The first vehicle left our factory in Mladá Boleslav in 1905 and millions of others have followed it throughout the company’s more than 120 years of existence. The company’s registered office and automobile development department have remained in the company’s home town, but production has also spread to many other places, cities and countries over time.
Mladá Boleslav is a hive of technical development. A place where models are crafted and put into full-scale production. The city hosting the company’s production facilities is also home to its headquarters. ŠKODA currently manufactures the FABIA, RAPID and OCTAVIA models here.
This plant is the baby in ŠKODA’s family of production facilities in the Czech Republic. This is the place where production lines build the company’s flagship – the SUPERB and both the ŠKODA’s SUVs - KAROQ and KODIAQ.
Since 2012, the Vrchlabí has been turning out highly sophisticated DSG automatic gearboxes for the entire VW Group.
In recent years, manufacturing operations have been expanded on other markets, such as China, India, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Algeria. The ŠKODA CITIGO is made at Volkswagen’s plant in Bratislava, Slovakia.
