A total of 24,950 vehicles were destined for the domestic market, i.e. 10.2 percent more than in the previous year, and 328,820 cars were exported by automakers, which is a year-on-year increase of 33.4 percent.
The largest Škoda Auto increased production by 42.4 percent to 231,652 cars, Hyundai from Nošovice produced 88,300 vehicles, i.e. 18.8 percent more year-on-year, Toyota from Cologne increased production by 5.2 percent to 33,818 cars.
“Although the situation in the supply chain is still not simple and the production capacities of individual components will need to be rebalanced with the ongoing demand for vehicles, I perceive a gradual return to equilibrium. It is all the more important to prevent counterproductive regulatory intervention in the market, which threatens, for example, in the case of the adoption of the Euro 7 standard in its current form,” said Martin Jahn, president of the Association of the Automotive Industry.
