Skoda

Skoda Auto is a Czech automobile manufacturer founded in 1895. Originally named Laurin & Klement after its founders, the company was acquired by industrial conglomerate Skoda Works in 1925. The firm started out as a motorcycle company but switched to automobiles in 1905. Skoda gained notoriety in 1930 through models like the Rapid, Favorit, and Superb and in 1948 it became a state-owned company. The Czech firm continued production of the Felicia and Octavia after World War II, but it also introduced affordable cars that became popular Easter European countries during the cold war. Notable models include the 1000 MB, 100 and 110 series, as well as the 105, 120, and 125 series. New generations of Rapid and Favorit, as well as the 130 and 135 series, became popular in communists countries during the 1980s due to their low price and availability of parts. After the fall of communism and the Velvet Revolution, Skoda signed a partnership with Volkswagen in 1991. In 2000, Skoda became a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group. As of 2019, the company's lineup includes five cars, the Superb, Octavia, Scala, Fabia, and Citigo, and three crossovers, the Kodiaq, Karoq, and Kamiq.
