We expect the new Skoda to launch in 2025 alongside the Cupra and Volkswagen versions, and the car will feature Skoda’s ‘modern solid’ design language. Technology from parent company VW is sure to appear on the car.
While we can’t see many design details from the teaser image, the overall proportions suggest it will be a Fabia-sized supermini. Therefore, it is likely to use the new MEB Entry platform and will create competition for Volkswagen ID.1 coming soon.
The design looks much simpler than the sporty Cupra and more angular than the round ID model. The large wheel arches are almost square and there is a simple shoulder line running from the headlights to the taillights. There aren’t many front or rear overhangs, suggesting that Skoda plans to use every inch of that new platform to help with battery layout and maximize passenger space.
Prices for the entry-level Skoda EV could be lower than its sibling from VW, so could start at under €20,000 (£17,123).
In another social media post, VW also confirmed their new Sagunto electric vehicle battery factory in Spain will start construction in 2023 – this is where we can expect new batteries for These new electric supercars are in production.
Battery capacity is unlikely to exceed the largest 77kWh currently found in the larger VW ID.3 or Cupra was born so expect around 58kWh as the limit for the electric Skoda. However, with the smaller body, this can still result in a range of about 280 miles.
This isn’t the only electric Skoda the Czech company has introduced in recent weeks. One blurred image of an all-electric Skoda SUV was released in March 2022, and while it doesn’t offer much benefit, from that we can determine that a new EV SUV sitting below Skoda’s Enyaq is coming.
