Škoda makes big inroads into China

When Petr Vávra, a counselor at the Czech Embassy in Beijing, recently spent a couple of days in Lianyungang, a coastal city in eastern China, he was, perhaps surprisingly, sometimes reminded of his home country.

In Lianyungang, as in many others cities in the world’s most populous nation, the Czech carmaker Škoda has been making inroads into the marketplace, and vehicles bearing the company’s distinctive green logo were apparently not hard to spot on the local highways.

“I saw in just two days maybe 20 cars from Škoda, which was amazing. In the beginning, it was rare to see Škodas on the street. Now it’s quite common,” Vávra said.
