ŠKODA continues model offensive with new Octavia Combi. Successful production start for new Octavia. ŠKODA to launch eight new models or variants in 2013. Growth continues in China, ŠKODA's strongest market. ​
In February 2013, ŠKODA delivered a total of 67,100 cars worldwide (February 2012: 72,100), a decline of 6.9 per cent. In the first two months of this year, the brand sold more than 136,600  (year ago: 147,500). The main reason for this sales trend is the current ramp-up of production of the new ŠKODA Octavia. The continuous weakness of some European markets is also influencing its marks. In China, ŠKODA grew by 3.2 per cent, outperforming the market.

"For ŠKODA, what is marking the start of 2013 is the new ŠKODA Octavia. We are currently ramping up production at our main plant in the Czech Republic. Sales of the saloon are beginning in European markets, and the ŠKODA Octavia Combi just had its world debut at the Automobile Salon in Geneva," says ŠKODA CEO Winfried Vahland. "We are confident that we will continue our brand's progress this year thanks to our model offensive." The sales situation is also being affected by the weakness of some European markets, which not even ŠKODA managed to escape completely. The company's outlook for the overall year remains basically positive. "As soon as the volume of the Octavia and its model variants becomes fully available, we will see positive effects," says Vahland.

In 2013, ŠKODA will be introducing a total of eight new ŠKODA models or model variants. The feedback from the media and customers so far has been extremely positive. Cars for the market launch of the ŠKODA Octavia Combi will be made available at dealerships from May.
