This investment will create at least 4,000 - 5,000 new jobs in the winning country.
According to general manager of the VW Group, Herbert Diess, the group is looking for a new location in Eastern Europe for a Skoda factory to start production after 2022.
This need arises in the context that VW will use the production plant in Emden, Germany for the production of electric cars, thus relocating the production of the Passat model in the Škoda factory in Kvasiny.
In the upcoming factory of the VW group, SUVs Skoda Karoq and Seat Ateca, currently assembled in Kvasiny, will be produced, according to sources in the market.
On the other hand, besides Bulgaria and Romania, Volkwagen could opt for the use of an engine factory such as Polkowice, Poland and Gyor, Hungary. Thus, Romania would again compete with Poland and Hungary, two countries that have attracted in recent years all the investments in the automotive industry in Central and Eastern Europe.
