Skoda’s New sub-Enyaq Electric Vehicles

Skoda Managing Director Thomas Schäfer revealed new electric cars prospects of the firm. Skoda’s next three electric vehicles will be smaller than the Enyaq SUV and Enyaq Coupé.

The new Enyaq Coupé iV is Skoda’s second model which is built on the Volkswagen Group’s electric MEB platform. As per earlier media reports, a smaller sedan-style car is lined up in the company’s next priorities list. This will be its first model on the compact MEB Entry platform. The new model is set to replace the Citigo e-iV model that went out of production in 2020.

Responding to the question, ‘when Skoda would showcase a model using that platform,’ Schäfer said, “We’re coming shortly with an announcement on this one, but rest assured, it will be differentiated from our sister brands and a beautiful concept that really fits Skoda.”

The platform is endorsed by other major carmakers as well. Last year, the Volkswagen ID Life and Cupra Urban Rebel concept previewed the first cars to use the new MEB platform. These are expected to arrive by 2025.

Larger Electric Vehicles (EVs) in future

While the task at hand for the brand is Electric Vehicles below the Enyaq, the firm hasn’t ruled out launching larger EVs – a 7-seat SUV or an MPV – in the future. These will be similar to the forthcoming model ID Buzz.

“Never say never. It’s one step at a time – but we’ve promised that the three models below the Enyaq are the priority for now,” he said.

The Czech major has set imposing targets of 50-70 percent sales of pure-electric cars by 2030, with plans for a major expansion in the future.

India in view…

Skoda seems to hold the Indian market in high regard for electric vehicles expansion. Last month, Skoda’s Kodiaq SUV Facelift entered the Indian market. Also, the carmaker looks forward to the launch of the Slavi, its new midsize sedan, in March. Apart from that, there are plans for six new models for the Indian market in the year 2022. This will include the aforementioned SUV and sedan. Skoda is also considering bringing the all-electric Enyaq iV SUV to India.
