Skoda prepares itself for the challenges of electromobility by working on it in all directions.

In 2018, the Czech automaker invested € 3.4 million in expanding its domestic electrical infrastructure at its headquarters in Mladá Boleslav. Extensive tests are conducted using more than 300 charging points in order to maximize the charging infrastructure and its time. Thus, the company lays the foundation for future brand electric cars, which will appear in 2019.

The 300 charging points tested are equivalent to 220 AC charging stations and more than 80 current DC charging stations.

In the next few years, Skoda plans to expand its charging infrastructure outside of its facilities. In cooperation with SKO-ENERGO’s own electricity supplier and local authorities, the company will prepare Mladá Boleslav to switch to electric mobility, turning it into a smart city.
