Skoda has formulated ambitious plans to become one of the five best-selling automakers in Europe by 2030, expand its electric vehicle product line, and reduce its fleet emissions by more than 50%.
Skoda’s goal is to reach 50-70% of the pure electric vehicle market in Europe by 2030
Its Czech plant will be used to produce electric vehicles and parts
It will also offer the upcoming Kushaq SUV in other emerging markets
Skoda’s “next level” strategy
Under the banner of Next Level, the Czech brand aims to provide “modern barrier-free travel, satisfying everything you need and surprises you love” through three overall goals: expansion, exploration and participation.
In order to achieve the goal of achieving 50% to 70% of the pure electric vehicle market share in Europe by 2030, Skoda will launch three new all-electric models.
It has not elaborated on these new cars, but it has previously hinted that it will launch a compact crossover after the Enyaq Coupé in 2022, and may use the Volkswagen Group’s upcoming MEB-Lite platform for small urban electric vehicles.
Skoda is working to transform its Czech home market into a dedicated “electric vehicle center”, and its Mladá Boleslav, Kvasiny and Vrchlabí plants will be reused as production facilities for electric vehicles and related components. This process will begin in 2022, when Skoda will produce electric car batteries in-house to supply Enyaq iV. The company already produces drive batteries for its Superb and Octavia plug-in hybrid vehicles locally, and produces units for a number of models of other brands in the Volkswagen Group.
In addition to the European market goals, the brand also hopes to become the best-selling European manufacturer in India, Russia and North Africa by 2030-with the potential to reach 1.5 million units per year. As part of this plan, Skoda will launch its new mid-size SUV Kushaq manufactured in India in other emerging markets.
Overall, all aspects of the Next Level strategy will help Skoda achieve its goal of reducing fleet emissions by more than 50% by 2030 from 2020 levels. Since then, all Skoda cars produced in the Czech Republic and India will be net carbon neutral-the company’s Vrchlabí plant has achieved this goal.
