The series production of Skoda’s new full-size SUV, the Kodiaq has begun at their Czech plant in Kvasiny. The India-bound model made its debut earlier this year and is among the most anticipated car launches in 2017.
The manufacturing facilities in Kvasiny have been modernised and expanded for the production of Skoda’s latest models including the Kodiaq. The Kvasiny facility is one of Skoda’s three production sites in the Czech Republic. It is currently undergoing the most extensive modernisation and expansion in its history.
Over the next few years, the production capacity of the East Bohemian site will increase to 2.8 lakh vehicles annually. What’s more, Skoda has said it will be investing some 7.2 billion Czech crowns into the expansion of the Kvasiny plant by 2018.
Besides the Kodiaq, the Superb and the Yeti currently run off the production lines at the Kvasiny site. In 2015, around 1.42 lakh Skoda vehicles were produced here.
