Three New EVs For Skoda

Tue 29th Mar 2022

After closing on almost one million worldwide sales in 2021, Czech motor manufacturer Skoda has announced big plans for the future which include electric innovation and a new design language.

“In the second half of 2022, Skoda Auto will be unveiling a new design language,” a Skoda spokesman said.

“Following the central theme of ‘modern solid’ it will be rolled out gradually over the coming year.

“In doing so, the Czech car manufacturer is turning its focus towards family and outdoor lifestyles, taking into account its customers’ rapidly changing expectations and needs.”

The company sold 878,200 vehicles last year, with revenues rising by 3.3 per cent to €17.7 billion. It was a fantastic effort, in challenging circumstances, on the tail end of pandemic lockdowns and also the follow-on supply-chain issues of the semi-conductor shortage. The company got through the worst of the worries by forming their own Semi-Conductor Task Force, which has helped them plan for ‘significant improvement’ in the second half of this year.

That optimism is reflected in the bold announcement of three new and affordable EVs to the line-up, following on from a new Fabia this year.

“Following the successful launch of the Enyaq iV and the introduction of the Enyaq Coupe, Skoda Auto is planning three more all-electric models before 2030, all of which will be below the Enyaq in terms of price and size,” the statement continued.

“Depending on market developments, the share of all-electric models in Europe is expected to rise to 50% to 70%.”
