Kushaq SUV helps Skoda post 282% increase in August sales

Skoda Auto on Wednesday has announced that it sold 3,829 units of passenger cars in India in August 2021. This marked 282% sales growth for the company last month, compared to the same month a year ago. Skoda Auto registered 1,003 cars in August 2020.

Skoda claims the sales growth in August 2021 was fuelled by the Skoda Kushaq SUV. Besides that, Superb, Octavia and Rapid too brought significant numbers for the brand.

In terms of month-on-month sales too, Skoda Auto has recorded 24% growth in August. In July this year, the Czech auto brand recorded 3,080 units. The sales boost comes on the back of the low base of last year, pent up demand and increased demand for personal vehicles.
