Although Skoda is one of the four oldest automakers in the world, it was not until 2006 that Skoda began to make China. Skoda became the third brand of Volkswagen Group to launch production in China after Volkswagen and Audi. In April 2005, coach KODA AUTO partnered with Shanghai Volkswagen Co., Ltd., and in September of the following year, the KODA brand was put into production in Shanghai Volkswagen and announced its Chinese name Skoda.

So far, Skoda's models on sale include Mingrui, Xinrui, Komick, Kroc and Kodiak. Among them, Mingrui, once a popular model under SAIC Skoda, was listed in China in June 2007 and has gone through four generations of models so far. The official map launched this time is the mid-term revamped model of the fourth generation Ming Rui.

At the beginning of the listing of Mingrui, with its atmospheric appearance and solid workmanship, it was sought after by consumers and became a popular model in the joint venture car market. Before 2019, Mingrui had launched several replacement models, and its performance in the market was also commendable. After entering 2019, Skoda brand began to decline in China brand power, and Ming Rui's sales also declined sharply. Especially after entering 2020, Mingrui's sales have entered a low ebb, with sales of 26110 vehicles in 2020 and monthly sales of only about 3000 vehicles.

In order to change the status quo, the new generation of bright sharp listed in May 2021, and changed its name to "bright sharp Pro", the price range is 12.49-157900 yuan. The 1.5L naturally aspirated engine was cancelled and the 1.4T turbocharged engine was replaced with the maximum power 110kW and maximum torque 250N.m, matched with a 7-speed double clutch transmission. However, after the official listing of the new generation of Mingrui, the old Mingrui did not withdraw from the market and still launched a modified model, that is to say, the Mingrui model adopts the mode of selling both new and old models.

SAIC Volkswagen Kodak sold 22809 vehicles in 2023, down 47.53 per cent from 43470 in 2022, according to retail data. Among the subdivided models, the top three models were Cormick, Mingrui and Kodiak, with sales of 7173, 3820 and 3384 respectively. From the analysis of sales data, Skoda's performance in the domestic market is still not optimistic.
