ŠKODA is one of the oldest automobile producers in the world.
The first vehicle left our factory in Mladá Boleslav in 1905 and millions of others have followed it throughout the company’s more than one hundred 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.
Two more production plants were established at Kvasiny and Vrchlabí in the Czech Republic (at that time, it was still Czechoslovakia) prior to the Second World War. In recent years, production has especially expanded into the developing markets which account for a large amount of automobile sales: for example, in China, India and Russia. The ŠKODA Citigo vehicles are also newly manufactured at the Volkswagen Concern’s production plant in Bratislava, Slovakia.
