– Will observe Enyaq and the manufacturing model of the Vision 7S Concept
– Might not be based mostly on the acquainted MEB platform
Skoda has already promised three pure electrical automobiles earlier than the flip of the last decade. First of the three is the Enyaq iV (and its coupe model). Following it’ll be the manufacturing model of the Vision 7S idea we noticed final month, which is able to be an electrical MPV. Now, the third in line to put on the pure-electric badging for Skoda would be their high-selling Octavia.
The subsequent replace for the Octavia is a mid-life replace set for MY2024, and with this, the EV model would arrive alongside the usual ICE one. The electrical Octavia will be based mostly on Skoda’s upcoming SSP electrical platform as a substitute of Volkswagen Group’s MEB underpinnings. It is probably going to have a twin motor setup in the usual kind, whereas the RS model will add one other motor on the rear axle making it AWD.
Surprisingly, Skoda isn’t choosing their Superb flagship sedan for the pure EV model. This would possibly be due to the upper demand for Octavia in lots of worldwide markets. The Czech carmaker already sells PHEV variations of the Superb and Octavia, and these will proceed to be on sale alongside the EV derivatives.
