Skoda Electric Cars
We have a range of electric cars from Skoda available on our all inclusive monthly subscription model. Read on for more info on our range and Skoda’s history in the EV space.
Why you should drive a Skoda electric car
Skoda cars are well known for their reliability and affordable prices, a firm family favourite. And the same goes for their electric cars. Whilst they currently present a modest range, they do not miss out on any high quality features or technology.
If you’re looking for an all-round great EV, a Skoda could just be the perfect car for you…
Our range of Skoda electric cars
How long has Skoda been producing EVs?
Czech car manufacturer Skoda has a long history, founded in 1859 under the name Laurin & Klement, making it one of the oldest car manufacturers in the world. In 1991, Skoda became a subsidiary of Volkswagen which lead to greater investment and greater quality cars.
They have always experimented with electricity and alternative fuels but in 2020, Skoda launched their first modern electric cars, the CITIGOe iV and ENYAQ iV. Later that year, Skoda confirmed that the CITIGOe iV was to be discontinued and that the company would not be producing any smaller electrified models for the foreseeable future.
By 2025, Skoda promises to offer a greater range of electrified vehicles, including 10 more models, 6 of which will be all-electric.
Why driving an EV is great
There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.
While Skoda produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:
- There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
- Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
- EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
- Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
