Czech carmaker Skoda reports 4.1% drop in global deliveries in August
Czech carmaker Skoda Auto reported 4.1% decrease in deliveries to customers around the world in August selling 88,100 cars, CTK – Business News reported. The slide came due to the shrinking Chinese market where Skoda sold 22,100 cars in August, or by 23.8% less than the same month of 2018. Nonetheless the stable growth of sales in Europe managed to curb the overall decline, despite the poor performance on Skoda’s main Market -- China.
CTK detailed that in Western Europe, Skoda delivered 33,800 vehicles in August, up 6.7% y/y. Skoda’s deliveries to Germany, its second-largest single market, increased by 5.6% y/y to 13,800 cars.
Skoda remains upbeat for the coming months, relying on the launch of new city SUV Skoda Kamiq on European markets. Skoda sold 1.25 million cars worldwide last year.Original source: CTK – Business News
