The Czech automaker Škoda Auto has launched production of Modular Electric Drive (MEB) battery systems at Mladá Boleslav headquarters. Around 250 employees will be assembling more than 250,000 battery systems a year on the newly constructed production line. The company has invested around € 130 million. 

Škoda Auto reveals plans to expand its MEB battery system assembly line in 2023 with an investment of € 57 million and to produce more than 380,000 battery systems a year in total. At this stage, the company will hire 180 new employees.
