Škoda Auto has manufactured 500,000 battery systems at its main plant in Mladá Boleslav. The strategically important components are mounted in MEB vehicles and models with plug-in hybrid drivetrain by the Group brands Škoda, Volkswagen, Audi and SEAT. This milestone proves: Škoda is forging ahead with the consistent implementation of its e-campaign. The car manufacturer is heavily investing in the necessary transformation of its facilities as well as development, digitalisation and further education of its workforce. The company has already upskilled more than 23,000 employees to prepare them for the demands of e-mobility.
„Battery systems are the key component for our successful transformation to e-mobility. The landmark jubilee of 500,000 Škoda-made battery systems for MEB and plug-in hybrid vehicles is an outstanding achievement: It testifies both the trust of the Volkswagen Group in our highly-skilled team and our uncompromising commitment to e-mobility. And we are even shifting up another gear soon: We will be opening an additional assembly line and further increase the daily production capacity of battery systems. We are therefore following our clearly defined roadmap in order to strengthen the Czech Republic as an e-mobility hub.“
