The SKODA Badge symbolizes a legacy of endurance, strength and trust. Needless to say, it is not easily attained. To wear the SKODA Badge a car must pass several tests with flying colors. Tests that showcase the a SKODA's superiority in all departments. 

SKODA Badge

Will the glue affixing the badge hold tight even in Artic conditions? The low temperatures in the cold chamber allow problem areas to be identified quickly.

Cold Weather

How much do the materials contract in cold weather? When do components become brittle? SKODA spends thousands of hours in the climate chamber in order to identify possible weaknesses.

Heat lamps

Heat lamps on, temperature to the max: Even at extreme temperatures, the technology must function reliably – throughout the lifetime of the car.

KODIAQ Cockpit

It’s not only individual parts that are tested on the stand: the engineers devote a lot of time to testing assemblies, such as the cockpit.

Accident Simulation

Computer-aided accident simulations are increasingly being used to complement conventional crash tests at SKODA. The ultimate goal: greater safety for all occupants. ach material behaves differently in extremes of temperature, and the connection between the parts must remain the same. This complexity is particularly evident in the cockpit – even the built-in entertainment systems need to survive the cold tests.

Extremes Temperature

Each material behaves differently in extremes of temperature, and the connection between the parts must remain the same. This complexity is particularly evident in the cockpit – even the built-in entertainment systems need to survive the cold tests.

Gap Dimensions

A mark of quality in the automotive industry is the gap dimensions, i.e. the distance between two components. These must remain consistent, regardless of the temperature.
