ŠKODA is one of the longest-standing car manufacturers in the world. The Czech brand has been part of the Volkswagen Group since 1991 and since then has increased the number of deliveries more than sevenfold. The ŠKODA brand delivered 1.2 (2018: 1.3) million vehicles worldwide in 2019.

The ŠKODA models are synonymous with smart understatement, featuring a superior spacious interior, the highest standards of functionality, excellent value for money and a distinct design. Added to that are a number of “Simply Clever” ideas and new digital services, all aimed at making customers’ lives easier. ŠKODA presented the CNG-powered Scala G-Tec and Kamiq G-Tec in 2019, expanding the range of particularly environmentally conscious and efficient natural gas models. ŠKODA also presented the successor to the successful Octavia, and the Kamiq city SUV for the European market. In addition, ŠKODA entered the era of e-mobility in 2019. For the future, ŠKODA is combining the establishment of its electric product family and an integrated networked ecosystem for mobility solutions under the iV sub-brand. The ŠKODA Citigoe iV is the Czech brand’s first allelectric vehicle. Another electric car also celebrated its debut in 2019: the Superbe iV is ŠKODA’S first production model with plug-in hybrid drive. ŠKODA gave a foretaste of this in the reporting year with the presentation of the all-electric Vision iV concept study. With a sporty, emotive design, this is the first vehicle from ŠKODA to be based on the Modular Electric Drive Toolkit (MEB).
