WITHOUT BARRIERS AND PREJUDICE
For the third year in a row, ŠKODA AUTO has entered its team in the Metrostav Handy Cyklomarathon,
a non-stop stage race that connects healthy and handicapped cyclists. This year, the ninth edition took place
from 27 to 31 July.The route covered 2,222 km, as in previous years, and participants had 111 hours to
complete it. The theme of this year's team relay was water, so the crossing points were well-known and
lesser-known water sources in the form of 14 reservoirs and 14 dams. Through its long-term
ŠKODA Handy programme, the carmaker has been helping people with reduced mobility to gain mobility.

THE LATEST EPISODE OF THE
SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST
FOCUSES ON ELECTROMOBILITY.
NO. OF THE WEEK
The ‘Sachsen Classic’ classic
car rally is one of the largest
and most prestigious events
of its kind in Europe.
The starting field of vehicles
built between the 1920s and
1990s regularly includes
historic models from the
ŠKODA Classic team, five
of which will be taking part
in the 18th staging of the
rally. The teams will
set off from Zwickau
on Thursday, 19 August and
cover 685 kilometres over
three days. The longest stage
(321 kilometres) will take the
more than 150 historic cars
to Mladá Boleslav for the first
time on Saturday, 21 August,
where they can be admired
in front of the ŠKODA
Museum around midday.
Will the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV be able to drive to Copenhagen,
Denmark, and back for around 2,000 km without any problems?
Absolutely yes. Can a person with only minimal experience of
electric mobility do it? That's what we decided to find out in the
new episode of the e-road trip podcast. Along the way, we tried
out the ride-pooling service of the Volkswagen Group, took a ride
on a hybrid ferry and found out what the situation with
electromobility is like in Denmark. Have a good listen!
Czech ŠKODA AUTO dealership
launched the ŠKODA FOUNDERS
game on its Facebook profile at the
beginning of August. Anyone who
visits ŠKODA Czech Republic's
Facebook profile can join the game.
The comic stories featuring
founders Václav Laurin and Václav
Klement are set in an alternative
present and players can influence
their decisions through an
interactive bot in the Messenger
communication app. Those who
reach the finish line will be entered
into a prize draw. The main prize
will get you the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV
for a month-long loan.
The game and related activities
will last until 15 September 2021.

IN POLICE LIVERY
The Czech carmaker is a traditional supplier of police vehicles:
in the Czech Republic alone, it has delivered more than 20,000
vehicles to the police since 1993. But ŠKODA cars in the
service of men and women of the law can be found in many
parts of the world. And sometimes they have special
modifications, such as handy submachine gun holders.
Where can you find
ŠKODA police cars?

ŠKODAs in other countries
