We are all powered by energy, but energy on its own is not enough. If not cultivated properly, it will never reach its potential. This is what we call Crafting Energy, and it’s the story of eMobility at ŠKODA. When you’re driven by inventiveness, there’s nowhere to go but forward. We’re creating an accessible eMobility ecosystem that allows you to focus on what matters - to Recharge Life with positive energy and meaningful experiences.
Charging your electric vehicle should be as natural as charging your smartphone.
When you choose eMobility with ŠKODA, you’re getting more than just a car. We’ve designed a comprehensive ecosystem of charging services that’s precision-engineered to integrate perfectly with your lifestyle.
With ŠKODA eMobility, you’ll enjoy access to a wide range of charging options to cover nearly all possibilities: at home, on the go, or at super-fast public charging stations. Charge overnight with steady alternating current, or choose powerful direct current for speedier charging times.
The ŠKODA wallbox will be your partner for at-home charging. It provides a smooth flow of electricity from your home’s electricity grid to your vehicle, creating a completely safe charging process for both you and your car. Our convenient and comprehensive eCheck program will prepare your home for effortless charging.
The ŠKODA Mobility Service Provider (MSP) is your key to an integrated network of public charging services in the EU. At the core of this system is the Charging Card. Also available as a mobile phone app, it’ll allow you to access any charging station operated by a member of the MSP program.
The future of eMobility is bright. In the EU, auto manufacturers are working hand-in-hand with governments on the IONITY project, which aims to construct a pan-European network of ultra-fast EV charging stations. With many stations already operational, the initiative seeks to build 400 stations across Europe by 2020.
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.
The all-electric adaptation of the beloved CITIGO will represent ŠKODA’s grand entrance into the world of eMobility. With an effective range of up to 300km, the CITIGO will be the vehicle of choice for the eco-conscious urban professional. Practicality, efficiency and a generous interior, all in one compact and stylish package.
The SUPERB is the flagship model of the ŠKODA range, and as such, it’s natural that it was selected to become our first plug-in hybrid soon. Enjoy the surprising value of the SUPERB’s signature space and style with a much smaller footprint.
The VISION E concept car, in production from 2020, will be ŠKODA’s first all-electric SUV. Built on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, the VISION E is teeming with inventive features both inside and out.
With the VISION E, ŠKODA offers a glimpse into the company’s future of individual mobility.
Driven by positive energy, the VISION E delivers inventive and clever features including next-level interconnectivity, wireless charging and more. Go anywhere you need to be with all the comforts and convenience of home.Discover the VISION E
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.
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.
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.
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.
