Skoda achieved record sales in April, selling 2,819 cars. Sales were up 43.1% compared to April 2000.
The company puts the success in part down to the popularity of its diesel-engined models, which accounted for 39% of April sales. Skoda offers TDI and SDI models.
In April Fabia accounted for 1,855 sales, including 505 of the newly launched Fabia Estate. Octavia sales totalled 953, including 336 estates. The remaining sales were Felicia and commercial vehicles.
Year-to-date sales are 12,776, 35.6% up on the same period in 2000.
