Skoda evaluating Elroq electric SUV for India

The Elroq will get three battery options: 55kWh, 63kWh and 82kWh, and will come in single and dual-motor configurations.

Skoda is set to enter the Indian electric vehicle space with the Enyaq iV. As per the latest reports, the carmaker is also considering the Elroq for the Indian market.

Petr Janeba, Brand Director at Skoda India, said, “The Enyaq and Elroq are based on the same platform. It’s a different chassis, but actually very similar. So, there is a big efficiency in the parts and components business, which we have calculated.”

The Elroq, much like the Enyaq iV, is based on the MEB platform. Measuring 4.2 meters in length, the Elroq is slightly smaller than the Enyaq iV. Once launched, it will get three battery options: 55kWh, 63kWh and 82kWh, and will come in single and dual-motor configurations.

Skoda is reportedly keen to assemble both EVs in India. A study to assess the feasibility of building the Enyaq iV and Elroq locally is currently being carried out. Depending on the outcome of this study, Skoda could begin local assembly of SUVs in the last quarter of 2025.

The carmaker is also exploring the possibility of manufacturing EVs under the government’s EV policy, which requires companies to invest at least Rs 4,150 crore and set up a manufacturing unit within 3 years.
