SKODA AUTO invests 32 million euros in ENYAQ iV production line at its Mladá Boleslav plant
Preparations for the production line to build the first ŠKODA based on the MEB electric car platform began last summer. ŠKODA AUTO has installed auxiliary robots for handling the heavy battery packs. ŠKODA AUTO placed a special focus on safety during the conversion of the production line, especially in terms of battery handling.
Despite comprehensive conversion work, the line can in future still be used for manufacturing models that feature another type of powertrain. Thus, the ENYAQ iV, OCTAVIA and KAROQ will be built with maximum flexibility on the same production line in future.
The all-electric [ŠKODA__CITIGOe__iV] has been rolling off the line in Bratislava, Slovakia, since the end of 2019. And ŠKODA is not the only company to use the high-voltage traction batteries manufactured at its main plant in Mladá Boleslav; they also feature in MQB models with a partially electrified powertrain from other brands within the group.
