The company wants to achieve a 70 percent share of electric cars in total sales in Europe by 2030. About 220,000 new passenger cars will be sold in the Czech Republic this year, of which electric cars will make up roughly three percent.
In addition to the Enyaq model range, Škoda plans to launch at least three other fully electric models by 2026. Among them should be the compact SUV Elroq and the urban small electric car of the A0 segment.
“From the start of production until the end of October this year, Škoda Auto delivered 160,000 Enyaq electric cars to customers and received a total of 215,000 orders,” Jan Hrbek from the company’s press department told journalists during the presentation of the upgraded Enyaq car.
In nine months this year, the automaker sold approximately 55,000 Enyaq electric cars, which represents a year-on-year increase of more than 47 percent. “We’ve listened carefully to our customers, so for the new model year we’re introducing a new Enyaq L&K trim line, even more powerful and efficient powertrains and a new software version with an infotainment interface that’s more feature-rich and more intuitive than ever before,” said a member at today’s presentation Škoda Auto’s board of directors for sales and marketing, Martin Jahn.
The 2024 model year brings extensive technical improvements to the Enyaq family and the expansion of the portfolio with the new Laurin & Klement equipment line. Enyaq will receive new engines from European production with increased power by 15 to 60 kW to 210 to 250 kW. Improvements in battery management and a new battery pre-heat function reduce charging time by up to 22 percent. It takes 28 minutes to charge from ten to 80 percent, and the maximum range has been extended by 24 km to 570 km.
