Start of production for the new Škoda Kamiq city SUV
The first Škoda Kamiq rolled off the production line at Škoda’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav. Alongside the latest member of the Škoda model range, the Octavia, Fabia, Scala and Karoq are also produced there. The compact city SUV completes Škoda’s SUV portfolio at the lower end.
Kamiq combines the advantages of an SUV – such as higher ground clearance and an elevated seat position – with the agility of a compact car.
Škoda has invested approximately 100 million euros in the manufacturing of the Kamiq in Mladá Boleslav. The production line for the MQB27 platform has been adapted; new press tools have also been produced. 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 headlights with LED technology, for example.
400 new Kamiqs leave the Mladá Boleslav plant each day.
The new model is based on Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform and wows with state-of-the-art assistance and infotainment systems.
Its generous amount of space makes it the perfect companion for families and lifestyle-oriented customers in equal measure.
Offering the new city SUV exclusively with front-wheel drive and a selection of efficient and economical engines, Kamiq is tailored to suit the requirements of a younger, urban target group.
