Skoda's manufacturing plant in Kvasiny has produced to 100,000th Skoda Yeti in only two years. Alongside production in Kvasiny, where all UK Skoda Yetis are built, production has also been underway in Aurangabad since 2010 as well as being assembled in the SKD procedure in Kalgua, Russia.
"The Yeti is a great success for Skoda," says Michael Oeljeklaus, the board member for the area of production. "The fact that we have already cracked the threshold of 100,000 vehicles produced after only two years firmly emphasizes that. The Yeti is one of the best offerings in the market with regard to the popular compact SUV segment. The Yeti plays an important role for our growth strategy. That's why we have decided to produce in China as well from 2013. The manufacture in Shanghai will provide the Yeti with another boost and will make an important contribution toward the internationalisation of Skoda."
The Skoda Yeti was introduced to market in 2009, and has seen sales figures rise 34%, to 22,100 units in the first four months of 2011 compared to the same time during the previous year. 52,600 Skoda Yetis were delivered to customers in 2010.
The Skoda is available in both front wheel drive and 4x4 all-wheel drive, it is also available in the environmentally friendly GreenLine version as well, and offers five star NCAP Euro rating.Published 3 June 2011
