ŠKODA Delivers 70,700 Vehicles in August

› Growth in Western and Central Europe, significant increase in India
› Models: Fabia and Superb saloon with high growth rates in Western Europe
› Market conditions in China, Russia and Eastern Europe remain tense

Mladá Boleslav, 7 September 2015 – ŠKODA delivered 70,700 vehicles around
the world in August 2015. The economic situation in China, Russia and Eastern
Europe has led to a decline in overall deliveries by 3.4% compared to last year
(August 2014: 73,200). However, the Czech car manufacturer has recorded
significant growth in Western and Central Europe, India and Turkey. High
growth rates were recorded for the latest generation ŠKODA Fabia (30.3%) and
Superb Hatch (up 132.1%) in Western Europe.

“The overall economic situation in China, Russia and Eastern Europe continues to affect
the automotive markets. The promising developments in Western and Central Europe,
however, have only been able to partly offset the decline in other regions,” explains
Werner Eichhorn, ŠKODA Board Member for Sales and Marketing.

In Western Europe, ŠKODA’s deliveries increased 10.6% to 27,100 in August (August
2014: 24,500). In Germany, the Czech carmaker sold 11,600 vehicles. This represents
an increase of 10.9% compared to August 2014 (10,500) where ŠKODA continues to
hold the number-one position among the imported brands. The manufacturer achieved
double and even triple-digit growth in the markets of Great Britain (3000 vehicles; up
14.3%), Spain (1300 vehicles; up 54.6%), France (1300 vehicles; up 12.7%), Ireland
(500 vehicles; up 35.7%) and Greece (500 vehicles; up 162.8%).

In Russia where the overall market is in decline, ŠKODA recorded 4300 deliveries in
August (August 2014: 6800 vehicles; down 36.3%). In Eastern Europe, excluding
Russia, ŠKODA delivered 2300 vehicles in August (August 2014: 3200; down 28.5%). In
Serbia, the brand’s deliveries increased by double figures (400 vehicles; up 11.0%).
ŠKODA could not evade the weak market in Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

In Central Europe, ŠKODA’s sales soared by 9.3% over the previous year to 12,200
vehicles (August 2014: 11,200 vehicles). The brand recorded double-digit growth in their
home market of the Czech Republic, where deliveries rose by 14.0% to 6700 vehicles
(August 2014: 5900 vehicles). ŠKODA also made double-digit sales increases in Slovakia
(1400 vehicles; up 10.7%) and Hungary (700 vehicles; up 23.1%).

The market situation has remained challenging in China where ŠKODA sold 19,100
vehicles in August (August 2014: 21,600; down 11.4%). However, the brand recorded a
clear increase in sales of 13.4% in India, where 1100 vehicles were delivered following
the 1000 units last August. There was also double-digit growth in Turkey (1400 vehicles;
