Skoda makes 1.5 million Octavia II units image

The Czech based automaker Skoda has recently announced that 1.5 million units of the Skoda Octavia II have rolled off the production line.

According to the car manufacturer, the vehicle wearing the 1.5 millionth mark on it was a white Skoda Octavia Combi of the ‘GreenLine’ version and the model has recently rolled off the production line at the company’s main factory in Mlada Boleslav. The Skoda Octavia II has been in production ever since 2004, when it replaced the “old” Octavia I model, offering an impressive refinement and economy compared to its predecessor.

“For the past 15 years, the Octavia has been the heart of Skoda brand. It is a true ‘Simply Clever’ vehicle: Spacious, practical, family-friendly and affordable. The model has left an important mark on the rapid rise of our company since the nineties. In particular, the second generation built since 2004 has meant another leap forward for us. The figure of 1.5 million manufactured Octavia II expresses this success in a special way. The Octavia will continue to play a vitally important role in our model range in the future and make a central contribution to our growth strategy 2018”, said the Skoda board member for Production and Logistics, Michael Oeljeklaus.

The Skoda Octavia II is currently being assembled in plants like Mlada Bolesalv and Vrchlabi in Czech Republic, Kaluga in Russia, Aurangabad in India, Ust-Kamenogorsk in Kazakhstan, Bratislava in Slovakia, Solomonovo in Ukraine and since 2007 in China at the Volkswagen Shanghai plant, where it’s being sold under the MingRui name.
