While other Volkswagen Group electric cars built on the MEB platform are made in dedicated factories, ŠKODA decided to go down the “parallel production” road with its first electric car on the MEB platform. The goal was to achieve maximum production flexibility and make the most efficient use possible of the production lines.
The Mladá Boleslav employees are used to flexibility on the OCTAVIA production line. Part of the KAROQ model output is also produced here, and the RAPID model also used to be made here. Unlike the OCTAVIA, the RAPID was based on its own platform, not the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform. “Even so, the integration was a challenge for ŠKODA. Combining MEB and MQB car production in the optimal way required a lot of painstaking work, mainly by our planning units but also right across the company,” Bureš describes.
