Skoda achieved a market share of over six percent in Germany for the first time. Thanks to a significantly growing order backlog, the coming months will also be positive for the Czech VW subsidiary.
For the first time in one month, Skoda has achieved a market share of six percent in Germany. With 12,590 units sold, the Czech VW subsidiary closed February with an increase of 22 percent compared to the same month last year. "February confirmed the positive trend of the last few months. With a 22 percent increase in new registrations, we developed significantly better than the overall market in February," said Imelda Labbé, Spokeswoman for the management of Skoda Germany.
Skoda optimistic about the future
For the first two months, too, Skoda recorded a clear upward trend in Germany. 23,403 cars were sold compared to 19,417 sales in the first two months of last year, an increase of 20.5 percent. Skoda thus expanded its leading position among importers.
Labbé is also optimistic about the future. "The order backlog has also developed very positively. With an increase of more than 40 percent, it is well above our expectations." In addition to the expected new registrations, the new models that celebrate their premiere at the Geneva Motor Show should also contribute. The Octavia Scout, the Octavia L&K and the Octavia G-TEC with natural gas drive make their debut there. The Monte Carlo versions of Yeti, Rapid Spaceback and Citigo will also be revealed.(AG)
