Second generation

Škoda Auto has started pre-series production of the second generation Kodiaq SUV at its Kvasiny plant in the Rychnov region. It will invest around CZK 280 million in the reconstruction of the production line. Series production will begin in 2024, and the car will be presented to the public this autumn, the carmaker said in a press release today. The carmaker has been producing the first generation Kodiaq in Kvasiny since autumn 2016.

As before, production of the Kodiaq will be on the same lines as the Superb. According to the carmaker, after the transfer of production of the new generation Superb to Bratislava at the beginning of 2024, space will be available for the annual production of another 150,000 units of the Kodiaq and Karoq SUV models in Kvasiny. After the line is rebuilt, up to 410 second-generation Kodiaqs should roll off the line every day.

Since 2016, Skoda has produced over 800,000 Kodiaqs. In addition to Kvasiny, plants in Ukraine, China, India and, until production ceases in March 2022, Russia have also been involved in production.

Car models

Last year, the carmaker produced 221,000 Superb, Superb Combi, Superb iV, Karoq and Kodiaq vehicles at the Kvasiny plant. Kvasiny produced the most cars so far in 2019, 320,000. The main plant in Mladá Boleslav produced 415,000 cars last year.

The Kvasiny plant employs about 9,000 people and is the largest employer in the Hradec Králové region. Kvasiny is expected to be the plant where Škoda Auto will produce cars with internal combustion engines for the longest time in the Czech Republic.
