Hey fellas, I decided to open a thread about the automobile industry in EE, cause we are witnessing a boom of investments in that sector here. So share with us details of this industry in your country. I know that we're not exactly producing SUVs and cars here but we're still producing at least car parts which is equally as important and lucrative. So share news, post pictures etc. just be constructive. Also, post news/pics of plants that are already producing or that are U/C - no need to post announcements and promises or early interests from companies.

So this is about what I know for Macedonia (I'm sure the other Macedonians around can add other stuff too)

- Johnson Controls are constructing a factory near Skopje for electronics for cars.
- there's also a plant in Struga (I think) for seat belts that has mainly exported it's products in Russia.

That's the project of the first Bulgarian car,branded "Universe".

“Юнивърс” е с двигател от Smart 4/4, на чиято платформа е създаден. Окачването му също е на Smart, но някои от частите и детайлите са български. Агрегатът е с 1.5 литра обем и мощност от 105 к.с.

Seriously, guys, I'm actually amazed to see so many working factories in EE (and CE). This Czech map is awesome, you're goddamn lucky guys :cheers:

BTW, by automobile industry I meant only cars but whatever you can post pictures of bus/tram/train/tank factories if you like as well. Anything that drives!! :)

We have a bus production factory in MK called Sanos which has sold buses to Belgrade.

You should add the Hyundai factory in North Moravia in Czech Republic. The construction has been started recently... and also notice that Toyota/Peugeot/Citroen in Kolin is a single factory, not 3 separated...

Current Skoda's portfolio:

the smallest model Fabia:


Octavia Scout Estate:




Octavia hatchback:


Roomster MPV:




Superb:


Yeti concept (production scheduled to start in 2008):
