Thus, the company is laying the foundation for the brand's electric vehicles to be launched in 2019.

Škoda Auto is preparing itself and its surroundings for the requirements of electromobility. In 2018, the Czech car manufacturer invested €3.4 million ($3.88 million) in the expansion of its internal electrical infrastructure at its headquarters.

Michael Oeljeklaus, Škoda Auto Board Member for Production and Logistics, says: “Preparations for e-mobility at Škoda are in full swing. For over a year, we have been conducting tests using morethan 300 charging points at our plant in Mladá Boleslav. We are now drawing on the experience and insights gained from these trials to further expand the charging infrastructure off the factory premises -a task we are undertaking in collaboration with Ško-Energo.”

The technical development, quality assurance, sales and production departments are already testing the charging infrastructure at the Škoda plant in Mladá Boleslav. Last year, the manufacturer invested a total of around €3.4 million ($3.88 million) in its expansion: €1.65 million ($1.88 million) went into modernising and expanding the power grid and a further €1.75 million ($2 million) was issued by Škoda Auto for the installation of more than 300 charging points. This is equivalent to more than 220 alternating current (AC) and more than 80 modern direct current (DC) charging stations.

In the next few years, Škoda Auto plans to expand the charging infrastructure beyond the plant gates. In collaboration with the energy provider Ško-Energo - Škoda Auto's energy provider for more than 20 years - and the local authority, the car manufacturer is preparing Mladá Boleslav for e-mobility, developing it into a smart city.
