Skoda continues its growth in September

Article by Christian A., on October 18, 2012

ŠKODA AUTO continues to be on the same growth trend in September 2012. ŠKODA’s deliveries to customers year-on-year increased by 3.3% to around 83,900. For the first nine months of the year, its sales rose by 7.9% year-on-year. As of September 2012, ŠKODA was able to deliver a total of 717,200 cars this year.

The figure for the same period last year was 664,800 cars. ŠKODA performed poorly in Western Europe but it did better than the overall market, with a total delivery of 33,700 cars in September 2012. On the other hand, it delivered 35,200 cars in September 2011. ŠKODA’s market share widened from 2.8 to over 3% in the first nine months of this year.

The brand did particularly well in Germany, its biggest market in Europe. Its sales increased by 9.2% to about 13,700 sold, while the overall market declined significantly. ŠKODA sold more than 7,400 in Great Britain, the brand’s No. 2 market in Western Europe, signifying a 1.1% increase.

This is its second-best sales figure in this region ever. But in Eastern Europe as well, ŠKODA performed better than the market in September 2012. Deliveries had increased by 22.7% with 11,700 cars compared to 9,500 deliveries in September 2011. ŠKODA’s growth is therefore three times quicker than the pace of the Eastern European market overall (with a prediction of 7.2%).

In the first nine months of 2012, the brand’s share of the Eastern Europe market climbed from 3.4 to over 4%. ŠKODA reported a 35.1% increase in Russia, the region’s largest market, with sales of 8,800 cars compared to 6,500 in September 2011. It did better than the market by a factor of more than three.

ŠKODA sold 9,300 cars in Central Europe in September 2012. In comparison, it sold 10,400 in September 2011. Overall, the Central European market was weaker year on year, with a 4.4% drop.

In ŠKODA’s home market in the Czech Republic, it reported deliveries of more than 4,600 cars to customers in September 2012 compared to 5,100 in September 2011. This gave ŠKODA a market share of about 37%. In the first nine months of 2012, ŠKODA increased its deliveries in Central Europe to 94,000 for a year on year increase of 3%, increasing the market share of the brand in the region from 18.4 to 18.8% during the same period.
