Skoda has revealed details about their upcoming electric cars and SUVs – These includes a small electric car of 4.1m length and compact electric SUV of 4.5m length

Skoda has extensive plans to expand its electric vehicle range in the coming 5-7 years. The new electric line-up will include three new SUVs, an estate car and two new Enyaq models. This complete range of electric vehicles will cover Small, Compact, Combi, and Space styles along with facelifted versions of the Enyaq, Enyaq Coupe and the Elroq Crossover.

Apart from the new lineup of electric vehicles, late last year, Skoda had also announced a new brand identity. It includes a new logo and brand identity which is part of the automaker’s Strategy 2030. The new logo is two dimensional as against the older three dimensional design, thus making it easier to recognize and print. The new logo will be seen on the front and rear of all cars and will start appearing on all new Skoda models from 2024.

New Compact Electric SUV and Small Electric Car

Of the 6 new electric cars that have been announced, the two that have the highest probability of making it to India are the Compact Electric SUV called Elroq and yet to be named small electric car. New Skoda Elroq EV will be 4.5m in length while the small electric car will be 4.1m in length.

Based on the company’s Modern Solid design theme, the Elroq will get a tough front end named Tech Deck, squared off wheel arches and large skid plates at the front and rear. It is expected to receive a 77kWh battery pack offering a range of around 480 kms.
