Škoda reaches new milestone with Yeti

Škoda has produced its 100,000th at the brand's plant in Kvasiny, Czech Republic. The Yeti has been in production for two years. Besides the Kvasiny factory where British-built Yetis are produced, production has also been taking place in the Indian city of Aurangabad since 2010. Furthermore, the vehicle is also assembled in the SKD procedure in the Russian city of Kaluga.

In the first quarter of 2011, sales figures rose 34% compared to the previous year, to 22,100 units. In 2010, the marque delivered 52,600 Yetis to customers.

“The Yeti is a great success for Škoda,” 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 internationalization of Škoda.”
