Skoda China Sales Figures & Recent Highlights
Škoda Auto, commonly referred to as Škoda, is a Czech automobile manufacturer founded in 1895. It became a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group in 1991. In China, Škoda has established a significant presence since entering the market, and it’s an essential part of the brand’s global strategy. Škoda entered the Chinese market in 2007 and quickly became an essential pillar for the brand’s global sales. China has consistently been Škoda’s largest individual market worldwide since then.
Škoda operates in China through a joint venture with SAIC Motor Corporation Limited, one of China’s largest automotive companies. This joint venture, SAIC Volkswagen, produces both Volkswagen and Škoda models. To cater to the preferences of Chinese consumers, Škoda has introduced models specifically tailored to the local market. Some of these models are exclusively available in China. The brand has had success with models like the Superb, Kodiaq, and Kamiq, among others.
Recognizing the importance of the Chinese market, Škoda has made efforts to localize its products and strategies to better resonate with local consumers. This includes longer versions of certain models and features tailored to Chinese tastes. While Škoda has seen success in China, it also faces challenges. The Chinese auto market is highly competitive, with numerous international and domestic brands competing for market share.
