Skoda Octavia Is Coming To Market

Electric Skoda Octavia

An electric Skoda Octavia is likely to go on sale later this decade as the Czech firm rapidly bolsters its EV line-up. Before a zero-emissions version of the brand's biggest seller is launched, Skoda will refresh its current ICE and plug-in hybrid Octavia variants, due to hit showrooms in 2024. 

As soon as the EV version of Octavia arrives, it will join a seven-seat electric SUV (previewed by the newly revealed Vision 7S concept), an urban EV, a crossover – all due by 2026 – and a mini-SUV Skoda Fabia replacement in Skoda's new electric-focused line-up.

Skoda CEO Klaus Zellmer said it is currently investigating an electric Octavia ahead of Europe's potential ICE car sales ban in 2035. The carmaker is targeting 70% of its profits to be from EV sales by 2030.

The Octavia is a fantastic car that we of course will have to keep in the family as long as we can as we have such a huge customer base.

Zellmer said

The electric Octavia is expected to get a more rugged look than the current model, in keeping with Skoda's recently announced 'Modern Solid' design language reboot, which places a focus on SUV-type styling.


The new Octavia will use a more advanced version of Skoda's new 89 kWh battery, which is due in 2024/25 with a WLTP range of more than 370 miles and a charging rate of up to 200kW – far quicker than any mainstream Volkswagen Group EV on sale. This battery is expected to power two front motors on the standard car and four motors (one fitted to each wheel) on any sportier vRS variants.

The Octavia is rock solid. It has got its customer base and we are market leaders for the [estate] segment. Never change a winning team.

Zellmer told

Zellmer also hinted that as part of the brand's push for more SUV-type cars, the Octavia could get a variant with higher ground clearance – designed for light off-road use.
