Skoda produces 500,000th Octavia

Škoda’s Mladá Boleslav factory has produced the 500,000th Octavia.

The milestone car was a silver Octavia RS 2.0 TFSI.

Horst Mühl, Škoda Auto board member responsible for production and logistics, said: “I wish to point out that besides Mladá Boleslav with 389,697 Octavias produced, those who have helped to achieve this milestone of 500,000 Octavias also include the plants in Vrchlabí and Aurangabad, India (105,080 and 5,223 vehicles, respectively).

“We needed 26 months to manufacture this number of vehicles – the very first vehicle was an Octavia produced on February 2004 in Vrchlabí.”
