Škoda Auto a.s. (shortened to Škoda) is a Czech automobile manufacturer established in 1925.
State owned in 1948, it became a partial subsidiary in 1994 and then a wholly owned subsidiary in 2000 of the Volkswagen Group.
With the input of VW expertise and investments, the style and engineering greatly improved and the perception of Škoda in Western Europe completely changed. By 2005, Škoda was selling over 30,000 cars a year in the UK and for the first time in its UK history, a waiting list developed for deliveries from Škoda.
In 2015, Škoda was voted the most reliable car brand in the UK. 2020 saw introduction of plug-in hybrid and all-electric powered models.
There are 2 main types of Škoda key:
Remote keys are one of the most common type of vehicle key in use. The key has a traditional key blade that has to be inserted into the ignition and its transponder chip communicates with the security system to allow the vehicle to start. The battery-powered key fob has remote control buttons that allow you to lock and unlock the doors without having to physically insert the key into the door lock.
Smart car keys, sometimes referred to as Proximity Keys, are one of the latest types of car keys to be utilised by vehicle manufacturers. Smart keys are detected by your vehicle when you’re nearby and unlock the doors. This type of key also allows users to start their cars with a press of a button. While driving, these car keys do not need to be inserted into the ignition.
