Czech car production rises 10.2% to 1.218 million vehicles in 2022

Cars are parked in the courtyard of Skoda Auto's factory as the company restarts production after shutting down last month due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak in Mlada Boleslav

PRAGUE (Reuters) - Czech car production grew by 10.2% to 1.218 million vehicles in 2022 despite challenges from chip shortages, supply chain snags and soaring energy prices, the country's Automotive Industry Association (AutoSAP) said on Wednesday.

"We have to prepare for ongoing volatility and swings in 2023," AutoSAP president Martin Jahn said. "But I believe the outages will be of a short-term character and overall we will continue to raise production back to pre-crisis levels."
