The city on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea ranks among the major start-up centres worldwide. Israel also globally ranks among the leading countries in the field of autonomous motor vehicles; more than 500 new companies focused on the development of modern transport systems are operating in the country.
Over the last two years, ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab Israel has become a leading player on Tel Aviv’s booming startup and tech scene. We have partnered with many promising local startups on a number of different digital mobility services as well as innovative hardware and software solutions.
10 June 2019 - Last week marked the end of the glory ride for the Slovak-Singaporean team Maasters - they visited the prestigious EcoMotion Conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, where they met with representatives of ŠKODA AUTO, ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, as well as with potential investors in their project.
6 December 2018 – The city of Tel Aviv is one of the world’s most important hotspots for IT start-ups. Could there be a more fitting location for the world premiere of the new ŠKODA SCALA? The compact model has taken a huge leap in terms of connectivity with its new mobile online infotainment services. But there are many other good reasons for the Czech automobile manufacturer to be celebrating the world premiere of the new ŠKODA SCALA compact model in the Mediterranean this Thursday. In partnership with importer Champion Motors, the brand is the strongest European car manufacturer in Israel, and the two companies also operate a joint venture in Tel Aviv – the ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab Israel. This is where ŠKODA works alongside innovative start-ups on digitization and mobility services.
29 November 2018 – ŠKODA AUTO is getting more and more involved in the high-tech hotspot Israel: the Czech car manufacturer has formed further partnerships with Israeli start-ups thanks to a strong local scouting presence. Some of the technologies developed are already being tested in a real deployment. To mark the importance Israel has for future technologies within the brand, the world premiere of the all-new compact ŠKODA SCALA will be hosted in Tel Aviv.
30 May 2018 – ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab Israel Ltd is ŠKODA AUTO’s scout looking for start-ups in Tel Aviv to collaborate on future shared business ideas.
