The "Eurocar" plant started production of new models SKODA Spaceback and Octavia RS. New models, presented by SKODA in 2013, already are in the product line of the leading automaker of Ukraine.
The official production launch ceremony was visited by the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the "Eurocar" PJSC Oleg Boyarin, members of the Supervisory Board of the "Eurocar" PJSC, the General Director of the "Eurocar" PJSC, the Director of the ŠKODA AUTO CIS region Miroslav Kroupa, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Czech Republic in Ukraine Ivan Pochukh, the head of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Valeriy Lunchenko, the Director of the Economic Department of the Embassy of the Czech Republic Denisa Provaznikova and the Consul General of the Czech Republic in Lviv Miroslav Klima.
The head of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Valeriy Lunchenko congratulated the owners of the company with the launch of new models. "Today I myself "touched" these cars and I can give them only a positive response. In the coming years, I am sure, the production capacity will grow. "Eurocar" today is an example of how to work, even in difficult economic conditions," - the head of the RSA said. He also said that recently he had met with the Prime Minister of Ukraine and they had agreed that the work of Ukrainian authorities would focus solely on mitigating the conditions of cooperation with investors.
The Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the "Eurocar" PJSC Oleg Boyarin, commenting on the work of the company in the current economic environment, said: "Survival is possible only when you realize that you have a well-formed plan for decades ahead. On the one hand, now there are many difficulties in the country, on the other hand, there are outstanding opportunities. If Ukraine develops a clear plan for the modernization of the economy, we will have a great opportunity to build a new wonderful country. And we must think strategically."
The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Czech Republic to Ukraine Ivan Pochukh noted that he had also owned SKODA cars and thought highly of this brand. The diplomat praised the activities of the "Eurocar" in the context of cooperation between Ukraine and the Czech Republic. He also expressed hope for greater promotion of investment activities of foreign companies in Ukraine.
According to the general director of the plant Igor Tsarenko, the new, spectacular hatchback SKODA Spaceback is a car with a strong individual style, capacity, high safety level, economic fuel consumption and a large number of sustainable solutions, unique to SKODA. The dynamic and rapid silhouette of SKODA Spaceback emphasizes the sporty character of the new car.
By the end of 2014, it is planned to produce about one thousand cars SKODA Spaceback.
Along with the new compact hatchback, the model range of sports cars SKODA Ukraine will be expanded with the fastest and the most powerful ever Octavia of the RS version. The new Octavia RS embodies all the brand's sporting traditions and is rightly considered the brightest model of the SKODA lineup. The model has all the outstanding qualities of the new SKODA Octavia: high functionality, capacity, advanced safety systems and comfort. The dynamic design of the new Octavia RS emphasizes the style and elegance of this car's sports class: distinctive grille, new front bumper and RS design of fog lights, as well as new bixenon headlamps with integrated LED daytime lights.
The speed and maximum acceleration performance of the new Octavia RS surpasses even that achieved in the earlier version of the model. The new Octavia RS reaches 100 km / h speed in 6.8 seconds. The maximum speed of 220 hp two-liter petrol engine with manual transmission reaches 248 km / h.
