The first fourth generation Skoda Octavia has rolled off the production line at Skoda Auto's Mlada Boleslav plant.

The latest edition of the brand's bestseller is more spacious, safer, better connected and more emotive, and is setting new benchmarks in its segment. With around 400,000 units delivered each year, the Octavia is a favourite amongst European customers. To date, the carmaker has manufactured more than 6.5 million units of its bestseller, which is one of the most popular compact models in the Czech Republic, Austria, Finland and Switzerland.

For the production of the new Octavia, the company has prepared its facilities to incorporate innovative processes and technologies. Robots are used for numerous complex and physically demanding production steps, allowing Skoda's employees' workstations to be redesigned for better ergonomics. Each day, 1,150 units of the fourth generation Octavia is expected to leave the plant to be delivered to customers all around the world.
