Škoda to Expand BEV Lineup to Six Models by 2026

Škoda says it will expand its BEV range to six models by 2026 to include four all-new vehicles and two updated Enyaq iV family models.

The new models will see a small BEV, a compact SUV successor to the Karoq dubbed Elroq, a larger station-wagon model and a seven-seater full-size SUV called Space based on a concept car presented in August 2022. The expansion is part of the automaker’s pledge to invest a total of $6.1Bn in e-mobility by 2027. However, during the course of the transition phase to e-mobility, ICE powered models and plug-in hybrid powertrains will continue to be a mainstay of Škoda’s portfolio.

Launching in 2024, the Elroq SUV will measure about 14.7ft long. A year later the entry-level model will bear the working title “Small” expected to be priced for affordability at around $27,500. This model will be produced at a Volkswagen Group Plant in Spain and is expected to measure 13.45ft long and offer a similar luggage capacity as the existing Scala model.

The station-wagon “Estate” will play a key role among the four new models. This approximately 15.4ft long model will be the brand’s first all-electric estate car and be introduced in 2026. Škoda’s largest future BEV will be the “Space” – the production version of the Vision 7S concept It will be around 16ft long and round off upper end of the portfolio.

Klaus Zellmer, chairman of the board of Škoda, said: “With six new all-electric models across all segments by 2026, Škoda Auto is moving even faster towards sustainable, electric, individual mobility. Together with our new and highly efficient conventional and hybrid-powered models, we are offering the best of both worlds – meeting our existing and new customers’ needs around the globe in this time of transition.”

    $27.500 (base) stretched the term “affordability.”

      I agree and in the same breath do not believe BEVs should be getting any government subsidies when there are “cleaner”, when taking into account lifecycle CO2 costs in most parts of the world, ICE technologies available at a cheaper price.
