Skoda has produced the 1,500,000th second-generation Skoda Fabia. The jubilee vehicle, a Fabia 1.2 TDI, rolled-off the production line at the main factory in Mlada Boleslav. The current generation Fabia has delighted customers on international markets since 2007.
The Skoda Fabia celebrated its sales debut in 1999. Having sold 3,253,817 first and second-generation Fabias to date, the small car is the Czech car manufacturer's best-selling model, after the Skoda Octavia with 3,984,821 sales worldwide.

"The Skoda Fabia has been of crucial importance to the success of the Skoda brand," said Skoda CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. "Producing 1.5-million vehicles since 2007 is proof of the outstanding development of the Fabia and indicates how well the customers perceive the current generation. In Europe and other international markets, the Fabia is our best-selling model after the Octavia and a cornerstone of our growth."

The Skoda Fabia was launched in 1999 as the brand's third new model. 1,788,063 of the first-generation were produced over a period of eight years. Production started on the second generation in 2007, firstly as a hatchback and then, in 2008, also as a Combi. An exact total of 3,253,817 Skoda Fabias (both generations) were delivered to customers between 1999 and August 2013.
