ŠKODA AUTO delivered a total of 1.24 million vehicles worldwide in 2019. This represents a year-on-year drop of 0.9%, mainly due to the declining overall passenger car market in China. In other markets, ŠKODA increased its deliveries to customers by 5.3% to 960,700 vehicles. In Europe (+ 5.8%) and Russia (+ 8.8%), the carmaker recorded another record year. In December 2019 alone, ŠKODA AUTO increased its deliveries to customers worldwide to 114,700 (+ 9.1%). In 2020, the fourth generation of the OCTAVIA will enter the markets, and the mass production of the first modular electrified platform (MEB) will also be launched.
