Rigorous tests under extreme conditions

The new generations of Škoda’s Superb and Kodiaq model series have successfully completed an intensive international test programme. Over a period of two years, they covered more than a million kilometres. The test drives exposed the cars to temperatures of -30 °C as well as almost 50 °C in the Arizona desert.

Moreover, Škoda Auto had them towing trailers on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road and tested various charging infrastructures. With numerous additional endurance and material assessments on test rigs and in the laboratory, Škoda simulates 40 years of real-world vehicle use.

Testing in the Arctic Circle

The new generations of Škoda’s Superb and Kodiaq models have successfully passed intensive cold testing in the Arctic Circle. The vehicles’ functions, quality and durability were assessed in temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius.

The main focus of these tests was on driving stability, passenger comfort in icy conditions and overall reliability during long winter journeys. In addition, the vehicles had to withstand the extra weight of ice and snow. Every part of the test vehicles was scrutinised: chassis, body, engine, heating, and the entire electrical system.

Preparations in full swing

Škoda Auto is investing 12 million euros in converting the production line in Kvasiny to also take account of future requirements, with the line already being prepared to produce the Kodiaq iV with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.

The first pilot production vehicles are already being produced, while series production will commence in 2024. Up to 410 second-generation Kodiaqs should then roll off the assembly line every day.

The success story

The Kodiaq, launched in 2016 to spearhead Škoda’s successful SUV campaign, has already sold more than 740,000 units. Optionally available with seven seats, it introduced Škoda’s exciting, crystalline design language to the SUV segment. The sporty Kodiaq RS followed in 2018, while the entire model range was updated in 2021. More than 40 international awards are visible proof of the large Škoda SUV’s outstanding qualities and extraordinary popularity.
