Yesterday Škoda presented a conceptual model that advances the forms of one of its next models, the Škoda Vision 7S. This has brought with it the communication of various aspects and adjustments for Škoda, among which is the confirmation of three electric cars that will reach the range of the Czech firm in the coming years, as well as the presentation of a new corporate image in the that a most current and technological design logo will set the tone.
The new brand identity has been presented as part of the strategy for 2030 which the brand has called “Next Level – Škoda Strategy 2030”. A plan that fully affects the image of the firm, and that will be marked mainly by a new design language in its products, the new logo and a comprehensive update of the corporate identity. The brand will start using this new image from 2023 onwards.
With this, Škoda is accelerating and expanding its electric range, all with the aim that by 2030 more than 70% of brand sales will correspond to electric cars. Three new models will be added to the current Skoda Enyaq iV, which will gradually arrive until 2026.
The newly introduced the Škoda Vision 7S represents a specific advance of one of these models, which will be a seven-seater, while the other two promise to be below both this conceptual model and the Enyaq iV in terms of size.
One of these models will be a small electric car, from the B segment. A car that is part of the Volkswagen Group’s compact electric car offensive, whose Batteries will be manufactured in the confirmed Spanish factory in Sagunto.
It is confirmed that both in the case of the Cupra and Volkswagen models, the manufacturing will be carried out by SEAT, who is developing the platform that will support the trio of models, while with the Škoda model it is not yet confirmed. so be it so the firm tries to take the production of it to its factory in the Czech Republic.
If the urban model is finally located in the B segment, and the Enyaq and the 7-seater SUV by dimensions are located within the C segment, it is expected that this compact SUV will be the model chosen by Škoda to compete in the C segment, a category in which until now only a few models militate. Among them is the new Renault Megane E-Tech, the Volkswagen ID.3, the Cupra Born or the recently presented MG4.
As for the arrival order Of each of these models, it is only confirmed that the batch of compact electric cars from Volkswagen will hit the streets in 2026, so it will be by then when the Škoda B-segment model hits the streets. The model that will see the light as a result of the Vision 7S, since it is the first to be seen in conceptual form, will presumably be the first to be marketed, while nothing has been officially confirmed for the C-segment model.
