1.5 Million Reasons To Be Proud

The 1.5-millionth third-generation Octavia rolled off the production line at the brand’s Mladá Boleslav plant.

The facelifted version of ŠKODA’s bestseller impressed with re-designed front and rear sections as well as state-of-the-art driver assistance systems, infotainment and connectivity and over five million customers worldwide have chosen the Octavia since it was launched 21 years ago.

“With the Octavia, the development of our company really gathered pace from 1996,” said Michael Oeljeklaus, Board Member for Production and Logistics. “It has been an important pillar of the ŠKODA portfolio for over two decades. With the third generation of our bestseller, we have seamlessly built on the success story of the first two editions.

“Much of the credit for the success of the Octavia and the ŠKODA brand goes to our motivated and highly-skilled workforce, which now has 1.5 million reasons to be proud of its achievements,” added Oeljeklaus.
