Automotive producers in Slovakia produced 640,000 cars in 2011, representing an increase of 14 percent year-on-year. The result makes Slovakia 19th worldwide in terms of total number of cars produced, the TASR newswire reported on June 29.
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.”
