Skoda celebrates 20 years in Ireland

To mark 20 years in Ireland, Skoda has announced it will host a large scale celebratory open event throughout its nationwide dealer network until July 6, 2013.

Debuting back in 1993 with a two car range, the Czech car maker sold just 76 vehicles through a network
of only four dealers. 20 years on the brand has become a household name with over 60,600 vehicles delivered to customers over the period. Represented by 22 established dealers, the range of vehicles offered by Skoda has grown to 10 model variants.

"We are extremely proud of what has been achieved over the past 20 years. The last five years have been among the most challenging the car industry has seen but our products have proven they are fitting for the current environment where customers are attuning to value more than ever before. This is only the beginning for Skoda. We have doubled our market share in just five years and the next five years will see the introduction of even more models to the range including two new SUVs by 2018. Looking to the future, I don’t see why Skoda cannot become a top 3 car brand in Ireland," said John Donegan, Brand Director for Skoda Ireland.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers, our great network of dealers and all our employees, past and present, for their contributions to the Skoda organisation over the past 20 years."
