17-04-2008

Czech car manufacturer Škoda Auto said on Wednesday that it could more than double production to around 1.5 million cars within 10 years. In a letter sent to the news agency AFP, Central Europe’s biggest car producer said that it planned to be producing 1 million cars annually by 2012. Production last year reached more than 660,000 cars, a 14.5-percent rise compared with 2006. It is thought that most of the increased production could come from India, China and a new facility in South America.
