Skoda more than tripled its electric car sales in 2021

2021 has been a very difficult year for Skoda (part of the Volkswagen Group), which saw 878,200 car deliveries worldwide, down 12.6% year-on-year. The decline is associated with the shortage of semiconductors as the first half of the year was positive.

Despite this, sales of all-electric cars from Skoda are booming with a total of around 49 100 units in 2021, i.e. 222.9% more than a year ago. This is the third highest result of the Volkswagen Group, after the brands Volkswagen (263,200) and Audi (81,900).

100% electric cars represent approximately 5.6% of Skoda’s total volume worldwide, which isn’t bad considering they were only sold in Europe.

In particular, the last three quarters of the year were very strong with a new record of 17,000 units in the fourth quarter of 2021 (up 198% year-on-year):

Thomas Schäfer, CEO of ŠKODA AUTO, said:

“2021 was one of the most difficult years in the history of ŠKODA AUTO. The COVID-19 pandemic and the shortage of semiconductors have significantly slowed our growth. Thanks to the flexibility and ingenuity of the he ŠKODA team, together with the close cooperation with our social partner KOVO and our suppliers, we managed to run the company successfully throughout the year and achieve a respectable result.

We expect the semiconductor supply situation to ease gradually in the second half of the year. I look ahead with confidence; we have many new products in the works, including the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV, we are experiencing very high customer demand and we have a very motivated team. In the long term, the company is in an excellent position to emerge stronger from the transformation process thanks to our NEXT LEVEL – SKODA STRATEGY 2030.”

Skoda’s BEV range consists of just two models – the Skoda ENYAQ IV (a cousin of the Volkswagen ID.4) and the Skoda CITIGOe iV (a direct counterpart to the Volkswagen e-up! and SEAT Mii Electric).

While the Skoda Enyaq iV is growing at full speed (44,700 units), the Skoda CITIGOe iV is actually retired/limited (4,400 units and down 70.8%), around 10 times less than the Volkswagen e -up! (41,400).
