ŠKODA E-MOBILITY

We are all powered by energy, but energy on its own is not enough. If not used to propel the right experiences in life, it’s potential will be wasted. That is why is essential to focus on what is important in our everyday: the emotionally relevant, the engaging, the inventive. Because when you’re driven by this, there’s nowhere to go but forward. So welcome to an eMobility ecosystem that allows you to focus on what matters -to fill up your life with positive energy and meaningful experiences.

Charging

Charging your electric vehicle should be as natural as charging your smartphone.

VISION

Dynamic VISION iV is ŠKODA’s next step towards becoming a provider of eMobility solutions.

MODELS

We’re meeting the eMobility revolution head-on, accelerating the transition to a future built on sustainable energy. By the end of 2022, ŠKODA’s portfolio will include 10 electrified models in various segments - six of which will be all-electric, alongside four hybrids. Here’s a closer look at what’s coming around the corner.

BATTERY TECHNOLOGY

Our ŠKODA electric vehicles will all feature state-of-the-art Li-ion battery technology with the highest possible energy density, developed with safety as our highest priority. Our Battery Management System ensures optimal performance over thousands of charging cycles.

Will batteries take up a lot of space in ŠKODA EVs?

With both Plug-in Hybrid EVs (PHEV) and Battery EVs (BEV), the batteries are integrated so as to maximize storage space. Our PHEV batteries will occupy the space normally taken up by the fuel tank in a purely internal combustion engine (ICE) car, leaving just as much storage space as before. With BEVs, the news is even better. Our BEV models incorporate the battery as part of the chassis itself, allowing us to convert the front of the car into a secondary trunk in addition to the normal rear storage area.

Can EV batteries be recycled?

Battery recycling is crucial for our industry. While it’s possible to recycle Li-ion batteries, the costs are exceedingly high. As eMobility becomes more widespread, the production of Li-ion batteries will increase, driving demand for raw materials and resulting in more batteries at the end phase of their lifespans. These effects will spur the development of cheaper and more effective recycling methods.

What options exist for re-using batteries?

Even after a battery has reached the end of its in-car lifespan, recycling is not the only option. These batteries can be remade into energy storage devices, and in doing so, the overall lifespan of the battery will be prolonged by many years. In other words, we’ll give our batteries a second life.
