Skoda will transfer part of production to Germany and Slovakia

This was recently announced by a representative of the Skoda trade union.

The chairman of the trade union, Jaroslav Povsik, told reporters that Skoda plans to transfer part of the production of highly profitable models outside the Czech Republic – to Germany and Slovakia. In particular, we are talking about the assembly of Skoda Superb and Skoda Kodiaq. Because of this, production of the Seat Ateca will be moved to Spain.

Interestingly, representatives of the brand did not comment on this message in any way. It also remains completely unclear why Skoda plans to move the production of some cars to neighboring countries. It is possible that in this way the union is trying to push the company to an early exit from the crisis caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Last year, more than 29,000 Superb, 102,000 Kodiaq and 98,000 Seat Ateca were collected in the Czech Republic. At the same time, for the entire 2019, the brand sold 1,240,000 cars worldwide.
