Beginnings of Skoda

Skoda is one of the five oldest companies producing cars today. The plant called Skoda Works was founded in 1859. At the time, no one thought about producing cars - Skoda Works was active in the metal and defense industries. The first cars begin to appear after the end of World War I. In 1924, the first Skoda 25/100 was produced under the license of Hispano-Suizy.

Laurin & Klement

At that time Laurin & Klement, a car manufacturing company, was already active. The plant was founded by Vaclav Laurin and Vaclav Klement in Mlada Boleslav in 1895. Initially, the company produced bicycles, from 1899 motorcycles, and the first car appeared in 1905.

Voiturette A

It was the Voiturette A model, which was powered by a 1005 ccm two-cylinder engine with 7 HP. 44 copies were produced. His successors were versions B and C. In 1911, the S model was created with a four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 1771 ccm and 14 HP, which was produced until 1925. In addition, the company manufactured buses, trucks, road rollers and agricultural machinery.

Fusion from fire

In 1924, a fire in Mlada Boleslav destroyed a fire. The company began to look for a strategic partner, and the choice fell on the Skoda plant, which in 1925 became the owner of Laurina and Klementa.

Skoda on the British market

Modeled on the competition for the best car of the year organized by the popular What Car magazine, the British prepared a ranking of used models. Cars were classified in as many as 15 classes and in different price categories. The winner in the city cars category was the Skoda Citigo. British experts appreciate the small Citigo for its lively three-cylinder engines and excellent handling. Citigo has also gained recognition for its interior layout and workmanship. Accessibility was also highlighted: the car is quite popular on the market for used models.

On the other hand, Skoda Fabia was recognized as the best offer in the category - small cars - especially among the youngest years. Rich equipment and three-cylinder engines were appreciated. Although the jury admitted that in terms of driving Fabia is not a class leader, what he offers is completely sufficient. Ford Fiesta and Mini rule in other price categories.
