Skoda CEO Thomas Schafer said that 2021 was one of the most challenging years in the company's history due to the pandemic and semiconductor shortage that slowed down its growth of it. “Thanks to the flexibility and resourcefulness of the Skoda team, as well as the close cooperation with our social partner KOVO and suppliers, we managed to steer the company through the year successfully and deliver a respectable result. We expect the semiconductor supply situation to gradually ease in the second half of the year. I am looking ahead with confidence; we have many new products in the pipeline, including the Enyaq Coupe iV, we are experiencing very high customer demand, and we have a highly motivated team," Schafer added.
