Skoda Vision E to come in SUV and coupe styles
The first standalone electric vehicle from Skoda will be an SUV and is due in 2021.
Based on the Vision E concept, Skoda will offer both a traditional SUV wagon variant alongside a version with a coupe-like roofline. Both will ride on the new MEB electric platform from Volkswagen.
The two will sit between the Karoq and Kodiaq in terms of size, and employ a battery that will be capable of a range up to 480km. Rumours suggest a price similar to a top-spec Kodiaq. Inside, the SUVs will adopt the ‘floating’ screen from the Vision X concept shown earlier in the year.
Before the Vision E models Skoda will have the electric Citigo up and running, which is closely related to the VW e-Up and future Seat eMii, all Europe-destined models. It’s said the E Citigo will help Skoda’s dealer and service network ready itself for the onslaught of more EVs to come.
