First quarter Skoda sales were boosted by new SUV additions; Kodiaq and Karoq

The success has been credited to the new Kodiaq seven-seat SUV, as well as the recently launched Škoda Karoq SUV. Škoda’s SUV true fleet registrations increased by 4.6% over the same period last year, with 471 Kodiaqs and 478 Karoqs delivered to customers.

The Škoda Octavia continued to appeal to businesses with 2,249 registered before the end of March. Meanwhile, Škoda sold 1,161 Superb cars alongside 973 Fabias and Rapid/Spaceback and Citigo delivering 103 and 64 cars respectively, during the period.

Henry Williams, Škoda head of fleet, commented: “We’ve enjoyed a great start to the year and continue to carve out a bigger share of the market as more and more customers turn to the quality, design and reliability of the Škoda brand. The newly launched Karoq has played an important role helping to bolster our SUV sales and we expect it to continue to perform well for the rest of the year.”
