Skoda EV ready to shock at Shang­hai

Auto Express - - News -

SKODA will present its first vi­sion of an all-elec­tric fu­ture at next month’s Shang­hai Mo­tor Show.

Dur­ing an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with Auto Ex­press in Geneva, CEO Bern­hard Maier con­firmed the brand had an elec­tric shock in store for the Chi­nese show in late April.

Talk­ing about the brand’s plans for fu­ture pow­er­trains, Maier said: “In Shang­hai, we will show a sur­prise. It will give an out­look of elec­tri­cal mo­bil­ity at Skoda.”

Specif­i­cally what Skoda in­tends to dis­play is un­clear. But a con­cept that pre­views an all-elec­tric model, due in around 2020, and based on the VW Group’s new MEB elec­tri­cal ar­chi­tec­ture, is said to be likely.
