Skoda is making numbers speak for its undervalued and not much appreciated model Fabia. The vehicle was always not preferred as compared to its quite attractive cousins such as Volkswagen Polo and the Seat Ibiza.
And now after rolling out the three millionth unit of fabulous Fabia from its Mlada Boleslav manufacturing unit based in Czech Republic, Skoda is proclaiming the high value of its amazing hatchback. The significant 3rd millionth unit of Fabia was a green light variant and it is rolled out with few minor mechanical and visual alterations. The changes make the special variant come with better fuel economy and slashed emission rates. This very unique Skoda Fabia model will be exported to a German customer, as confirmed by the company.
Skoda Fabia was introduced way back in 1999 and thereafter it was blessed with new designs for further being globally launched in 2007, making its way to Indian auto market as well. Since the unveiling, Skoda has developed more than 1.2 million units of Fabia from its production plants based in various countries such as India, China, Russia and Czech Republic.
Skoda Fabia model is shipped to 103 countries and individually it accounts for around 25% of Skoda’s total sales globally. The vehicle is sold in hatchback and estate version plus it is the second bestselling car for the company after Octavia.
Though not making wondrous sales count in the domestic auto market, Skoda Fabia certainly stands unique in the country. So, now Skoda is planning a new version of Fabia with the VW’s MQB platform.
