Skoda Octavia could receive a fully electric version


The Skoda Octavia could receive an all-electric version in the coming years. This would not mean the disappearance of thermal engine models.

The Skoda Octavia is already in its fourth generation, and an electric version could be on the cards. In addition to it, we should see two more electric models, one being the production version of the 7S concept.

In June 2021, former Skoda CEO Thomas Schäfer announced that three electric vehicles would be built before the end of the decade. All would be smaller and cheaper than the Skoda Enyaq. One of these will be a production version of the Vision 7S crossover concept will be one of them. There will also be an entry-level model, which appeared in a teaser earlier this year in May.

The third vehicle could even be the Skoda Octavia, in one form or another. According to the Autocar publication, the Czech manufacturer has begun development of a fully electric version of the compact. It seems that this version will not use the platform that Enyaq was built on, but will adopt the new SSP platform. It is said to use a more technologically advanced battery compared to the Vision 7S concept’s 89kWh pack. About that, Skoda says it can generate an autonomy of 600 kilometers and a maximum charging power of 200 kilowatts.

The standard version is expected to have two front-mounted electric motors, one for each wheel, in time. The sporty variant, the RS, could add two in the rear, creating an all-wheel drive system.

For now, the closest thing to an electric Octavia is the plug-in hybrid version. It comes in two power ratings, 204 and 245 horsepower. The most powerful is intended for the RS iV version.
