And, to prove it, it announces the launch of six new battery-powered models that will enter the market between 2024 and 2026.

The Small is the model that many customers will be waiting for, as it promises to be Skoda’s most affordable tram, expected to be offered for around €25,000. The bodywork will adopt the SUV-style shape, but with a length of only 4.1 meters, similar to the Cupra UrbanRebel, a small and urban model with dimensions close to the Fabia, but slightly longer and with a sharper SUV look. will be revealed in 2025.
The Skoda Compact will arrive a year earlier, in 2024, and will adopt the Elroq name. The shapes will be those of an SUV, with a total length of 4.5 meters, which puts it in dimensions close to the VW ID.4 and Cupra Tavascan. In the Czech brand range, The new Elroq will be the successor of the Karoq (4.39 m), but now 100% electric.. If the Small promises to be the most important tram for countries like ours, the Compact will be the best weapon to compete in the main countries of the European market.
The Space will be the new top of the range brand, an SUV with a big and bulky look, which should not differ much from the Vision 7S model. The generous dimensions will allow Space to assemble three rows of seats and seven seats, in a style that is scheduled to go on sale in 2026 and with a new stylistic language that the builder calls Solid Modern.
The fourth and final electric vehicle that Skoda currently has in the works is known as the Combi, a name that in the Czech brand is associated with vans.. The future model, which will be the last to arrive, only in 2026, will be 4.7 m long, 16 cm lower than the current Superb car with combustion engines. But it is very possible that, considering the special platform of electric cars, which allows to pass a short front, the future Combi with battery power can provide a passenger room and a trunk at the level of a Superb van, despite measuring small. .
From the information revealed by Skoda, it is possible to confirm that if 2024, 2025 and 2026 live on the new things powered by batteries, in 2023 new models will be basically modification current models with a combustion engine. This is what is expected of the Kamiq, Scala, Kodiaq and the updated Superb, in the five-door saloon version and in the Combi wagon, and it is expected that these models will continue in production until the brand abandons the petrol-powered mechanics. .
