Škoda Auto is an automobile manufacturer based in the Czech Republic. Škoda became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group in 2000, positioned as the entry brand to the group. The origins of what became Škoda Auto go back to the early 1890s, when the company started out manufacturing bicycles. Skoda's founders (Laurin & Klement) then started with the production of motorcycles and by 1905 the firm was manufacturing automobiles. After WWII, the company was nationalised, but retained a good reputation until the 1960s, producing models such as the Škoda 440 Spartak, 445 Octavia, Felicia and Škoda 1000 MB. The bad perception of Škoda in Western Europe has changed completely since its takeover by VW in 1991. In 2012 Škoda sold a record number of 939,202 cars, or 1.6% of global car sales
