Auto is presenting its new brand identity as part of the Next Level – Skoda Strategy
2030. The focus is on a new design language, a new logo and comprehensively
updating the corporate identity.
In addition, the Czech car manufacturer is
accelerating and expanding its e-campaign: Skoda Auto is going to have three
new all-electric models on the market as early as 2026, with more to follow.
The Vision 7S concept study provides a specific preview of one of these models.
The all-electric share of the Skoda brand’s European vehicle sales will rise to
over 70% by 2030. To support this, the Czech car manufacturer will be investing
a further Euros 5.6 billion in e-mobility and Euros 700 million in
digitalisation over the next five years.
From 2030, the
Czech and Indian plants will be manufacturing cars with net-zero emissions. The
Vrchlabí plant is leading the way; the site has already been CO2-neutral since
a small car, there are plans for a compact SUV and a seven-seater for families.
The Vision 7S concept study, with its range of over 600 kilometres and peak
charging rate of 200 kW, offers a specific preview of the seven-seater electric
SUV. During the transition phase to e-mobility, the brand is strengthening its
product portfolio of highly efficient combustion engines and will be unveiling
the new-generation Superb and Kodiaq in the second half of next year. The
refreshed Octavia will follow in 2024.

customer base. The concept study is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular

range of over 600 kilometres in the WLTP cycle.

for the electric and digital age, which will gradually be rolled out starting
