750,000th Skoda Superb Rolls Off The Production Line

Skoda reached an important milestone this week with the production of the 750,000th Superb at its Kvasiny plant.

First launched in 2001, the Skoda Superb has served as the Czech’s automaker flagship for the last 14 years and has been considered one of the most important models in Skoda’s line-up. The combination of plenty of interior space with Group VW’s latest technologies has allowed the Superb to be considered one of the key players in its segment.

Skoda CEO, Winfried Vahland said: “It is based on this success that we are entering a new era with the third generation of the model. Our entire model range has taken on a whole new meaning in terms of technology, value, design and emotional appeal. The new ŠKODA Superb surpasses everything that ŠKODA has ever produced, and points to the future of the brand.”

The third generation is set for launch in June this year, with Skoda planning to start producing it in China as well. The new Skoda Superb, which is based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, is up to 75kg lighter  when compared to its predecessor despite the bigger dimensions and offers the choice of five TSI petrol engines and three TDI diesels with the range-topping Superb sporting a turbocharged 2.0-litre TSI with 276hp, a DSG gearbox and all-wheel drive as standard.
