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 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.
