As Jeremy Clarkson proved in the first episode of Top Gear Season 16, Skoda Yeti is more practical than a Maybach, faster than a Ferrari, and tougher than the fire brigade! Maybe that’s why they’ve sold 100,000 units in just two years.
Skoda currently makes the Yeti at Kvasiny in the Czech Republic, the Indian city of Aurangabad and assembles in the SKD procedure in the Russian city of Kaluga. From 2013 the Yeti will be produced in China as well. The car is a very nice all-rounder is available with 4×4 all-wheel drive or with front wheel drive. The Yeti is also available in the environmentally friendly GreenLine II version.
The car has also received five stars in the European crash test Euro NCAP.
“The Yeti is a great success for Škoda,” says Michael Oeljeklaus, the board member for the area of production. “The fact that we have already cracked the threshold of 100,000 vehicles produced after only two years firmly emphasizes that. The Yeti is one of the best offerings in the market with regard to the popular compact SUV segment. The Yeti plays an important role for our growth strategy. That’s why we have decided to produce in China as well from 2013. The manufacture in Shanghai will provide the Yeti with another boost and will make an important contribution toward the internationalization of Škoda.”
