Skills and Experience Required
We began differently.
At ŠKODA, life began not on four wheels but on two. Our founders Václav Laurin and Václav Klement started out making bicycles in the 1890s, and went on to produce motorcycles before they eventually progressed to manufacturing automobiles in 1905. Difference, you might say, is in our very DNA.
We design differently.
The distinctive look of our cars is inspired by the traditional Czech art of crystal glass design. You can see this in the clear, sharp lines and dynamic shape of our new Kodiaq SUV. Look even closer and you’ll also see a crystalline structure in the design of the headlights and the decorative trim. Nothing is ordinary.
We think differently.
We’re not a car manufacturer that likes to reel off performance figures and specification lists for their own sake. We take a more human approach. We concentrate on developing innovations which make the experience of driving our cars - and of being driven in them - more enjoyable. But they have to be really useful. In real life.
We’re chosen by those who think differently.
We’ve noticed that ŠKODA cars are driven by a particular type of person. It’s nothing to do with age, income or any other social demographic, but attitude. They love driving something different because they’re driven by something different. Just like us.
