The first unit of the revised Škoda Fabia rolled off the production line at Škoda Auto’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav.
The small car impresses with an even more attractive design for the front and rear, including LED lights as well as state-of-the-art technology for comfort and safety. Reliable and efficient 1.0-litre engines make the car even more enjoyable to drive.
Michael Oeljeklaus, Škoda Auto Board Member for Production and Logistics, commented, “Production of the Škoda Fabia began almost 20 years ago in Mladá Boleslav. The latest version of our ever-popular model will now also benefit from the customary high manufacturing and quality standards at Škoda’s main plant. We have given the Škoda Fabia a comprehensive facelift. With its new design and technological features, it is now fit for the future.”
Worldwide, 1,790,000 customers bought a first-generation Fabia, its successor achieved a similarly strong result with 1,710,000 deliveries. In June 2017, the 500,000th third-generation Fabia left the factory in Mladá Boleslav. After the Octavia, the Škoda Fabia is the brand’s second-bestselling model today with more than 4.1 million vehicles delivered. Škoda is offering the small car in two body variants, the Fbia hatchback and the Fabia Combi.
Germany is the most significant sales market for the Škoda Fabia. Since the launch of its first generation in 1999, 761,800 vehicles have been delivered to customers there. With 540,300 deliveries, the Škoda Fabia’s home market, the Czech Republic, follows in second place. The United Kingdom is in third place with 335,200 vehicles delivered so far and Poland in fourth with 314,000. Whilst 78% of customers in the United Kingdom opted for the hatchback model, the Fabia Combi is particularly sought-after in the Czech Republic, just like in Germany, this version accounted for 43% of vehicles delivered.
The Škoda Fabia is expected to continue this success story with several new features.
