The goal of ŠKODA AUTO’s new strategy is to develop
internationalisation, electrification, and digitisation. The company
plans to transform the Czech Republic into a centre of electromobility development and thus ensure existing jobs and
create new ones. By 2030, its product portfolio will be expanded by
at least three purely electric models. By 2030, electric vehicles or
electric components should be manufactured at all three production
plants in the Czech Republic. At the beginning of 2022, the
production of battery systems for the group’s MEB platform will be
launched in Mladá Boleslav. The carmaker is also expanding its
virtual-showroom concept and wants to sell 20% of its vehicles
online in 2025. Compared to 2020, it plans to lower fleet emissions
by 50% and switch to carbon-neutral production in all its Czech and
Indian production plants by 2030. In addition, between 2022 and
2030, it will invest almost EUR 500m in employee learning.
