Skoda will debut its first ever electric car in 2020/21 as a variant of the all-new VW Group ‘MEB’ battery-electric platform, in a major push to offer electric variants of several models.

Skoda engineers are part of the planning team working on new VW Group battery-electric technology, which has a target to produce a car with a range of 480-plus kilometres, 15-minute charging time and a cost below a comparative combustion-engined vehicle.

The first Skoda with an electrified powertrain will be a plug-in hybrid Superb, expected in 2019, which uses batteries and motors available as part of the MQB platform component set.

The more rapid introduction by Skoda of plug-in hybrids and BEVs is part of Maier’s new ten-year corporate plan called ‘Strategy 2025’, which replaces the previous ‘Strategy 2018’ plan, which had no plans for electric Skodas.
