Three Millionth Skoda Fabia Produced


Skoda’s ongoing growth continues as the Czech car maker reaches a new milestone in production.

SKODA has built the three-millionth Fabia. The anniversary vehicle – a white SKODA Fabia GreenLine – rolled off the assembly line at the main plant in Mlada Boleslav today. The particularly efficient and thus environmentally-friendly version of the Fabia was ordered by a customer in Germany. The popular compact car by the Czech auto manufacturer has been on the market since 1999. Overall, a total of 1,788,063 first generation SKODA Fabias as well as another 1,211,937 second generation SKODA Fabias have been manufactured.

Skoda’s success is expected to go even further as they announced new partnerships and new plans to expand business in Chinese market and other populated countries.

Skoda press release:

“The SKODA Fabia has a great share in SKODA’s fast success story and plays a central role for our Growth Strategy 2018 as well,” emphasizes SKODA’s chairman of the board, Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. “Thirteen years ago, the vehicle marked another milestone for our company as the third model series at the time. Since then, we have not just produced three million SKODA Fabias, but also more than doubled the annual sales of our entire model range. These figures are a powerful testimony to the success of the model in the international markets and to the development of the brand,” continues Vahland.

At the present time, the SKODA Fabia is built in the Czech Republic, China, Russia and India and sold in about 103 countries worldwide. Since the year 2007, SKODA has also been offering the compact car in the environmentally-friendly GreenLine version. Thanks to technical innovations such as the automatic start-stop system and the brake energy recuperation, the SKODA Fabia GreenLine only needs 3.4 liter diesel for 100 kilometers. The CO2 emissions of the modern 1.2 TDI CR DPF / 55 kW diesel engine amount to just 89 g/km.

With its two versions – hatchback and station wagon – the SKODA Fabia has also been providing the basis for attractive special models time and again. Thus, paying homage to the brand’s successes in motor sports, SKODA launched the sporty version Fabia Monte Carlo in the market in 2011. SKODA Motorsport used the rally vehicle SKODA Fabia Super 2000 for its victory of the rally world championship and the championship victory in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge IRC in 2011.

The first SKODA Fabia generation celebrated its premiere in 1999 and was produced for eight years. The second generation of the compact car was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2007. Sales of the vehicle began in April 2007, first as the hatchback version that was later followed by the station wagon. Both body versions were given extensive facelifts in early 2010.
