Skoda Produces Seven Millionth Vehicle under VW Ownership

Skoda Yeti

Skoda Auto has produced the seven millionth Skoda vehicle in its modern history since becoming part of the Volkswagen Group in 1991.

The model that triggered off an extensive transformation and convinced Volkswagen Group to invest was the Skoda Favorit that Skoda produced from 1988 till 1994 when the Å koda Felicia was launched. The product portfolio has been extended since then.

A major change came in 1996 with the Skoda Octavia. Seen as a solid value-for-money proposition, the car remains popular and the company keeps producing the original version under the name Octavia Tour.

Another important model was the Skoda Fabia that the Company introduced in 1999. The vehicle came in three versions — a hatchback, a wagon and a sedan. The second-generation Fabia replaced its predecessor in 2007. Two versions are available now — a hatchback and a wagon.

In 2001, Skoda Auto entered the upper medium segment with the Skoda Superb. The Company’s flagship was then modernised in 2008, and the new vehicle offered numerous original solutions including a tailgate system called TwinDoor.

In 2006 Skoda Auto entered the segment of small MPVs with the Skoda Roomster.  Introduced at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, the fifth product added to the portfolio is the Skoda Yeti with which the Czech-based car manufacturer is entering the SUV segment.
