Skoda Gives Production Nod To PHEV In 2019, Followed By BEV
Škoda (part of Volkswagen Group) unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show concept plug-in hybrid SUV VisionS.
According to the Škoda CEO Bernhard Maier, the first production plug-in hybrid from Škoda should be expected “by 2019“. An unexpected development for sure.
By that time of course, there will already be other plug-in SUVs from Volkswagen and Audi, which are more on the forefront of innovations in the Volkswagen Group.
The second good news is that “shortly after“, there will be also also pure electric Škoda. We assume 2020.
Mobility must become clean. We have therefore fitted the VisionS with electric motors and plug-in technology. By 2019, we will offer the first Škoda with this technology. A purely electric vehicle will follow shortly after.—Bernhard Maier
