Our entry into the eMobility era is a key pillar of our “GreenFuture” sustainability strategy. Under that strategy, we have set specific environmental targets for our products and vehicle production. One example is the 30% reduction in our fleet’s CO2 emissions between 2015 and 2025. The transformation from combustion engines to electric cars is an essential lever for this.
Over the next five years, we will be investing around two billion euros in alternative drive systems and new mobility services such as car‑sharing platforms. By the end of 2022, we will have introduced more than ten electrified models, thus establishing the ŠKODA iV family. We are also comprehensively preparing our staff for the demands of eMobility, with more than 11,000 employees already trained in electric car production.
ŠKODA iV models make eMobility Simply Clever – offering quick charging, long ranges, affordable prices and nimble dynamics. The ŠKODA iV range perfectly exemplifies how we will move you into the future: with intelligence, efficiency and fun.

The ŠKODA iV Charger wallbox is designed to charge electrified ŠKODA models at home or at work. This wall-mounted charging point is currently offered in three variants, all of which draw on AC to charge the car with power of up to 11 kW. The higher-end variants come with an internet connection so that they can be controlled, for example, via a mobile app. The top version offers an electricity meter so that multiple drivers can be billed quickly and easily. It goes without saying that the possibility of installation in your home is checked, and this is followed by installation itself and the provision of further services.
The goal of the Online Pre-Check is to get an estimate indication whether a wallbox installation is possible at your home. You can do the Online Pre-Check from any device at any time and no special knowledge is required.
Home Check is a detailed check of the electrical installation on site. A certified electrician from our local partner verifies the electrical infrastructure and desired location of the wallbox to ensure compatibility with the installation package. The Home Check should typically not take longer than 2 hours. Of course, you can accept or reject the offer for additional services.
The goal of the installation procedure is to perform all relevant activities to provide you a fully functioning wallbox. All installation activities are performed by a licensed electrician from our local installation partner. A fixed price of the standard installation package can be different on each market.
For general questions you can consult the FAQs. If you will have problems or question that are not covered there, call the ŠKODA customer hotline.

All electrified iV models 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.
Battery electric vehicles rely solely on electric motors for propulsion. They derive their electricity primarily from charging points and store it in battery packs. The key benefits of electric vehicles are that they emit no emissions, they run silently, offer nimble dynamics, and servicing them is not so complex.
What makes plug-in hybrid vehicles different from BEVs is that they combine a classic internal combustion engine with an electric motor which can be recharged from an electrical outlet. Even the PHEV can be driven in pure electric mode, but the range is limited to 50 to 60 kilometres. The result is low fuel consumption and a quiet electric drive, especially around the city.
The eMobility lifestyle is teeming with advantages, and as the electric revolution grows, it’s only going to get better.
There’s no disputing the environmental benefits of eMobility: lowering our reliance on fossil fuels while producing less air pollution as we travel. People in cities with higher concentrations of electric cars also enjoy a much lower degree of noise pollution.
eMobility isn’t only about saving the environment—it also comes with a healthy amount of savings for the wallet. With lower fuel and maintenance costs than cars with combustion engines, and with many governments offering tax incentives for ownership in some markets, electric vehicles present a far more attractive value for owners.
As air pollution and climate change become increasingly urgent issues, cities have been establishing low-emissions zones (LEZs) off-limits to many conventional vehicles. In the coming years, these LEZs will only become more prevalent.

With eMobility on the rise, the governments of many countries are looking for ways in which they can support this trend. They are setting rules that will make purchasing electric cars cheaper or favour their operation over conventional vehicles.
eMobility is not just about electric cars. The building of related infrastructure is crucial for its development. Electric car drivers will put more effort into planning longer trips and this will gradually change their driving habits.
