Octavia is brand star
Czech firm Skoda is celebrating the production of its one millionth third-generation Octavia.
The landmark Octavia was produced at Skoda’s main factory in Mlada Boleslav and since the model was introduced in 1996, the car maker has produced five million Octavias in total.
Skoda says the Octavia is its most successful model ever and is now considered as the“heart of the brand”.
Skoda puts its success down to the choice of models available from hatchback to estate and offering front-wheel and all-wheel drive plus the option of the Octavia RS which is fastest series-produced Octavia of all time.
