Škoda Global Model Production : 2019-20

Škoda production was -24% in 2020, more than I expected. The Czech Rep was hit hard by the coronavirus so that may be the reason. SUV penetration was about the same, something I have noticed with quite a few brands. In addition, 30% production for SUVs isn't that large a figure by 2020 standards. 

The Octavia (picture below) and Scala saloon car models do well for the brand. Even the unusual step taken by VW to combine the Kamiq and Karoq SUVs can't get them above third placing. The tiny Citigo is scarcely registering any volume at all but it remains in the range. The new Enaq electric SUV (pictured above) arrived during the year 2020 and achieved 900 units made. 


  1. Hallo Ray, I am not sure that the figures are correct. Škoda sold over 1 mil cars in 2020. The decline is given by Chinese market, where Škoda is being replaced by Jetta... Strategy of VW group...

  2. Hello Jaroslav. The figures were obtained from the VW Annual Report. It is for production figures, not sales. Production and sales can vary, although not hugely. If factories were not able to produce as much due to Covid issues, sales would be higher than production, but at the expense of inventory.
