Skoda auto is an automobile manufacturer in the Czech Republic. Starting off in the late 1890’s Skoda was just a company that manufactured cycles. However by the mid 1940’s Skoda had started to manufacture cars and slowly progressed as a company. However it was never a big company as they sold regular cars, which did not stand out. However in 1991, it was brought by the well-known car manufacture, Volkswagen. This made a dramatic change in the design and production of their cars as German technology was used to develop Skoda products.
