Fleet sales power Skoda to UK record
In 2010 Skoda UK totalled 41,240 registrations; as of 28 November, UK registrations had reached 41,313.
With still another month of trading, Skoda UK expects to break through the 45,000 barrier, a goal that it has set for itself. Market share has reached 2.3%.
Registrations are strong in both retail and fleet areas, but especially so in fleet, where Skoda UK has set a new record. With over 19,800 fleet registrations, the brand is up over 30% compared to 2010, versus the market rise of 4%.
Robert Hazelwood, Skoda UK brand director, said: ‘This is a new record for Skoda in the UK, but we’re not stopping here. We have another month of trading to come in December, and we’re looking for a very strong finish to the year. Our congratulations to our retailer network who work very hard to deliver outstanding service to our customers and prospects. We’re looking forward to continuing our momentum into a great start to 2012.’
