Skoda faced major challenges this year. The Volkswagen subsidiary nevertheless managed to achieve a record market share and move up to sixth place in ranking in Germany. The Czech manufacturer also wants to celebrate successes in 2021, and the new electric cars are expected to contribute even more than this year.
This year, Skoda Germany expects around 180,000 new registrations. This includes Skoda's first electric car Citigo-e iV. Skoda started production of the Enyaq iV at the end of November. The electric SUV is the brand's first production model to be based on the new MEB electric car platform from Volkswagen. The plug-in hybrid versions of the Skoda Octavia and the Skoda Superb are already available, both as sedans and station wagons.
The demand for Skoda's electric models is already high: the Citigo-e iV and the Superb iV have had over 10,000 registrations so far. The proportion between the two models is almost 50:50. The Octavia iV has only recently been available to order and is therefore not yet included in the registration numbers mentioned.
