018. Just this year Škoda will launch eight new or facelifted models.

In order to prepare for the planned growth, ŠKkoda has also been expanding heavily its capacities in China, Russia and India.
