I knew someone with a Skoda back in the 1980s:
Aiming to produce 1.5 million cars with 10 years, Czech car manufacturer Skoda Auto said April 16 it would more than double its production. “Skoda Auto plans to produce 1.0 million cars by 2012 and, on condition that the world boom continues, we could reach 1.5 million cars in 2018,” the biggest car producer in Central Europe and member of the Volkswagen Group said. Skoda Auto was unable to confirm details of how the production increase would be divided between its Czech and foreign plants.
We know they are producing in low cost countries but are they planning to get in under the NAFTA? Giddyup.
