The anniversary vehicle – a third-generation Octavia in ‘Race-Blue’ rolled off the production line recently at the Mladá Boleslav main plant. The Škoda Octavia has been setting standards in the compact segment since 1996 and is by far the brand’s best-selling model.

“Four million Octavias produced – this impressive figure represents the great success of the model and brand,” says Škoda CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. “As the ‘heart of the brand’, the Octavia has decisively shaped Škoda outstanding development and made the company what it is today – an internationally successful manufacturer, present on over 100 markets worldwide. We are continuing this development with the third generation. The new Octavia is once again a winner with its excellent Škoda genes. It is the largest, lightest, safest, most practical, comfortable and environmentally friendly Octavia ever.”

Here in Ireland, more than 42,000 Octavias have reached customers and according to Raymond Leddy, Head of Marketing for Škoda Ireland. Irish customers have grown to love this model in particular.

“The Octavia marked the real turnaround of Škoda in Ireland and to this day remains the core model of our range. We are constantly hearing from customers around the country who have put up extraordinary miles on their cars which is a credit to the car’s reliability and in the used market these cars are still really desirable.”
