HCMC – The first completely-built-up (CBU) Skoda cars, imported and distributed by Vietnam’s distributor and assembler TC Motor, will soon hit the local market, the local media reported.

The Czech automaker Skoda wants to establish a presence in Vietnam and other ASEAN markets. The plan entails bringing the CBU Skoda Kodiaq and Karoq models from the Czech Republic to Vietnam in 2023, with the Skoda Superb and Octavia following suit in 2024.

Moreover, the electric-vehicle Skoda ENYAQ iV is expected to be offered to local customers by 2025.

Simultaneously, the Skoda Kushaq and Slavia models will be assembled at the under-construction Skoda auto facility in Vietnam as part of the partnership between the Czech automaker and TC Motor. The 36.5-hectare factory project is located within the Thanh Cong Viet Hung Automotive Supporting Industry Complex in the northern province of Quang Ninh.

It is equipped with high-level automation that adheres to European standards and has a designed capacity of producing up to 120,000 vehicles annually.
