    Jiří Dytrych about new global platform for small cars

    Jiří Dytrych about new global platform for small cars

    Shortly after Skoda Auto presented its new model for the Indian market, the small Sedan Slavia, the car manufacturer announced another piece of news concerning its “global models”, specifically the next generation of vehicles for the Indian and South American markets, among others. Skoda Auto is taking over global responsibility for the MQB-A0 platform of the Volkswagen Group and will be developing the next generation of this platform, which incorporates the smallest models produced by the Group. This will include the successors of the recently introduced cars for the Indian market, Kushaq and Slavia. What does this mean for Skoda Auto? What is the potential of these “entry models” on global markets? What are the differences between the versions of the models presented on the individual markets? Jiří Dytrych, head of the Small product line at Skoda Auto, will be answering these questions in the newest edition of the Simply Clever podcast.

    Sascha Meyer about the ridesharing service MOIA

    Sascha Meyer about the ridesharing service MOIA

    In this episode of SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST 2.0 we visit Hamburg. This city with the population of almost 2 millions people is facing exactly the same problem as most of the big cities. Lots of cars, not enough space for parking and of course emissions. Volskwagen offers its own solution - ridesharing service called MOIA. 


    You can see these golden painted electric minibuses pretty much everywhere on the streets of Hamburg. What you don't see is the clever algorithm behind the app which calculates the optimal route for you going for example to work and anybody else who might share the same direction you are headed. With only six seats in a spacious car you have much more comfort than in a public transport yet it is a bit cheaper and much more sustainable than taking a taxi or your own car. MOIA s vision is quite ambitious - to take one million cars off the road. In MOIA headquarters in the center of Hamburg we met with Sascha Meyer, Chief Product officer of the company.

    Marek Jancák about the global shortage of chips

    Marek Jancák about the global shortage of chips

    Probably nobody could have expected that right after the covid crisis there would be another global problem causing the vehicle production to stop - this time the global shortage of chips. Of course, covid19 played its role. One of the other reasons is probably that the production of chips is too centralised in Asia. But it was probably a combination of various factors combined. How are the automotive companies supposed to react? A what is the outline for upcoming months? These are the questions for Marek Jancák, head of ŠKODA AUTO vehicle production in a new episode of SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST 2.0.

    Eric Boutin about changes in customer journey

    Imagine that you are thinking about selling your old car. But not because you want to sell it, but because the car itself told you it is the right time to do it - based on used car market data. According to Eric Boutin, head of customer journey at ŠKODA AUTO this is not a science fiction. With proper data it is quite an easy thing to process. But we need to get to the point where there will be public consent that this kind of data usage is beneficial for the customers. 


    What exactly is behind the term customer journey? Does it end at some point? And how has it changed because of covid, younger generation of customers and new digital technologies? I'm Vojtěch Koval and you are listening to SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST  2.0 with Eric Boutin, head of customer Journey at ŠKODA AUTO.
