The company recorded 120,200 deliveries last month, exceeding the previous year’s strong result by 10.7%.

The core markets of China, Russia, Europe and India also contributed to the record sales, as did the significant gains of the Skoda OCTAVIA and KODIAQ model series. The Skoda KAROQ is also a pillar of the company’s continued success, with 17,100 units sold in the first three months of 2018 alone.

With 17,100 deliveries, Germany remained the second largest single market in March (March 2017: 17,100 vehicles). 

In Eastern Europe excluding Russia, the Czech carmaker also grew significantly in March. Deliveries were up 19.5% to 3,900 vehicles (March 2017: 3,300 vehicles). With 9,800 deliveries, ŠKODA AUTO recorded an increase of 15.4% in the first quarter compared to the previous year (January to March 2017: 8,500 vehicles).

In China, the world's most important market, ŠKODA AUTO’s deliveries increased by 29.0% to 28,100 vehicles in March (March 2017: 21,800 vehicles). In the first quarter, deliveries in the region were up 18.6% on the previous year, increasing to 79,200 vehicles (January to March 2017: 66,800 vehicles).
