  1. Translation:

    > The company has now sold 70,000 units of the brand’s first fully electric car, the Skoda Enyaq – 22,200 units in the first half of 2022 alone. And there would certainly be tens of thousands more if production had not been repeatedly slowed down by a shortage of wiring harnesses and computer chips.

    > However, the best-selling model is still the Skoda Octavia by a clear margin. Between January and June of this year alone, 61,000 units of the popular mid-size sedan were sold. You don’t just take a successful model like this out of production because the era of combustion engines is coming to an end. In 2024, the model will therefore be given another major facelift – in terms of looks, content and technology.

    > And an electric variant is also in the pipeline, EDISON has learned. With plenty of space, typical Simply Clever features, and a range suitable for travel Only the timing is not yet quite clear. As things stand, the all-new, decidedly dashingly styled electric vehicle is likely to be launched here in the second half of 2026 – as a sedan and, of course, also as a practical Combi. It is based on the VW Group’s new SSP platform, and many of the key data have already been roughly outlined. Thanks to a refined cW value and high efficiency, the electric range should reach 600 kilometers with an 80 kWh battery, according to the company. Power will initially be a good 150 kW, the top will be 160 km/h, and consumption will be below 15 kWh per 100 kilometers. And the target is a charging power of up to 200 kW.

    > On the outside, the brand’s new design language is reflected, which Zellmer and Head of Design Oliver Stefani have now presented using the “Vision 7S” concept car (which is close to series production) as an example. As there, the cockpit of the Octavia iV will feature intuitive digital technologies and high-quality vegan materials – as well as plenty of space for passengers and luggage thanks to the longer wheelbase. The load volume of the Skoda Combis is said to grow to a lush 1800 liters with the rear frames folded down.

    > Prices could range between just under 35,000 and 45,000 euros – even for the Czechs, all raw materials and materials have recently become massively more expensive. Nevertheless, Skoda should still be accessible to a broad range of buyers in the future, as Zellmer assures Edison. Which does not mean that there is still room for improvement: Of course, this Octavia also comes as a racy RS with sport suspension, black deco details, at least 220 kW and a top speed of 180 km/h.

    > Now Skoda just has to see about getting enough batteries for its electric cars. Zellmer has high hopes that the next Giga battery factory will be built near Mlada Boleslav. However, he says nothing has been decided yet.

  2. Damn, 2026 eh? I mean, it’s a great step, especially for people like me who prefer estates/SW/variants to crossovers or SUVs or what have you. But in the coming 3 years, it’s quite possible that chinese EVs – and quality ones at that – may eat Skoda’s lunch.

  3. I ordered an Enyaq but had to cancel when it became apparent it was going to be more than a year’s wait.

    If the supply chain thing is all fixed by the time this is released, I’ll be all over it like a rash!
