The automaker Škoda Auto based in Mladá Boleslav will end up with internal combustion engines in 2035. This was stated by the Chairman of the Board of Škoda Auto, Jaroslav Povsek. According to him, the company needs at least five electric models, and preferably seven.
“We need at least five electric products, but seven is preferable. If we had that, that would be fine. And we have to fight. Everyone for that matter is fighting for electronic mobility today – we no longer have a way to go back to the classic interior of combustion engines” ‘Povchik said to the servant. Message List.
According to Povchik, if Skoda does not win the production of five to seven electric models, there is a risk of losing up to 10,000 jobs.

Collective wage bargaining awaits damage in the spring. “We have the best average wage in the Czech Republic in this sector. We have an average of 56 thousand. We are at the top and we don’t have to go higher so quickly. We will have to look at inflation if we adjust it and create another structure that will help. It’s a taxable salary, but something the employee will get as relief,” Bovchik told the servant. According to him, it will be, for example, cheap meals or cheap entertainment.
Last year, Škoda Auto delivered 878,200 cars. This is an annual decrease of 126,600 vehicles. The reason is the coronavirus pandemic and the chip shortage crisis in the electronics on board.
