Skoda expands Chinese presence
Skoda plans a network of exclusive Skoda dealers in China, providing both sales and maintenance support. Echoing the words of every other auto industry executive you can think of, Skoda Auto's chairman Detlef Wittig said, "...we see China as one of the strategic markets for the brand's future growth."
Even with the resources of parent Volkswagen, it's hard to imagine how a small automaker like Skoda can establish an independent presence in China, and even harder to see why Volkswagen thinks this is a good idea.
