Skoda is joining a growing number of automakers in Europe that will sell their cars through the direct-sales agency model.
As with other agency retail models, dealers will now sell vehicles on behalf of the manufacturer, rather than purchasing the vehicles directly.
The new sales model is expected to offer financial returns to dealers that are similar to those they have experienced under the current system.
"The planned remuneration allows partners to achieve a similar return as in previous years, if we disregard the past two years. Skoda partners' returns have always been better than those of comparable volume competitors," Jan-Hendrik Huelsmann, Skoda's head of Germany, said, without commenting specifically on the commission level.
All VW brands will rely on a similarly high remuneration for the agency model of about 6.5 percent, which will avoid cannibalization within the group.
