Car production in the Czech Republic was just over 1 million for the first nine months of this year, an increase of 7 percent on the same period in 2015. It is the first time that the million mark has been surpassed in the first three quarters of a year. The head of the Automotive Industry Association, Martin Jahn, told iHned.cz that the growth was due to increased domestic demand and greater interest in Czech cars in Western Europe. Škoda Auto accounted for more than half of the output, registering increased production of nearly 10 percent.
