Skoda milestone – 14 millionth car image

The Czech based automaker Skoda is currently celebrating a milestone, with 14 million cars made since 1905.

According to the car manufacturer, the model wearing the “14 millionth tag” on it is the brand new Skoda Superb, which is coming in the Laurin & Klement special edition. Skoda says that the “highlighted” model has rolled off the production line at the Czech plant in Kvasiny.

“This jubilee is an impressive expression of our growth strategy. 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”, said the Skoda chairman of the board, Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland.

With the announcement saying that almost two thirds of the milestone production were made by Skoda in the past 20 years, the company seems to be on top of the wave, and this latest model, to roll off the production line, the new Suberb 2.0 TDI in the Laurin & Klement special edition, is waiting to be delivered to a German customer. Skoda seems to be on its way to achieving the 1.5 million annual sales target by 2018, after in 2011 the company managed to deliver 879.200 vehicles, a record for the manufacturer.
