Automotive industry

The development of the Croatian automotive industry is based on a long tradition in related sectors such as metal production, welding, plastics manufacturing and engineering. Croatian companies dealing with the production of automotive parts have a tradition in high-precision manufacturing with zero tolerance for breakdowns and the main competitive advantage is the excellent quality of their products. Over three quarters of the added value in the automotive industry is realized in the production of components for installation and activities related to the development of vehicles and related processes. On the Croatian market are companies that have successfully integrated into the system of supplying spare parts for the world’s top automobile manufacturers (PSA, GM, Fiat, BMW, Audi, Ford, Renault, Toyota, Volvo, etc). About 90% of the revenue in the automotive industry is generated through exports

Croatia also boasts the production of electric cars XD (DOK-ING and Concept One – Rimac Automobili). The benefits of joining the automotive industry in Croatia is a well-educated workforce, excellent infrastructure and proximity to the markets and automotive production facilities in the countries of Western and Central Europe.
