A Very Special Arrival
Whenever we see a group of sales execs in an excited huddle in the showroom we know that a new Skoda model has arrived. And that’s understandable - all new Skoda launches generate a buzz around the business.However, when the first new Octavia landed , we noticed a slightly different pattern of behaviour altogether…This time we saw them standing in groups for longer than usual looking longingly at its sleek new lines. We saw them taking it in turns to sit in the drivers seat and grip the steering wheel. We saw them flipping the bonnet up to see what was under the hood, and then checking out the boot space. And finally we saw them racing upstairs to John's office to ask about the new demo allocation.I think we can all agree that the Octavia didn’t really have anything to prove. Its fan base was already established with over 6.5 million sold worldwide since its introduction in 1996, representing nearly a third of all Skoda sales.
