Skoda Kamiq Enters Production For European Markets


Skoda has started building of its third SUV for Europe, the subcompact Kamiq, with The first unit rolling off the production line at the company’s main plant in Mlada Boleslav in the Czech Republic where the Fabia, Scala, Octavia, and Karoq are also made.

Skoda has invested around €100 million ($112 million) to prepare the plant for the manufacturing of the Kamiq, which is based on VW Group’s MQB platform. The production line has been adapted for the MQB27 architecture and new press tools have been produced. Additionally, the paint shop, body shop, and final assembly saw fundamental changes made. As a result, the plant is capable of building 400 Kamiqs every day.

Smaller than the Karoq and Kodiaq, the new model completes the brand’s SUV lineup at the lower end and combines the advantages of an SUV (higher ground clearance, raised driving position) with the agility of a compact car.
