Skoda’s 20 millionth vehicle has rolled off the production line at their Kvasiny plant. The milestone vehicle is the all-new Karoq which is expected to come to India to take on the likes of Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson.
Skoda is now aiming for another production and sales record this year. The basis for this is the brand’s Strategy 2025, which will sustainably prepare them for the processes of change in society and the automotive industry.
In 1905, the company started car production in Mlada Boleslav with the Voiturette A that had been developed by the company founders Laurin and Klement. Since then, Skoda has produced 20 million vehicles at its Czech and international plants.
With the Strategy 2025, Skoda is pressing ahead with the electrification of its model range and will offer five purely electric models in various segments by 2025. With the Vision E the manufacturer presented its vision of electric and autonomous driving at the Frankfurt Motor Show recently.
