Skoda has enormous ambitions for the upcoming years, including the introduction of six new electric vehicles by 2026.
A press conference was conducted by Skoda today to unveil plans for a real EV invasion, with no less than six models arriving by 2026 to address diverse market niches. Leading the charge will be the Elroq, a “Compact” model that will be on sale in 2024. It is being created as the Karoq’s electric replacement and will be around 4.5 meters/177.1 inches long.
The year 2025 will be particularly busy for the Czech automaker since it plans to release the second-generation Enyaq & Enyaq Coupe as well as an entry-level EV that SEAT will produce in Spain. The subcompact variant, which is now just known as the “Small,” will be around 4.1 meters/161.4 inches in length, have load space similar to the Scala, and have a starting price of about $26,700/€25,000.
The “Combi” expected in 2026 will likely be the most intriguing of the six. According to Skoda, the wagon will be roughly 4.7 meters/185 inches long and resemble Octavia. The “Space” will enter the lineup in the same year as a seven-seater SUV that is 4.9 meters/193 inches long and has “enormous interior space.” The 2022 Vision 7S concept has previously given a sneak peek of the three-row family car.
Skoda Hopes That Sales Of Evs Will Make Up 70% Of All Yearly Deliveries
By 2027, the Volkswagen Group will invest $6.1 billion/€5.6 billion in these six cars, which are planned to sport the company’s new “Modern Solid” design language. By the end of the decade, Skoda hopes that sales of EVs will make up 70% of all yearly deliveries. Meanwhile, “car sculptures” that showcase the expanded electric portfolio are giving us a rough indication of the new aesthetic approach across numerous categories.
Skoda states that the Kodiaq and the Superb liftback and wagon from the next generation will both go on sale this fall and have plug-in hybrid powertrains. The brand’s “most cutting-edge gasoline and diesel engines” will be used to power the ICE variants.
