Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

Today Skoda surpassed another landmark by manufacturing the 4,000,000th unit of the Skoda Octavia at its main plant in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic. The anniversary vehicle was a third-generation model in ‘Race-Blue’ color. The Octavia has been in production since 1996 and is by some margin the brand’s best-selling car.

Skoda Chairman Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland –

Four million Octavias produced – this impressive figure represents the great success of the model and brand”. As the ‘heart of the brand’, the Octavia has decisively shaped ŠKODA’s outstanding development and made the company what it is today – an internationally successful manufacturer, present on over 100 markets worldwide.

In the press release, Skoda stresses on how the car’s elegant design, good space, high functionality, modern technology, quality, precision and value for money have paved the road to success.

The Octavia is Skoda’s best selling car in its 118-year history.

Turning the pages of history, we learn that the Skoda Octavia was the first fully new model that marked the start of the partnership between Skoda and Volkswagen in 1996. 38% of the brand’s sales since that time have come from the Octavia, which makes it the undisputed best seller in the company’s 118 year history.

Besides Mlada Boleslav, the Octavia is made in India (Aurangabad), Russia (Nizhny Novgorod), Ukraine (Solomonovo) and Kazakhstan (Ust-Kamenogorsk).

Skoda have added three new members to the Octavia family this year through the vRS, Combi and Combi vRS. The vRS is the fastest Skoda in history with a top speed of 248kph.

The Octavia is predicted to continue playing an important hand in the Czech brand’s goal of selling 1.5 million cars per year by 2018.
