Success story: FABIA deliveries exceed 4.5 million

› The FABIA is the second most produced ŠKODA model after the OCTAVIA
› For 22 years, the series has been an important cornerstone of the ŠKODA model range

Mladá Boleslav, 16 August 2021 – Twenty-two years after the FABIA’s market launch, ŠKODA continues to build on the success of this popular small car with its fourth generation. After the OCTAVIA, the FABIA is the second most produced ŠKODA model and an important cornerstone for the Czech car manufacturer. More than 4.5 million units of the hatchback variant and the FABIA COMBI have been delivered to date.

Since its launch in 1999, the ŠKODA FABIA has been one of the bestselling vehicles in its class. It was a very appealing model from the outset, boasting generous amounts of space despite compact exterior dimensions, offering the highest levels of safety, functionality and efficiency, and representing excellent value for money. This successful formula made the ŠKODA entry-level model an attractive choice for a wide range of customers for more than two decades.



In approximately eight years, as many as 1.79 million first-generation FABIAs, which were also available as an estate from 2000, were delivered. The second generation was unveiled at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show and had a total of 1,704,000 buyers. The third generation, presented in 2014, continued this momentum and, in 2019, was the second most delivered ŠKODA model after the OCTAVIA.

Overall deliveries of the FABIA exceed 4.5 million vehicles to date – a figure that is only surpassed in the ŠKODA range by the OCTAVIA. The largest single market for the FABIA is Germany, with 18,070 deliveries in 2020, ahead of the Czech Republic (17,750), Poland (12,556) and the UK (9,771).
