about czech automotive
With passenger car production at 122 vehicles per 1,000 persons, the Czech Republic has maintained its supreme position among world automotive leaders in terms of per-capita output. It is also among the fifteen largest global passenger car producers by volume.
The Czech automotive industry employs more than 150,000 people and accounts for more than 20% of both Czech manufacturing output and Czech exports. The Czech automotive centre of excellence plays a key role not only in the European but also in the global perspective. Based on the country’s century-long engineering tradition, good infrastructure and skilled workforce, it significantly contributes to automotive manufacturing and R&D. While the country has the capacity and resources to accommodate three major carmakers – Škoda Auto (Volkswagen group), TPCA (Toyota/PSA joint venture) and Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech – and holds excellent business opportunities for suppliers, the Czech Republic is poised to consolidate its position as one of the leading European centres for automotive-related design and R&D activity.
