Skoda is doing extremely well in the market. Last year, the Czech car manufacturer sold more than 1.2 million cars, a 6.6 percent increase over 2016.
However, the Mlada Boleslav car manufacturer has some big surprises in store for the fans. Skoda will introduce 19 new vehicles over the next two years.
The production version of the Vision X SUV will be revealed in 2019. Earlier this month, at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the concept car was unveiled. This concept employs both an electric and a petrol/CNG powertrain.
In addition, the first plug-in hybrid and electric cars will be produced in Mlada Boleslav in 2019. The e-Citigo, an electric version of the city car, as well as the Superb PHEV (plug-in hybrid) model will be on display.
Skoda will launch the first electric vehicle based on the MEB VW Group platform in 2020. It will be based on the Vision E concept and, according to preliminary information, will have a range of more than 400 kilometers. Skoda’s portfolio will include a total of ten electrified models by the middle of the next decade.
Skoda will also increase its global presence from 102 to 120 countries, beginning with Singapore later this year and South Africa in 2019.
