First Ever 3rd Generation Skoda Superb Rolls Off The Production Line

March 12 was a very special day in the Czech Republic, as the first ever 3rd gen Skoda Superb rolled off the line at the Skoda plant in Kvasiny.

This model is wearing ‘Business Grey’ and it looks like it’s on its way to a very proud and tasteful owner. Or at least we hope that’s the case. By the looks of it, it’s definitely not an entry-level model, its steering wheel is on the proper side and we’re also very fond of the wheel design.

Luckily, the Kvasiny production facilities have already been modernized in preparation for the production of the new Superb. A new “Body Production” facility was also put into operation, while other production buildings and production areas were simply expanded.

The new body facility alone cost Skoda 1.7 billion Czech Koruna which is a little over $66 million – but it was clearly an investment they had to make.

Skoda seems to think that the new Superb is (already) setting the standard in the mid-class segment. We’d love it if that was the case, which is why we’re glad that we can’t argue against them, at least not yet.

We like its looks and all its new tech, and we’re sure it’s going to do great on the European market.
