› Markets: Growth in Western (+6.7%), Central (+2.4%) and Eastern Europe (+13.9%) and

Russia (+3.9%)

Mladá Boleslav, 12 September 2019 – ŠKODA delivered 88,100 vehicles worldwide in August,

bringing the carmaker 4.1% down on the previous year (August 2018: 91,800 vehicles). The

reason continues to be the declining development of the Chinese car market. On the other

international markets, ŠKODA increased its total deliveries by 5.0% year-on-year to 66,000

vehicles. Demand for the SUV models KODIAQ and KAROQ remains high.

Alain Favey, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Sales and Marketing, says: “Thanks to strong demand

for our SUV models KODIAQ and KAROQ, we were able to compensate for the effects of the current

market trend in our largest market, China, in August. In the coming months, we expect new growth

impetus from the launch of the ŠKODA KAMIQ, our new city SUV for the European markets.

Alongside the KAMIQ MONTE CARLO, we present the SCALA MONTE CARLO, another attractive

model variant of our new compact model, at this year’s International Motor Show in September.”
