One of the most loved cars in Europe and the engine of Skoda growth in China, the current Octavia reaches an important milestone. 

Considered the heart of the brand and the most successful Skoda ever, the current generation Octavia reached one milion units produced. An Octavia Scout in moon-white, has rolled off the assembly line at the main factory in Mlada Boleslav. Five million Skoda Octavias have been manufactured in total since 1996.

The third generation of the Octavia was launched on the market in 2013. Most Octavia models are produced at the main plant in Mlada Boleslav. In addition to production in the Czech Republic, the Skoda Octavia runs off the assembly lines in China, Russia, India and Kazakhstan.

As Skoda’s largest individual market, China plays a crucial role for both the brand and the model. The Skoda Octavia was launched in China in May 2014. Since then, the compact-class vehicle has been produced at SAIC Volkswagen’s factory in Ningbo.

In 2015 alone, 432,300 vehicles from the Octavia model series were sold around the world, which is around 11% more Octavia models than the previous year. Skoda delivered 70,500 Octavias to customers in the first two months of this year.
