“Emission-free mobility is one of our key goals for the future, and my opinion is that electromobiles are the right answer to the increasingly stringent emission limits and the need to develop the automotive industry sustainably.” ŠKODA Auto BOD Member for Technological Development Dr. Eckhard Scholz
