Skoda Auto India has announced their sales results for August 2022. In August of this year, the Indian subsidiary of this Czech carmaker sold 4,222 units, a 10% increase over the same period last year, when it sold 3,829 vehicles. The company's consistent sales success can be credited to new product introductions such as the Slavia sedan and the Kushaq mid-size SUV.
Also, Skoda India sold 37,568 cars in the first eight months of 2022, the company's highest-ever sales number in a calendar year in its 20-year history, with more than a quarter still to go. This makes 2022 the most critical year for Skoda Auto in India. The company's previous high was 34,678 units sold in 2012.
It is worth noting that, while Skoda experienced good YoY growth, its MoM figures fell, albeit by a tiny amount. On a month-to-month basis, its sales dropped by 5% to 4,447 vehicles in July 2022. Aside from the Kushaq and Slavia, Skoda reports that the Octavia, Superb, and Kodiaq are also performing well in their respective sectors.
"All of my communication this year has been about making 2022 the Biggest Year," stated Zac Hollis, Brand Director, SKODA AUTO India. And now we've finished. This is a watershed moment for SKODA AUTO in India and worldwide. This accomplishment is due to our teams, partners, and, most importantly, our consumers and fans.
"Their trust in our brand has made this feat possible," he continued. Moving forward, we anticipate more mountains to scale and horizons to conquer."
