It Began SUPERB

The story of the ŠKODA brand at this factory began in 1947. And the start was more than good! After all, the first vehicle which came off the line was the then-flagship model, the SUPERB. The SUPERB began its great journey for the brand with a winged arrow on its bow. In the following years, models like the FELICIA (1958 through 1964), the beloved 110 R COUPE (1970 to 1980) rolled out of the gates of the factory, as well as another typological novelty for the domestic market, the practical PICK-UP (1995 to 2001) and a little later, the family MPV ROOMSTER or the first SUV from ŠKODA, the YETI. However, we must not forget about the shiniest local gem. Yes, here the circle closes and the renewed flagship SUPERB returns to the scene in the first of its so-called generation.

It Continues SUPERB

But we are already returning to the red-hot present. In Kvasiny, they continuously connect with their famous history and today they are making various models from the ŠKODA portfolio. Specifically, the aforementioned SUPERB and the SUVs KODIAQ and KAROQ.

Modernization is, in All Aspects, “Superb”

The eastern Bohemian factory of the ŠKODA brand is truly undergoing the biggest modernization in its history. Total investments from 2014-2017 for the manufacture of the SUV will reach an impressive 7 billion Czech crowns. Thanks to this, the factory will be able to increase its production capacity from its rough current amount of 170 000 to more than 300 000 vehicles a year.

Kvasiny is becoming an important center for the global development of the ŠKODA brand. This is confirmed by a the words of member of the ŠKODA AUTO board of directors, Michael Oeljeklaus, who is responsible for the spheres of manufacturing and logistics:

“Kvasiny is a top factory with a long tradition and excellent and highly-qualified employees,” says Michael Oeljeklaus. “As an important production pillar, our plant in Kvasiny significantly contributes to the production targets defined in our Strategy 2025. In the coming years, the yearly volume of production will continue to increase. To this end, we are investing heavily at this site, and we are building a competency center for the manufacturing of vehicles outside of the SUV category from Kvasiny,” added Oeljeklaus.
