By relocating the manufacture of the next-generation Superb from the Czech plant in Kvasiny to Bratislava in Slovakia, Skoda wants to free up the capacity in Czechia.
After the move, scheduled for 2023, the development of the next-generation Superb will remain in Czechia.
The extra capacity will be used to build additional cars like Skoda Kodiaq and Karoq SUVs and for another Skoda model.
Skoda currently produces the Kodiaq and Karoq SUVs as well as the Superb and the Superb iV plug-in hybrid at its Kvasiny plant.
This move is part of Volkswagen plan to abandon investment in Turkey and to expand production in Slovakia.
