Škoda Auto have announced they will accelerate their e-campaign and will grow the BEV line-up to a total of six models by 2026. The Czech brand will have a particularly diverse electric portfolio in four years’ time, offering the right vehicle for every customer. In addition to the Škoda Enyaq and the Enyaq Coupé, due to be updated in 2025 in line with the new Modern Solid design language, Škoda is planning to introduce four new all electric vehicles: a “Small” as an entry-level electric SUV, a “Compact”, which will officially be called Elroq, a “Combi” estate model and a “Space”, the production version of the Vision 7S concept. Škoda Auto will have invested a total of 5.6 billion euros in e-mobility by 2027.

In 2024, the first upcoming BEV vehicle will be the “Compact”, which will officially be called Elroq. Measuring around 4.50 metres in length and boasting a similar combination of compact dimensions and a spacious, very practical interior, the Elroq will be the all-electric successor to the Škoda Karoq. It will further expand the Czech brand’s model portfolio in the SUV segment. The future entry-level model will bear the working title “Small”. It will be a sub-compact car priced around 25,000 euros, that will make electric mobility affordable. The model will be produced at a Volkswagen Group Plant in Spain and introduced in 2025. At around 4.10 metres in length, it will offer a similar luggage capacity as the Scala.

In 2025, the Enyaq and Enyaq Coupé will receive a comprehensive update and adopt the new Modern Solid design language first showcased on the Vision 7S. The Enyaq iV models were the first Škoda vehicles to be based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Platform (MEB) and as such have been emblematic of the brand’s new era of electric mobility since 2020 (Enyaq Coupé since 2022).

The “Combi” will play a key role among the four new models. This approximately 4.70 metre-long model will be the brand’s first all-electric estate car, taking the strengths of this particularly popular and successful Škoda body style into the electric age. The “Combi” estate BEV will be introduced in 2026. The largest of Škoda’s future BEVs will be the “Space” – the production version of the Vision 7S concept It will be around 4.90 metres long and round off upper end of the portfolio. These announcements highlight Škoda’s ambition to position themselves at the forefront of EV offerings not just here in Ireland but across the markets in which they operate in.
