Half a million and counting: ŠKODA Yeti production at Kvasiny exceeds 500,000

Half a million and counting: ŠKODA Yeti production at Kvasiny exceeds 500,000

30/10/2015
The 500,000 ŠKODA Yeti has rolled off the ŠKODA production line in Kvasiny. The milestone vehicle – a Yeti Monte Carlo in Corrida Red – was photographed with production line employees as it completed its journey through the plant.

Milton Keynes, 30 October 2015 - “Achieving a production figure of half a million ŠKODA Yetis is yet another milestone for the Kvasiny plant”, says Michael Oeljeklaus, ŠKODA Board Member for Production and Logistics. “Since its introduction, the Yeti has delighted customers in Europe and the international markets. We owe this success not least to the team in Kvasiny. It is with their technical skills, their expertise and the highest commitment that they essentially shape the excellent reputation of the plant. Over the next few years, Kvasiny’s production volume will increase significantly. SUV production is going to play an important role in this.”

The Czech car manufacturer celebrated its premiere in the SUV segment in 2009 with the ŠKODA Yeti. The Yeti quickly became one of the most successful vehicles in its class. In 2013, the ŠKODA Yeti was completely redesigned, and has since been available in two individual design versions: the smart ŠKODA Yeti for the city, and the adventurous ŠKODA Yeti for the great outdoors. Both versions of the ŠKODA Yeti score with expressive designs, fresh interiors, attractive 'Simply Clever' ideas, highest functionality and enhanced engine/gearbox combinations.

Both versions of the Yeti are available with front- and all-wheel drive. The modern 4x4 version has outstanding off-road characteristics, offering maximum all-wheel functionality in combination with the Yeti’s proven qualities. The ŠKODA Yeti Monte Carlo has been available since 2014, extending the Yeti range with a sporty version.

In addition to the production in Kvasiny, the ŠKODA Yeti runs off the production lines in China and Russia. In China, the Yeti is produced locally at the Shanghai Volkswagen plant as an extended version for the Chinese market. In Russia, production of the compact SUV is carried out in corporation with the Russian manufacturer GAZ Group at the Nizhniy Novgorod plant.

Kvasiny is one of ŠKODA’s three production plants in the Czech Republic. In addition to the ŠKODA Yeti, the ŠKODA Superb and Superb Combi models currently run off the assembly lines here. In 2014, 166,200 ŠKODA vehicles were produced at Kvasiny. Around 4,500 employees are currently employed here, making it one of the largest industrial employers in the Hradec Králové region. The automobile factory was founded some 81 years ago, and ŠKODA cars have been manufactured there since 1947.

The Kvasiny plant is currently undergoing the most extensive modernization and expansion project in the history of the site. Over the next few years, the production capacity of the East-Bohemian region is set to increase by up to 280,000 vehicles per year. There are also plans to create up to 1,300 additional jobs. ŠKODA will be investing around seven billion Czech crowns into the development project.

ŠKODA has once again proved itself to be the brand to beat by dominating the 2018 DieselCar and EcoCar Top 50. The Czech brand was named as class winner in no fewer than four key categories and topped more sectors than any other manufacturer in the influential annual chart.
Motoring review site Honest John has named the ŠKODA KODIAQ its overall 2018 Car of the Year – adding another trophy to the Czech SUV’s remarkable collection. In addition to awarding the KODIAQ its highest honour, Honest John website visitors also named the SUPERB as its Family Car of the Year for the second year in succession.
ŠKODA AUTO continues its growth course. Never before has the Czech traditional brand achieved such a strong result in terms of sales revenue, deliveries and operating profit between January and March. The manufacturer delivered 316,700 vehicles worldwide (+ 11.7%). Operating profit increased by 5.3% to 437 million euros in the same period, while sales revenue increased by 4.9% to 4.5 billion euros.
ŠKODA owners can check the status of their car with just their voice thanks to the integration of ŠKODA Connect and Amazon’s Alexa virtual personal assistant. The technology works across all devices equipped with Alexa Voice Services and allows owners to interact with their vehicles on a completely new level.
ŠKODA fleet’s latest research into the habits of company car drivers has revealed they will spend the equivalent of nearly three years of their working life in the driver’s seat.
ŠKODA UK continued to grow into 2018 with sales remaining buoyant despite the general decline in the new car market. The brand achieved a joint-record first quarter market share of 3.01 per cent (first recorded in 2014), up 0.29 per cent over the same period last year with 21,611 cars finding new homes. ŠKODA also delivered its best-ever March market share of 2.81 per cent, up from 2.43 per cent in 2017, registering 13,300 cars.
