Over 1.2 million cars were produced in the Czech Republic last year, which is a record. That represents a jump of at least 6 percent on the figure for 2013. The preliminary figures were announced by the director of the Automotive Industry Association, Antonín Šípek. Previously 2011 was the record year for production in the Czech Republic, with 1.195 million cars. The largest producer Škoda Auto accounted for 59 percent of last year’s output. Hyundai accounted for a quarter of production while the rest came from TPCA.
