Ukraine’s Eurocar has assembled and sold 2,010 Skoda cars in 2002, plans to sell more than 7,000 in 2003 and aims to reach a market share of 6% in Ukraine in 2003, up from its current 4%, general director Oleg Boyarin told a conference Wednesday, Dow Jones said.

Eurocar, which assembles Octavia and Fabia A-class cars, will start making the C-class Skoda Superb in a few months, the news agency noted.

“First Skoda didn’t trust us with the high-end car, but the two other models were so successful, that they have changed their minds,” a spokeswoman told Dow Jones. Eurocar is also in negotiations to assemble Audi cars, but no agreement has yet been reached, she added.
