Automotive producer Škoda Auto delivered a record 1,055,500 vehicles to customers in 2015, marking year on year growth of 1.8 percent from 1,037,200.
The company said it experienced the best December in its history. The last month of the year saw it sell 86,600 units, a 5.7 percent improvement on December 2014.
Not even the Volkswagen emissions-cheat scandal which broke out in September could put much of a dent in the success story of Škoda (the company, owned by VW, says some of its vehicles were equipped with the software at the centre of the affair). “Škoda in 2015, amid demanding market conditions, proved its strength,” said company CEO Bernhard Maier.
