Skoda Increases Yeti Production To Meet High Demand

While Skoda have expanded their portfolio with the all-new Kodiaq, the brand’s first SUV, the Yeti, is enjoying an unexpected rise in popularity.

In order to keep up with the high demand for the Yeti models in Europe, Skoda is now utilizing the additional production capacities at the Nizhniy Novgorod plant, in Russia, where the compact SUV has been put together since 2012, alongside the Octavia.

We are delighted to be able to deliver as many Skoda Yeti to our customers in Europe as they wish. By using the production capacities of another European plan within our international production network, we can respond satisfactorily to the high demand“, commented by the company’s Board Member for Production and Logistics, Michael Oeljeklaus.

In addition to the Russian manufacturing facility, the Yeti is also assembled in Kvasiny, Czech Republic, at Solomonovo, in Ukraine, at Oskemen / Ust Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, and in Anting, China.

Available since 2009 and with a successor in the pipeline, Skoda has delivered more than 580,000 units of the Yeti worldwide. The vehicle has been available in two versions since 2013, the Yeti and Yeti Outdoor, and in mid-2015, it has been enhanced with five new engines that meet the Euro 6 emission standards.
