Slovakia-based car producers plan to increase production to 925,000 cars in 2012, representing a 45-percent rise year-on-year, marketing and communication manager of the Slovak Information and Marketing Company (SIMS) Patrícia Macíková told TASR.

“There is one risk: that this growth may actually plateau,” said SIMS business director Július Činčala, as quoted by TASR. “However, if the new small-car models take hold, this danger will be averted.”
