After VW and Cupra, Skoda should soon bring a fully electric compact based on MEB. LatestCarNews shows what the little electric Czech could look like.
Golf, Octavia, Leon. Tiguan , Kodiaq , Tarraco . VW, Skoda, and Seat each have their own offshoot of the Cash cows in their program. That applies at least to models with a combustion engine – when it comes to e-cars, the Volkswagen trinity seems to be at odds. When it comes to e-SUVs, Seat is lagging behind, but Skoda does not yet have an electric compact in its range. The gap in the Skoda portfolio could soon be filled, as the British car portal, ” autocar.co.uk ” reports. The next electric Skoda is supposed to be an offshoot of the VW ID.3. The illustrator shows what the car could look like!
The compact electric Skoda is based on the MEB platform and should take over the wheelbase of the ID.3 (2.77 meters). However, Skoda attaches great importance to a spacious interior, which is why the Czech version could exceed the 4.26-meter length of the ID.3. In keeping with the zeitgeist, we expect a crossover-like appearance. As Skoda’s head of design Oliver Stefani announced, future electric cars of the brand will be based on the design of the Enyaq iV.
That is why our sketch has its distinctive front. Sharp lines and folds set it apart from the more rounded VW brother. As with the SUV, the light strip in the grill should cost extra. At the rear, 3D taillights and central brand lettering are to be expected. In the interior, typical Skoda Simply Clever solutions are likely to find their way.
Up to 299 hp would be possible in Skoda ‘s ID.3 brother
The compact Skoda would undoubtedly take overdrives and batteries from the ID.3. For the time being, this means only rear-wheel drive, with two power levels of 107 kW (145 PS ) or 150 kW (204 PS). In addition, a 299 hp RS model with an all-wheel-drive would also be possible as a GTX offshoot. It is very likely that the two battery sizes with 58 kWh or 77 kWh will also be available, which enables a WLTP range of between 427 and 553 kilometers with the ID.3, depending on the engine. It is possible that a smaller battery for a range of around 350 kilometers will follow.
There is a grant of 900 euros for your own wall box. To the offer, It has not yet been confirmed whether Skoda will bring an ID.3 offshoot. But it would be very surprising if not. We assume that the compact electric Czech will be presented in 2022 and will be available for order from 2023. The prices should then start at just under 30,000 euros. And the model name? If the car goes in the direction of crossover, there is definitely a “q” at the end – followed by an “iV”.
