Skoda Builds 14 Millionth Vehicle

Skoda’s 14 millionth vehicle rolled off the production line at the Kvasiny plant in Czechoslovakia today.

The special edition ‘Laurin & Klement’ Superb special edition has already been sold to a customer in Germany, who’ll receive the car in the next two weeks.

“This celebratory car is an impressive expression of our growth strategy,” says Skoda chairman, Prof. Winfried Vahland.

“We are expanding at a high speed. Almost two thirds of the 14 million cars built by the company were produced and sold in the past 20 years, four million of which were produced in the past 5 years alone.

“We thank the entire Skoda team which has made this development possible and which can rightly be proud of its achievement,”

This extraordinary expansion of sales in the last five years is explained by Skoda’s strategy to produce 1.5 million vehicles per year by 2018.

Production numbers are even more impressive when you consider that between 1905 and 1991, 5 million vehicles were produced, but between 1991 and 2012, another 10 million vehicles were delivered to customers.
