Best-selling model on the market:
The very high number of cars per capita is a result of the country’s tax policy, which motivates companies to offer company cars to their employees. Currently, the small SUV segments are growing significantly and, thus, there are more and more electric models. At present, the plug-in hybrid and pure battery cars make up 20 percent of the market.
ŠKODA AUTO in Belgium
A typical customer of the ŠKODA brand in Belgium is a family that has a relatively high education and income, lives in a suburban area and commutes to work in the city. Over the past five years, the sales network in the country has undergone significant restructuring and optimisation, which will only continue. The Czech carmaker has a long tradition in Belgium, and the importing of cars was maintained even at the time of the Iron Curtain. In the 1990s, the country’s market position was also helped by the fact that Belgians Dirk van Braeckel and Luc Donckerwolke were the designers of the first generation of the OCTAVIA and FABIA models.
