a strategy of electrification of the Volkswagen Group the wind in its sails at full sail. The German consortium is still working for the commercial launch of future electric cars and self-employed it will be sooner rather than later. At this point we already know that Volkswagen and Seat have electric models in their ranges, but the lack (apart from Audi) have it is the Czech Skoda.

The signature Czech is the one with the catalogue of products shortest of the consortium (with the exception of Lamborghini, Porsche and Rolls Royce), but that is changing with the launch of the Kodiaq. However, Bernhard Maier, CEO of Skoda has made various statements heat of the Geneva motor show that we have turned on the light bulb.

According to Maier the Czech manufacturer will be able to present that will be its first electric model in the next Salon of the Car of Shanghai. According to the CEO of Skoda “in Shanghai are going to show a surprise. They give a vision of what will be the electric mobility in Skoda”. What has not been explained is the type of car that will or the segment they will belong to the first car powered by batteries of the firm.

Maier has not specified if it will be an electric model on the basis of one already existing or one of the new conception to the one hundred by one hundred. However, Maier if you’ve made it clear that “we’re going to go first with a plug-in hybrid grand in 2019 and the first all-electric vehicle built especially to come after, is currently planned for reach the market in the year 2020.

If we take into account the technology in electric vehicles that has the Volkswagen Group, Skoda could bring to the market a number of alternatives. The first and easiest would be a micro-urban based on the e-Up! and e-Mii that already made their marks sisters. The second could come from the hand of all the way, as the new platform MEB would be perfect for it, and in the consortium already have with some other example. Finally, we could be talking about a saloon of traditional cut. In this field, the firm is a specialist and could be a model that fits perfectly in your range.

Will have to wait for the appointment asian to see this concept and whether or not we are right.
