The original Mototechna was launched in the early 1950s in Czechoslovakia. It operated as a monopoly state seller of passenger cars, motorcycles and spare parts, during a period (i.e. before 1989) when obtaining a car required, apart from cash, an enormous test of endurance.

The AAA Auto group has been operating on the market for 20 years, with a network of 27 branches in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Russia. During the first half of 2012 the group sold 25,841 cars, of which 18,341 vehicles were sold in the Czech Republic, 6,565 in Slovakia and 935 on the Russian market.
