On Monday 27 April ŠKODA AUTO resumed production at its Czech plants. The company’s main plant also recommenced assembly of high-voltage traction batteries for vehicles that feature plug-in hybrid drive. In order to ensure the best possible health protection, employees are required to comply with an updated code of conduct at all times.

Christian Bleiel, Head of Component Production at ŠKODA AUTO, said: “At the Mladá Boleslav site, we produce high-voltage traction batteries used in plug-in hybrids from various Group brands. In recent weeks, we have thoroughly prepared for the scheduled restart to ensure that we can deliver the required quantities under the current conditions from the start. Of course, complying with the precautions required to keep our employees as safe as possible remains the top priority.”
