About Skoda Company:
Skoda Motors is a Czech automobile manufacturer founded in 1895 as Laurin & Klement and headquartered in Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic. In 1925 Laurin & Klement was acquired by the industrial conglomerate Skoda Works, which itself became state-owned in 1948.
After 1991 Skoda was gradually privatized to the Volkswagen Audi Group (VAG), becoming a subsidiary in 1994 and a wholly-owned subsidiary in 2000.
What should we expect:
If Skoda company come to Pakistan we might see small cars of Skoda on Pakistani roads. Why small cars, because in upcoming Pakistan’s auto policy, government will give incentives to electric cars. So, in future Skoda company might launch these 2 cars in Pakistan.
