Afater two years Czech Avia ends production of electric cars

The carmaker Avia in Přelouč in the Pardubice region stopped the production and development of commercial electric cars. The project ended after two years. The plant also does not produce diesel trucks. The carmaker had previously produced diesel trucks, but ceased the production at the end of last year. "The production of new vehicles is not running this year. A change in European standards would require a new homologation. It would reduce the profitability of small series production in this category, where mass manufacturers dominate," the spokesman said.
