Mladá Boleslav, 25 April 2023 – Škoda vehicles powered by modern and very efficient internal combustion engines (ICE) will continue to play a key role during the transition as the brand shifts its focus towards electric mobility. Škoda Auto is using its expertise to continuously optimise these engines and improve efficiency. The current model portfolio will benefit from comprehensive updates. A new generation of the Superb flagship and the Kodiaq SUV will be launched this autumn. The brand’s iconic Octavia as well as the Kamiq and Scala are also due to be refreshed in the near future.
Internal combustion engines during the era of transition
Internal combustion engines will remain an important mainstay for Škoda during the transition towards e-mobility. Škoda’s successful ICE models will play a key role in assuring individual mobility across all markets as the transition to e-mobility progresses at different speeds. With their extensive know-how, Škoda engineers are making today’s internal combustion engines even more efficient. Škoda Auto is also taking over responsibility for the development of the complete EA211 engine range within the Volkswagen Group.
Two highlights of the year 2023: the new generations of the Superb and Kodiaq
Before the end of the year, Škoda will present new generations of two successful and important model series. The fourth generation of the Superb, Škoda’s flagship model, and the second generation of the Kodiaq, the brand’s top SUV, will have their world premieres this autumn. In addition to variants featuring the car maker’s most advanced petrol and diesel engines, both models will also be available in plug-in hybrid format.
Updates for the Octavia, Scala and Kamiq
In addition to the new generations of the Superb and Kodiaq, Škoda Auto will soon be refreshing three other models in its portfolio: the iconic Octavia and the compact Kamiq and Scala. The last two models in particular serve to underline Škoda Auto’s focus on affordable individual mobility for a wide range of customers.
