Skoda has announced that by 2030 it will launch 3 additional electric models, as part of its “Next Level – Skoda Strategy 2030” strategy, which will lead the brand to the current decade, with a horizon of 2030.
The strategy, as presented by Thomas Schefer, CEO of Skoda, includes ambitious goals. The Czech company will seek to expand further internationally, to become even more electrified and to move fully into the digital age. In terms of sales, in Europe the goal is to enter the top-5 of the most popular brands while globally the goal is to top the big markets such as India, Russia and North Africa.
Skoda wants to sell 1.5 million cars a year worldwide by 2030, with the North American market not on its agenda.
The goal for the Czech brand is to become a hub for the development of electrification within the VW Group. The Czech Republic is already the only country outside Germany where electric models based on MEB are manufactured, while Skoda factories manufacture components for Group electric models, with high-voltage batteries soon to be added.
The new strategy extends the previous one, known as Strategy 2025, with a time horizon of 2030, with the 3 new electric models contributing to the fact that by 2030, 50-70% of Skoda’s European sales will consist of purely electric models.
One electric model will be the corresponding version of VW ID.1, the second will be a compact crossover and the third will be an electric sedan the size of the Octavia.
Skoda also announced that the new Fabia will not be offered in an RS version, as he stressed that it is difficult to create a business plan that would make the model profitable.
At the environmental level, Skoda aims to reduce the total emissions of its fleet worldwide by 50%, by 2030, compared to 2020. Skoda already plants are environmentally neutral in terms of carbon footprint and this is the goal to be achieved for all brand factories in Czech Republic and India by 2030.
The above, combined with growth in terms of economic indicators (return on sales 8%), opportunities for workforce development (in 2030 one in four managerial positions will be held by women) as well as the simplification of the range offered (thanks to electricity) are expected to provide Skoda with even greater growth over the current decade.
