Skoda mandates EV training for 2020

  24 April 2019

All Skoda retailers must complete in-house training for both technicians and sales staff by next January as it prepares to launch a range of electric cars.

The company would not say how much it will cost to upgrade the workshops or put staff through the mandatory training courses but said everything must be finished by the start of 2020.

A Skoda spokesperson said: “Later this year Skoda will be launching the Superb PHEV and a fully battery-powered version of Citigo.”
