The plans of the Czech company were declassified by the new head of the brand, Thomas Schaefer.
The new head of the Skoda car company, Thomas Schaefer, reveals plans for a new urban car and an all-electric hatchback. Skoda’s Citigo may be revived as a new all-electric city car, which will become an analog of the Volkswagen ID. 1 from the Czech brand.
Volkswagen is reportedly developing a smaller version of its MEB platform, called MEB-entry, and a car built on its basis will most likely get the name ID.1. now Skoda’s new Chairman Thomas Schaefer has confirmed that brad will also release a novelty on the new architecture.
It is expected that the entry-level MEB family will use a low-cost version of the architecture, which means the length of the car is about four meters – the same as that of a modern VW Polo. VW executives have previously stated their intention to set the starting price below 20,000 pounds, which Skoda will probably try to reduce. There are also rumors that Volkswagen is planning an SUV based on the MEB platform, which will most likely receive the name ID. 2.
However, Schaefer cautioned that we are unlikely to see a new electric city car from Skoda until the middle of the decade, as the company will first focus on launching the Enyaq electric crossover next year, and then on a smaller hatchback model.
