January 2022 auto sales: Skoda records a 7% drop from December 2021 to 3,009 units

Skoda Auto India released monthly sales figures for January 2022, and the company’s total sales stood at 3,009 units. Compared to the 3,234 vehicles sold in December 2021, the Czech automaker recorded a monthly decline of almost 7% in January. However, compared to the 1,004 units sold a year ago in January 2021, Skoda saw a threefold increase in sales, registering an annual growth of almost 200%. However, we must take into account that the market situation in January 2021 was much worse than this year and that the company’s current high-volume product, the Skoda Kushaq, was also not on sale. Thus, this meteoric growth is only a one-off anomaly.

In January 2022, Skoda also launched its flagship, the Kodiaq facelift, and it is already sold out for the whole year

Commenting on the company’s sales performance, Zac Hollis, Brand Director, Skoda Auto India, said: “The continued growth in our sales volumes is a great statement for our entire team and reflects the confidence our customers have in in U.S. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the year and it gives us the momentum to achieve the goals we have set for 2022. We look forward to the rest of the year and are excited about the upcoming launch of Slavia, who together with Kushaq will drive our volumes forward in the future.”

In January 2022, Skoda also launched its flagship, the Kodiaq facelift. The premium three-row SUV comes in three trim levels, and is priced between ₹35 lakh to ₹37.50 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The Kodiaq was certainly a highly anticipated model as it is already sold out for the whole year.
