Recent sales numbers have been released and it seems Skoda UK sold 23,248 cars in the first half of 2010. This is a sales increase of 61 percent in the UK compared to this time last year. And, almost half of the units sold were sold to new Skoda customers.
Here at home, 5743 new vehicles were delivered in June, a 16.6 percent increase on 2009 numbers. Globally, 378,747 vehicles were sold in the first half of 2010 too, an overall increase of roughly 15 percent on last year’s sales.
Skoda Uk Director, Robert Hazelwood, said in a recent headlineauto report,
“We have sold 61 percent more cars in the first half of this year than compared to 2009, making the first half of 2010 the most successful six-month trading period in Skoda UK’s history.”
Although this news may not seem very close to home, if sales of a product sold in Australia are on the rise, regardless of where the sales are made, more revenue is made by the company. More revenue heightens the ability for further expansion and development within production. This can also result in even better products for all the consumers, and, possibly, greater deals presented by the company.
