Speaking about the sales performance, Piyush Arora, Managing Director, Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Private Limited, said that with the auto company's robust half-yearly sales, it is scripting a new success story in India. "Our strong brand portfolio is performing exceptionally well across market segments, with our INDIA 2.0 cars driving significant volumes for the Group," he further said.

Arora also said that the growth in sales is supported by other important markers as well, further adding, “We achieved 100 per cent growth in production and 35 per cent growth in exports during this period."

The supply chain disruption impacted the automaker severely just like other brands. Speaking about that, he said, "While we are confident of maintaining this momentum, we continue to grapple with the challenges caused by the geopolitical instability, and continued semiconductor shortages which are upsetting the supply chain."
