ŠKODA delivers 88,100 vehicles in August

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

Russia (+3.9%)

› Models: Continued high demand for the SUV models KODIAQ and KAROQ

› KAMIQ MONTE CARLO and SCALA MONTE CARLO celebrate world premiere at IAA Frankfurt

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.”

(1,300 vehicles, +36.8%), Austria (2,400 vehicles, +36.7%) and the Netherlands (1,400

vehicles, +21.0%).

In Central Europe, ŠKODA delivered 15,200 vehicles, an increase of 2.4%

(August 2018: 14,800 vehicles). Deliveries in the Czech domestic market increased by 8.5% year-onyear

to 6,900 vehicles (August 2018: 6,300 vehicles).

In Eastern Europe excluding Russia, ŠKODA grew significantly, increasing its deliveries by 13.9%

representing a 23.8% decrease compared to the same period last year

(August 2018: 29,000 vehicles). The decline in deliveries in China is due to the current market

uncertainty and consumer reticence.
