ŠKODA AUTO has manufactured its millionth SUV. The anniversary vehicle is the KAROQ model from the Kvasiny plant. The carmaker expanded into the SUV segment in 2009 with the launch of the ŠKODA YETI model. The SUV offensive is an integral part of Strategy 2025. ŠKODA AUTO’s board of directors member for production and logistics, Michael Oeljeklaus, has stated that the company is currently adopting measures to be able to satisfy the growing demand for this segment in the future. The plant in Kvasiny will be transformed into the SUV competence centre.
