Default Skoda's electric vehicle portfolio: Hatchback, Coupe SUV & Sports Car

With the VAG group's new found thrust on EV's, Skoda plans an electric hatchback, coupe SUV and sports car.

The Czech manufacturer will launch its electrified vehicle strategy with a Superb plug-in hybrid and an electric version of its Citigo in 2019. But it will really push ahead with its dedicated EV plans a year later, with the production version of its Vision E concept, which was revealed at this year’s Shanghai Motor Show. It’ll be one of the first cars to appear on the VW Group’s new MEB chassis architecture, which has been designed to accommodate all-electric powertrains.
Skoda is gearing up for a double electric onslaught by the start of the next decade, launching a pure-electric hatchback and a coupe-SUV that’s likely to become the most expensive vehicle in the brand’s 122-year history.
The coupe-SUV will sit between the Karoq and Kodiaq in length, but the clever packaging allowed by MEB should mean that its interior space is at least a match for the latter of those models.

New Skoda EV hatch could get Felicia E name.
This car – which could potentially bring back a famous old Skoda name by carrying the badge Felicia E – will, in effect, be the firm’s version of the I.D. hatchback, complete with that car’s rear-mounted 168bhp electric motor.

The ‘Felicia E’ is likely to be about the same size as the Rapid Spaceback, so it will be smaller than an Octavia. But the packaging advantages offered by MEB mean that its cabin space could come close to that of the roomy Superb.
VW has stated that this I.D. hatch will cost roughly the same as a well specced diesel Golf – around 26,000 – and Skoda is likely to undercut that figure slightly, giving the Felicia E a starting price of around 24,000.

Smaller Karoq-sized electric SUV and 300bhp sports car by 2025
