The carmaker in Mladá Boleslav underwent a major modernization before the start of production of the fourth generation Octavia in November last year, not only due to the new release of the “bestseller” of the Škoda brand.

A unique feature of the Volkswagen Group is the fact that, in addition to 1,150 new Octavia, 350 Enyaq IV models will be created on the same belt – pure electric cars on the MEB platform. Like electrified versions of the Octavia, including the hybrid AV plug-in, it requires a special approach.

“Extensive preparations consisted, among other things, in adapting the building’s structure and technology for transporting parts to suit the weight of purely battery-powered cars and assembled components. The total investment in the necessary construction modifications reached over 800 million crowns, ”says spokesman Tomáš Kotera, adding that thanks to this, it is possible to respond flexibly to the demand for individual model lines.
