According to the car company’s chairman of the board Klaus Zellmer, the car company achieved impressive results last year despite economic and market difficulties. “Growing demand across our model lines supports our strategy to offer customers a choice between internal combustion, pure electric and hybrid powertrains when transitioning to electric mobility,” said Zellmer. According to him, the car company will start the launch of six new electric cars with the Elroq model this year. “Our business model is stable, even as we remain alert to new challenges in an unpredictable global market,” added Zellmer.

The Enyaq electric model achieved the highest sales since its launch last year. “The Enyaq became the best-selling electric car in the Czech Republic and Slovakia and became among the most requested electric cars in other key European markets, for example in Germany it was the best-selling electric car ever in November and December,” said a member of the board of directors for sales and marketing of Škoda Auto Martin Jahn.

Last September, the car company entered the Vietnamese market, where it wants to exceed the threshold of 40,000 cars sold annually after 2030. The company is also preparing to enter the market in Kazakhstan, where it will start assembling four models, namely Kodiaq, Kamiq, Karoq and Octavia.
