The 15-millonth Skoda rolls-off the plant in Mlada Boleslav

Skoda has produced the 15-millionth car. The jubilee vehicle - a silver third-generation Skoda Octavia - rolled-off the assembly line at Skoda's main plant in Mlada Boleslav. The vehicle will be used as a VIP
sedan at the Skoda Technology Center in Cesana.

The 15-million car threshold underlines the dynamic growth of the brand. At the beginning of 2012, Skoda had produced the 14-millionth car. In the past six years alone, one third or approx five-million vehicles rolled-off the assembly lines. The car manufacturer wants to increase worldwide sales to at least 1.5-million units per year by 2018. In 2012, Skoda sold 939,200 vehicles - more than ever in one year.

"The entire Skoda team is very proud of the million jubilee," says Skoda Chairman of the Board, Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. "15-million produced cars are a symbol for the great development of the Skoda brand. We have been building vehicles for 118 years and automobiles since the year 1905. Thus we are among the automobile brands with the richest traditions in the world," said Vahland. In the coming years, Skoda wants to continue to speed up development and sell at least 1.5-million vehicles per year by 2018. Launching the Citigo, Rapid and the new Octavia, the greatest model offensive in company's history has had a successful start. In total Skoda will launch 8 new or reworked models in 2013.
