Skoda Has Produced 11 Million Cars
|   Friday, March 28, 2014
Mladá Boleslav plant is the main pillar of production for Skoda's product offensive, which the Czech Republic manufacturer has launched about three years ago. Almost 10,000 employees are working here for the production of the Skoda Fabia, the new Skoda Octavia as well as the new Skoda Rapid and Skoda Rapid Spaceback. Right now, the plant marks an important moment: it has produced 11 million cars from 1905 until today.

In order to integrate the production of new models, Skoda has launched one of the largest projects of modernization and expansion in the plant's history.
The primary objective was to increase the production capacity of the assembly line, from 800 to 1,200 units per day. Among other things, a new workshop for coachwork has been installed, and a fully automatic dye house for interiors.

The investments are bearing fruit: the new models manufactured at the Mladá Boleslav plant sold very well. With an increase of over 30 percent in Western Europe and Central Europe, the new Skoda Octavia has been a tremendous success in the first two months of 2014.
 
The new Skoda Fabia is available in these versions: Octavia, Octavia Combi, Octavia Combi 4x4, and the powerful Octavia RS. The new Octavia Scout, and the new Octavia G-TEC, with CNG based propulsion will soon follow in 2014.

Production of the new Octavia model for the Chinese market is scheduled for mid 2014. The Skoda models are produced and Nizhny Novgorod and Kaluga in Russia.
It's not even two years after the launch of the new Skoda Rapid and it has already become the third model, in terms of importance for brand. In 2013, Skoda has managed to increase deliveries four times for Skoda Rapid model compared to the previous year. Since the middle of 2013, the Skoda Rapid Spaceback became the first compact hatchback of the brand.

The Mladá Boleslav factory is located on Václav Klement Street, and is the essence of Skoda factories. It is considered the center of the success story spanning the 118 year of company history.

Near the existing production halls, two pioneers of the automobile, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, launched in 1895 the production of bicycles, then motorcycles, and in 1905 they started building cars.

Besides the main factory in the Czech Republic, Skoda also has two manufacturing locations: Kvasiny and Vrchlabi. Skoda Yeti, Superb, Roomster models are manufactured on production lines at Kvasiny. And, the factory in Vrchlabi, currently produces the dual clutch transmission DQ200 for the Volkswagen Group. The manufacturer from the Czech Republic and the Volkswagen Group invested approximately 170 million euro in the production of DSG transmission.

In addition to the production in the country of origin, as part of the global development strategy Skoda focuses on developing local capacity in major markets from developing countries, especially China and Russia.

The Czech company produces cars in partnership with Shanghai Volkswagen (SVW) in factories in Anting, Yizheng and Ningbo from China, where they built far more than one million Skoda cars for the Chinese market.
