Mladá Boleslav, 12 March 2015 – Starting point for a new era: Today, the first
third-generation ŠKODA Superb rolled off the production line at the ŠKODA
plant in Kvasiny – a Superb in ‘Business Grey’. The Kvasiny production facilities
have been comprehensively modernised and expanded in readiness for the

“We are delighted that it is now under way. Starting production of the new Superb is a
fantastic and emotional moment for the whole company and in particular, for the Kvasiny
