The Czech car manufacturer and subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group has been delivering its first electric SUV from Mlada Boleslav to dealers since the beginning of the year - the Škoda Enyaq iV. The new vehicle combines tradition with the future: For example, the traditional Bohemian glass art with its crystal structures is taken up in the light design. The Enyaq iV is powered by an electric motor and sustainability is also practiced in the interior: environmentally friendly processed and recycled materials are used.


The AUNDE Group also makes a decisive contribution to this. AUNDE Achter & Ebels manufactures the textile “Vela” in the main factory in Mönchengladbach. The seat cover consists of 40% virgin wool and 60% polyester - the polyester is obtained from recycled plastic bottles and thus contributes to the sustainable path of the automobile manufacturer.

On October 20th the time had come: the Škoda team, headed by Procurement Board Member Karsten Schnake, got an idea of ​​production in Mönchengladbach on site. Mr. Schnake and his team were welcomed by Rolf A. Königs, Chairman and CEO of the AUNDE Group, among others. As part of a factory tour, the entire manufacturing process of the textile was not only presented, but also documented in detail by a film crew for promotional purposes.

Here it becomes clear again: sustainability not only plays a role in the engine, but in the entire vehicle - also or especially in the interior.
