Completely reworked production line for the all new Skoda Kamiq city SUV at Skoda's main plant in Mlada Boleslav.
Serial production of the new Kamiq city SUV has begun at the Skoda main plant in Mlada Boleslav. The production line for this latest member of the Skoda model range will sit alongside those for the current Octavia, Fabia, Scala and Karoq.
Dr Michael Oeljeklaus, Skoda Auto Board Member for Production and Logistics, said, "For us, the start of production for a new Skoda model is always a special time. Over the past few months, we have made all of the provisions in production and logistics to successfully launch the Kamiq in the city SUV segment. We are convinced that - in typical Skoda style - the Kamiq too will impress our customers with its excellent quality and many practical features."
Skoda has invested approximately €100 million (approx. $153 million) in the manufacturing of the Kamiq in Mlada Boleslav. The production line for the MQB27 platform has been adapted and new press tools have also been produced. While in the paint shop, body shop and final assembly, not only were fundamental changes made, but details were also modified to facilitate the assembly of the new split head lights with LED technology, for example. 400 new Kamiqs will leave the Mlada Boleslav plant each day.
