Skoda is accelerating and expanding its electric vehicle plans. Instead of 2030, as previously planned, by 2026 Skoda will release three new purely electric models: a small car, a compact SUV and a seven-seater SUV.
The Vision 7S concept unveiled gives a concrete look at the seven-seat electric SUV and a new design language. The electric car is based on a modular platform (MEB) from the Volkswagen Group.
Many specifications are not announced. It is known that the concept is equipped with an 89 kWh battery. This should allow reaching a maximum range of over 600 kilometers over WLTP. Charging power should be no more than 200 kW. “These parameters highlight the technical capabilities of the modular electrification kit,” says Skoda.
With an accelerated project in the electrical sector, Skoda has also unveiled its new brand. According to Skoda, the focus is on a new design language, a new logo and a major brand identity update.
Volkswagen has set itself the goal of increasing the share of all-electric vehicles in the brand's sales in Europe to more than 70 percent by 2030. According to the information, another 5.6 billion euros will be invested in e-mobility and 700 million euros in digitization over the next five years.
