Toyota, Peugeot, Citroen
How can 3 car manufacturers (Toyota, Peugeot, Citroen) produce different car models on the same production line? How can a Czech company, where mostly French cars are produced have such a Japanese feel to it?
TPCA is a green factory producing the smallest cars on the market with as many as 99% of its products going to customers abroad. Situated in the vicinity of the historic town of Kutna Hora, the factory visit can easily be combined with the UNESCO listed Bone Chapel in Sedlec
and the historical centre of Kutna Hora

Excursion to Toyota, Peugeot, Citroen Plant:
About an hour and half away from Prague, the TPCA
plant is situated just off the Hradec Kralove motorway. We’ll be introduced to the history and production process with a short film by 2 Toyota employees. After the movie we get on the factory train to experience all levels of production (45min). At the end of the visit (usually 2hrs all together), there will be time for questions and discussion. TPCA employees will be our guides all along the way.
Remember to wear long sleeves and proper shoes without heels! No photo or camera allowed within the factory premises!
Did you know that...
• The most affordable of the 3 almost identical models is the Toyota Aygo. The most sold one in the Czech republic (2014) was the Peugeot 107.
• The automotive industry represents almost 20% of all Czech exports.
• Almost 120 thousand less cars were produced in 2014 as opposed to 2009 due to the introduction of VW UP, Skoda CITYGO and SEAT MIO. The last year production amounted to 203 thousand cars. Skoda produces about 5 times as many cars, though with 8 times as many empolyees.
