Škoda Auto achieved its best ever sales result in 2010 with 762,600 vehicles sold, representing an increase of 11.5% on 2009 figures. The threshold of three quarters of a million vehicles sold was crossed for the first time in the company’s history.
Prof. Dr. H.C. Winfried Vahland, Chairman of the Board of Škoda Auto, assessed the positive result as a major step forward within the framework of the growth strategy for the brand. “In 2010, Škoda achieved an outstanding performance. In almost all markets, we have had significant growth and increased our market share. Once again, our sales have risen at a double-digit pace. In the most significant developing markets, our growth rates are above 40%. Within the framework of the Škoda growth strategy, we will shift up a gear in the coming years. By 2018, we want to at least double our worldwide sales. In order to do so, we will clearly expand the Škoda model range and strengthen the activities in international markets.”
