Skoda resumes Enyaq production

Skoda resumes Enyaq production

Czech VW brand Skoda is ramping up production of its all-electric Enyaq iV again at its main plant in Mladá Boleslav. Production had to be interrupted for a few weeks due to supply bottlenecks for wiring harnesses.

Like the production of the other MEB models at the VW plant in Zwickau, Enyaq production was among the first plants to be shut down at the beginning of March. As it turned out, a large part of the wiring harnesses for the MEB models came from a plant of the supplier Leoni in the region around the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.

Skoda states that capacity is to be ramped up gradually over a period of two months. When production resumes, it will be able to produce around 1,000 Enyaq iVs per week. In the long term, the plant in Mladá Boleslav will produce up to 370 Enyaq iVs and Enyaq Coupé iVs per day, which would be a calculated 2,590 vehicles per week.

The statement said it had managed to "restore supplies of essential components so that production can resume", adding that the long-term goal was to maintain full production capacity. "However, this is dependent on the availability of certain parts and it is currently not possible to make any predictions about the supply chains," the Czechs said.
