Škoda Auto to double production by 2018

Czech car manufacturer Škoda Auto said on Wednesday that it could more than double production to around 1.5 million cars within 10 years. In a letter sent to the news agency AFP, Central Europe’s biggest car producer said that it planned to be producing 1 million cars annually by 2012. Production last year reached more than 660,000 cars, a 14.5-percent rise compared with 2006. It is thought that most of the increased production could come from India, China and a new facility in South America.
