Skoda completes the sale of Yeti crossovers in Russia


Crossover Skoda Yeti leaves the world market, so it is logical that its sales are gradually declining, also in Russia. However, in our market it became noticeable in May of 2018: there were sold 252 units for the last month, which is less by 51.7% than in April of this year. And in relation to the "peak" February, the result decreased more than three times.

The contract assembly of the Skoda Yeti model at GAZ was stopped at the beginning of February of 2018. So during the last five months dealers sell out vehicles from warehouse, which managed to get off the assembly line of Nizhny Novgorod plant. In June, the result of the Yeti in the Russian market will also be low. According to the representative of the Russian office of Skoda, to date, there are about a hundred cars left in the warehouses.

Interestingly, despite the May decline, for five months of 2018, sales of Skoda Yeti increased in general in compare with January-May of last year, an increase was 24%. This can be explained by the price of the model, which has not changed since June 2017, while many automakers changed price tags both in the beginning of the year and in the spring after the fall of the ruble. In general, such "stretched" sales of warehouses can play the Czech brand on hand: the solution for sales of the crossover Skoda Karoq in Russia is still not accepted, which means that if Yeti left completely the market, it will be a void in the segment.

Let's note, the Russian representation still do not comment the possible leaving of our market by this car (and its production in Russia), but the dealers noted that Karoq definitely should not be waited until the end of this year. Recall, the crossover Skoda Karoq was introduced in May of 2017, in other markets it comes to replace the Yeti. The car is built on the MQB platform.
