Kia Motors Slovakia made its 100,000th car last Friday at its factory near Žilina.
The Korean carmaker launched its Slovak plant in December 2006.
The milestone car was a Cee'd_SW station wagon, the newest Kia model.
The 100,000th Cee’d is to roll off the plant production line on October 3, the company announced.
Kia Motors Europe vice-president Jean-Charles Lievens said that thanks to highly qualified employees, more than 2,500 of whom now work in two-shift production, the company is now producing three models: a five-door version and a station wagon version of the Kia Cee'd, and the Sportage SUV.
"In the second half of October, the production of the fourth Cee'd model will start, which will be a sporty three-door version of the five-door Cee'd model," Lievens added.
