With almost 700 000 cars sold in the world of which nearly 20 000 in France, Skoda is a serious customer on the passenger car market. Free from the image of an old-fashioned Eastern European car, the emblem of planned economy, the winged arrow brand has succeeded its conversion. Its leitmotiv: offering a quality car and services at a reasonable expense. The group's sales strategy is directed towards families in the MPV segment and to small city cars with the Fabia and Roomster models.
