Škoda sales fell 6.6% in May
Škoda Auto delivered a total of 104,900 vehicles to customers in May. Compared to the same month last year, this represents a decline of 6.6% (in May 2018 it was just 112,400 vehicles). The main reason for this development is the current situation in the Chinese car market overall. In Europe, the manufacturer increased deliveries in Austria (+21.9%), Hungary (+20.5%), Germany (+8.4%), and the Netherlands (+6.2%), despite the generally declining market trend in these regions. Škoda posted double-digit growth in Russia and reported that the Octavia is its bestseller. But the company now sees its future growth in new models such as the Scala, its upgraded Superb and the new electric car it's developed.
