Skoda, the Mladá Boleslav-based automaker, is celebrating the production of 750,000th Superb sedan, which rolled off the production line at Kvasiny. Skoda Superb has been the company's flagship vehicle since 2001, and the third-generation of Superb is ready for its launch in June 2015. Underpinning the Volkswagen Groups' latest MQB platform, the new Skoda Superb is expected to be launched at the 2016 Indian Auto Expo in the country.
“Three-quarters of a million ŠKODA Superbs produced – this figure is proof of our flagship’s great success,” says ŠKODA CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. The new Skoda Superb is to be built at the ŠKODA Kvasiny plant as its predecessor. To start production on the latest generation, the manufacturer has invested heavily in new production technologies and assembly & logistics areas. The new model was also showcased at the recently concluded 2015 Shanghai Auto Show in China. The first generation Super lasted from 2001 to 2008, while the second-generation Superb was in production from 2009-2014.
“As one of the best vehicles in the automotive mid-class, the ŠKODA Superb has been synonymous with the highest quality from the Czech Republic for the last 14 years, inspiring customers in Europe as well as in China and other markets overseas. 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.”
