The automotive industry represents one of the most important sectors of the Czech economy. The revenues of the Czech automotive industry surpassed almost CZK 930 billion and thus have grown by almost 60% since 2008 (source: www.mpo.cz). In 2015, almost 1.3 million personal cars and light commercial vehicles were produced, which represents 4% growth (source: www.autosap.cz). Registration of new sold cars are reaching record levels. Automotive companies regularly place among the most important and admired companies in the Czech Republic.

However, there are more than just manufacturing firms in the automotive sector. There is also the sale and servicing of cars, their financing for corporate or retail customers or the sale of spare parts.
