"Producing 20 million cars is a tremendous milestone in our company's history," says ŠKODA AUTO CEO Bernhard Maier.
"We are aiming for another production and sales record this year. The basis for this is our Strategy 2025, which will sustainably prepare ŠKODA AUTO for the processes of change in society and the automotive industry."
"We have 20 million reasons to be proud," says ŠKODA Board Member for Production and Logistics, adding: "This achievement highlights the performance of our Czech and international manufacturing sites and the expertise of our team."
ŠKODA AUTO is one of the longest-established vehicle manufacturers in the world. As early as 1905, the company started car production in Mladá Boleslav with the Voiturette A that had been developed by the company founders Laurin and Klement. Since then, ŠKODA AUTO has produced 20 million vehicles at its Czech and international plants. Then, as now, mobility is at a historical turning point. At the beginning of the 20th century, the triumph of the automobile over other forms of individual transport became apparent and, a little later, mass motorisation started. Today, the automotive industry is facing radical change too. It is characterised by the core topics of electromobility, autonomous driving and connectivity in particular.
With the 2025 Strategy, the long-established Czech brand is very well prepared for these challenges. ŠKODA AUTO is vigorously pressing ahead with the electrification of its model range and will offer five purely electric models in various segments by 2025. With the ŠKODA VISION E the manufacturer presented its vision of electric and autonomous driving at the IAA in Frankfurt.
In the coming years, ŠKODA AUTO will continue its growth strategy. The growth strategy is currently driven by the SUV campaign that was started last year. The latest coup is the new ŠKODA KAROQ, which will set new benchmarks in the dynamically growing SUV segment. The new ŠKODA KAROQ is appeared in Ukraine at the first half of 2018.
