Skoda Fabia to get fully electric in coming years: Report

The successor to the Skoda Fabia, an all-electric vehicle, is currently being developed, according to Skoda CEO Klaus Zellmer, though it could be unveiled later this decade. Skoda has unveiled the Vision 7S electric concept car, which showcases the new design aesthetic for the Czech automaker. According to Zellmer, the next Skoda Fabia EV will also adhere to the brand's new design guidelines.

With the new Skoda Fabia's design in mind, the next electric vehicle might resemble a small crossover rather than the existing model, which is a hatchback. Zellmer also reportedly stated, “The biggest challenge at the moment is the cost of battery-electric vehicles, especially when producing a car [the size of] the Fabia. We will have to stay a little patient."

The upcoming all-electric Skoda Fabia is suspected to be built on Volkswagen's MEB architecture's entry-level model. The vehicle could be among the final VAG electric vehicles on the aforementioned platform before the automaker switches to the new SSP platform. According to reports, there's a chance Skoda will give its next all-electric car a new name. By the end of the decade, Skoda hopes to have a new lineup of electric vehicles.

The Skoda Head also stated that the company will introduce a production edition of the recently disclosed Vision 7S electric vehicle concept together with an urban electric vehicle and a crossover, followed by the introduction of two additional all-electric models, one of which will be the Skoda e-Tron successor model of Skoda Fabia. The recently unveiled Skoda Vision 7S concept features matte exterior paint and asserts that it would have a range of more than 600 kilometres. It includes an 89 kWh battery pack, and the majority of the interior components are eco-friendly.
