We have been testing and developing automotive electronic and software systems to help change the automotive industry since 2001. We are a strategic partner not only for Škoda Auto, but also for the other members of the Volkswagen Group.
Our company was established as a subsidiary of TÜV Süd Czech (a 51% share) and Škoda Auto (a 49% share) under the name “e4t electronics for transportation”. The group company called Carmeq bought out TÜV Süd Czech´s share in October 2011 and e4t became Digiteq Automotive in March 2018.. The three pillars for all our work are: the digital environment, technology and the quality of our outputs. In December 2020 Carmeq merged with Volkswgen Car.SW Org. and Car.SW Org. became our new shareholder.
