Skoda has recently announced that it is making its business more sustainable and electrifying its lineup and has also announced that it has launched three all-new EVs by 2026.  

The company has said that it expects 70% of the vehicles it sells to be fully electric by the end of the decade as it transitions into only selling EVs after 2035.  

The first new EV will be twinned with models from Volkswagen and Seat and the smallest electric offering will be built on a simplified version of the MEB platform, called MEB Lite.  

The second model is reportedly an all-electric replacement of the current Octavia which will not use the MEB platform and instead will be built on the Volkswagen group’s new EV architecture called SSP.  

Earlier reports have suggested that the new EVs would be a subcompact model, a compact SUV and a larger seven-seater SUV that the company previewed with the Vision 7S concept which was revealed earlier this year.  

The new Vision 7S concept allows us to see where the company’s design ideas were heading over the next decade as it reveals a basic aesthetic that will be launched at the end of the decade or further beyond.
