Škoda Auto produced more than 313,000 battery systems for fully electric cars on the MEB platform and for cars with a plug-in hybrid drive for the cars of the Volkswagen parent concern.
The network of plants producing Škoda models included 11 production sites last year. Last October, the automaker began preparations for the return of production to Kazakhstan. In September, it entered the Vietnamese market, where it will complete the production line this year.
“Last year, we produced more than 888,000 Škoda cars worldwide, which proves our ability to quickly and flexibly adapt to a dynamically changing and geopolitically demanding environment. This success reflects our commitment to customers, the Škoda brand and the concern. Our recent entry into new markets and the addition of local production facilities represent key steps in expanding our global production capacities,” said Škoda Board Member for Production and Logistics Andreas Dick.
At its main plant in Mladá Boleslav last year, the carmaker produced approximately 556,000 cars of the Fabia, Scala, Octavia, Octavia iV, Kamiq, Enyaq and Enyaq Coupé model series.
