Only a few weeks after its world premiere, the new Toyota bZ4X will be presented to the European public for the first time. The brand's first electric car will hit local markets in 2022. Based on a specially developed platform designed exclusively for electric drive, the crossover SUV heralds a new era. Under the abbreviation ""bZ"" (""beyond zero""), Toyota will be launching a whole range of battery-electric vehicles on the market in the future. The Toyota bZ4X is the beginning. The design and technology largely correspond to the concept vehicle presented in the spring. The production model is characterized by a clear and powerful look that only electric cars can offer. The front end does not require a large radiator grille. A long wheelbase also meets short overhangs. The result is a spacious cabin with five seats and ample loading capacity.
Production of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA at the Mladá Boleslav plant
This ŠKODA AUTO video delivers great insight into the production of the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA. The Czech car manufacturer produces the fourth generation of its bestseller on a radically modernised assembly line at its headquarters in Mladá Boleslav. It is the only line in the entire Volkswagen Group on which vehicles based on the MEB modular electric car platform and the MQB modular transverse matrix can be built alongside one another. Every day, ŠKODA AUTO manufactures 1,150 units of its bestseller, the OCTAVIA, in Mladá Boleslav. Most recently, the Czech carmaker made major changes to this assembly line. In doing so, the company has created the conditions required to produce up to 350 units of the ENYAQ iV each day alongside the OCTAVIA. This allows ŠKODA to react quickly to customer demand for the respective model ranges. The car manufacturer is placing great emphasis on production being supported by state-of-the-art robots. They are used for tasks that are physically demanding for the workforce, and contribute to making the workstations even more ergonomic.
