What sounded like a rumor has ended up being confirmed unofficially, but unofficially. The skoda elroq It will be the official name of the smallest electric car in the Czech family. With a format radically different from that of the Skoda Enyaq, the little Elroq will try to make every urban journey as easy and comfortable as possible. Although the doubt of the name has already been cleared, there are still a few details to know about him.
Skoda’s Elroq will be one of the three points of the Volkswagen Group’s most affordable electric trident. It will form an attack with its twin brothers, the Volkswagen ID.1 and the CUPRA, which at the moment we do not know what name it will have. All three will be developed at the same time, under the same standards and the same technology. Then it will be each brand that determines the appearance, which in the case of Skoda will be under the Modern Solid emblem that they presented a few months ago.
The leak of the definitive name has come from Auto.cz. Thanks to an internal report in Czech we have been able to know that this will be the name of the smallest of the house, which will replace the current Skoda Citigo iV. Skoda workers’ union report refers to a “passability” test of the Elroq between individual sections. In addition to the name, it has been known that the small electric is already on the workers’ agenda, taking its first steps in development.
There are still a few years left for us to attend the official launch of the Skoda Elroq. The arrival date will not be before 2025, and although many things can happen until then, the plans are already underway.. The first technical data we could know a few weeks ago. The Elroq, like its brothers from CUPRA and Volkswagen, will be supported by the new access version to the MEB platform, called MEB Entry.
With a wheelbase shortened by 10 centimeters with respect to the version that we currently see in the Volkswagen ID.3. Although the cut is significant, you will be able to count on a 58 kWh net capacity battery that will send all the energy to a single rear thruster that will be able to shoot a expected autonomy of 400 kilometers. A significantly high figure considering the urban characteristics. In terms of technology, a very complete offer is expected, although the presentation will be simple.
The sale price has been one of the main axes on which the Skoda Elroq project is turning. The Czechs want to offer an electric below the barrier of 20,000 euros. A cost that will mean giving more people access to electric mobility. At the moment this is all we know about the Elroq project and its two sister models that will arrive at the same time, although the first to appear will be the Volkswagen. CUPRA and Skoda will have to fight to finish second.
