Škoda Auto has launched production of the new models of the all-new Kodiaq, Scala, and Kamiq at plants in Kvasiny and Mladá Boleslav, respectively.

The new Kodiaq will continue to be produced on its original production line and in a strategic move to future-proof the Kvasiny plant, Škoda has invested 49 million euros in modernising the production line and welding shop. It also encompasses preparations to produce the new Kodiaq iV, which features a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The key enhancements include updates to manipulators, chassis assembly, conveyor technologies, and the refinement of robot functions for applying window glue.

The Škoda Superb was also produced at the plant in Kvasiny until recently but it has now been relocated to the Volkswagen plant in Bratislava which frees up capacity at Kvasiny to allow an additional 150,00 units of the Karoq and Kodiaq to be produced annually.

Andreas Dick, Škoda Auto Board Member for Production and Logistics, said: “It was with the Kodiaq that we began our SUV campaign began back in 2016. The fact that this successful model is entering its second generation today is a very special event for the entire team. Countless hours have gone into the thorough preparations for the production launch. And by investing 49 million euros into modernising the manufacturing facilities, we have made a substantial contribution to future-proofing production at our Kvasiny plant. My heartfelt thanks goes to everyone involved. Their expertise and dedication are the reasons we can now write the next chapter in the success story of our flagship SUV.”

Moving across to Mladá Boleslav, Škoda Auto has also begun production on the new models of the Scala and Kodiaq, which includes new equipment and features systems that are usually reserved for higher vehicle classes. Škoda has also substantially increased the use of sustainable materials in both models.

The latest updates to the Škoda Scala and Kamiq represent a significant step forward in terms of design and equipment: Matrix-LED headlights are now available for both models, while the front and rear bumpers, rims and radiator grilles have been revamped. These changes enhance the distinctiveness of both cars, with the Scala offering a sportier look and the Kamiq becoming a more rugged SUV. Reflecting the brand’s new design language, the fifth door of both models proudly displays the new Škoda logotype. 

Commenting on the Scala and Kodiaq production, Andreas Dick said: “The Scala was the first Škoda car to be rolled out in our current design language. We have now taken both models to the next level and set new standards in the compact class – especially when it comes to assistance systems. I want to thank everyone involved for their exceptional collaboration. I am confident that both upgraded models will be well received by our customers.”
