Skoda’s most premium offerings in India Kodiaq SUV and Superb sedan see massive growth in sales last month

Skoda’s seven-seat premium SUV Kodiaq and the luxury sedan Superb, have both posted a positive YoY growth in terms of sales last month, as compared to November 2018. The two cars are the most premium cars in Skoda India’s lineup.

The Czech carmaker managed to sell 157 units of the Kodiaq SUV last month, as against the 127 units the manufacturer sold in October 2019. This has resulted in a year-on-year growth in sales by 24%. However, Skoda sold 23 additional Kodiaqs in October 2019, which means it suffered a MoM degrowth of 13%.

On the other hand, Skoda retailed 167 units of Superb in November 2019, compared to just 77 units of the car sold in the same month last year, leading to a YoY growth of 117% in terms of sales.
