Skoda has just passed the milestone of two million SUV units produced. The model in question is a Skoda Kamiq, produced at the Czech plant in Mladá Boleslav.
The success of SUVs does not weaken, and Skoda has been riding the wave since 2009 with the Skoda Yeti, produced 685,500 copies in the space of eight years of career. Since then, the new generation of the brand’s SUVs has grown considerably, notably with the Kodiaq (593,600 units produced to date) and Karoq (454,800 units), which represent 40% of Skoda’s sales, and not to mention the latest comer : the Skoda Kamiq.
It is precisely the small SUV of the Czech manufacturer that is today in the spotlight, being the two millionth SUV produced by Skoda, and also the 250,000th copy of Kamiq coming off the chains of the factory in Mladá Boleslav, near Prague in the Czech Republic.
Skoda SUV: the turn to electric
Skoda is also starting the transformation of its SUVs to electric with the Skoda Enyaq iV, presented last fall and based on the Volkswagen group’s fully electric MEB modular platform. To date, already 1,100 copies of it have been produced by the factory in Mladá Boleslav.
Across the world, Skoda also owns other factories producing SUVs, Ukraine, Slovakia, Russia, China or India. Asia also represents an important market for the Czech firm, with several models developed specifically for these countries: the GT versions of the Kamiq and Kodiaq, not to mention the future Skoda Kushaq, a small city SUV designed for the Indian market, and of which the presentation is expected on March 18th.
