Carmaker SKODA delivered 1 038 500 vehicles to its clients globally in 10M 2018, up 6.1% y/y. Deliveries grew in Europe (+4.3%), China (+12.5%), Russia (+28.7%) and India (+2.4%). The result was driven primarily by the OCTAVIA models. Carmaker ŠKODA AUTO has informed that in October alone the brand delivered 99,400 cars (down 7.4%). The current development of car deliveries on the European market is influenced by the ongoing migration of all model families on to the new WLTP testing cycle. ŠKODA car deliveries are affected also by the decline on the Chinese passenger car market.
