The electric Skoda Octavia is also expected to get a more advanced battery pack compared to the Skoda Vision 7S concept vehicle, which with 89 kWh offers a range of 600 km and a charging power of 200 kW.
It is thought that the Skoda Octavia electric vehicle may get dual electric motors mounted at the front, one for each wheel, while an RS derivative could be added at the rear which will provide an all-wheel-drive setup.
Skoda has started the Octavia’s transition to electric technology before it via a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
In an earlier report, Skoda Chief Klaus Zellmer announced that the automaker is also working on a successor to the all-electric Skoda Fabia.
The electric Skoda Fabia will offer a new design format that the company released following the launch of the Vision 7S electric concept vehicle.
He also stated that one of the main challenges in the development of this electric vehicle is the considerable cost.
“The biggest challenge right now is the cost of battery-electric vehicles, especially when it comes to producing a car the size of the Fabia. We have to be a little patient,” he said.
