Skoda Spain wants to end this year with a 3% market share, which means it grows seven tenths more than in 2019, when it closed at 2.3%, after registering a sales record of 29,388 units.
This “ambitious” objective was announced on Wednesday by the CEO of Skoda Spain, Fidel Jiménez de Parga, in the presentation of the Czech manufacturer’s ECO range and which is composed of the Natural Gas versions of the Kamiq and Scala models , the plug-in hybrids of the Superb and the electric Citigo.
However, he said that everything will depend on how the car market in general evolves during the year.
In this regard, he has warned that, in the international context, the trade war between the United States and China may influence him, and the type of Brexit (the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union) to be applied.
At the national level, Fidel Jiménez de Parga recalled that this year elections will be held in Catalonia, the Basque Country and Galicia, which “does not help to know the national policy” that will be launched, nor does the “bicefalia” that exists in the central government.
With regard to the profitability of the Skoda network in Spain, the manager has stressed that it stood at 2.2% on turnover.
Last year Spain was the eighth world market for Skoda, after climbing one place in the standings, which heads China, followed by Germany and the Czech Republic.
The markets of Russia, England, Poland and France also surpass Spain; whereas, in a classification to ten, they are behind our country Austria and Italy.
