Skoda was founded in 1895 by Vaclav Laurin and Vaclav Klement as a bicycle and then motorcycle maker. The first car was produced in 1905 and became a best-seller in Czechoslovakia, carrying the brand L & K which was named after its founders. The merger with Skoda Company in 1925 changed its name to Skoda.
Skoda had faced many difficulties and was eventually sold to Volkwagen group in 1991 following the collapse of Berlin Wall. The German giant helped it revising the Favorit into Felica, then built a modern plant to assemble the new-generation Skoda developed fully under Volkswagen, i.e. Octavia, Fabia and Superb. The cars were built to its high-quality standards, and bargain pricing was enabled. It gained its credibility in Western European Market in few years time.
