Skoda marks 10m milestone in Czech Republic image

The Czech based automaker Skoda has just celebrated the ten millionth car that came off the assembly line at the local plant in Mlada Boleslav, with the landmark model being a white Fabia Monte Carlo, which will be exhibited at the Skoda Automobile Museum.

“Ten million Skoda automobiles produced in Mlada Boleslav alone are a testimony for the power of the automobile industry and engineering skills in the Czech Republic. We are proud of more than 100 years of automobile manufacture in the heart of Europe. It is proof of the strength of our brand. Since 1905, when the automobile pioneers Vaclav Laurin and Vaclav Klement started to manufacture vehicles, cars made in the Czech Republic and by Skoda have enjoyed an excellent reputation with customers all over the world”, said the company’s chairman of the board, Winfried Vahland.

Skoda seems to be on top of the wave and since it became a Volkswagen sub-brand the Czech automaker managed to quadruple its worldwide sales figures. The model range has grown from one to a total of seven model series since 1991 and the manufacturer enjoys its international success in more than 100 markets today.
