Skoda has plans of launching the hybrid Superb by 2019. Followed by all electric cars based on the Volkswagen’s plan to introduce 30 or more electric vehicles by 2025.

The Superb hybrid will be based on the same underpinnings as the Volkswagen Passat GTE. The Passat Hybrid is already on sale in the UK. The consequent Skoda models, including the new seven-seater SUV, will also make use of the same platform thereafter. The Czech manufacturer wants to initiate the hybridisation with the Superb since the car has a great demand in China.

Considering the fact that Superb’s competitions – Toyota Camry and Honda Accord are already available with the hybrid technology, Skoda is considered rather late to enter the competition. However, Skoda contemplates 2019 is a perfect time for them to bring in the hybrid technology as they consider that it will be a time when the higher demands for hybrid cars will actually help bring down the cost, as Skoda wants to provide the technology at an affordable price to the customers.

The news of the Superb Hybrid came after the brand’s chief executive, Bernhard Maier, speaking at the launch of the Skoda Kodiaq, said “As a brand, Skoda does not need to be first to market - it needs to offer technology people want at a price they can afford. That is why 2019 is our target.”

The electric cars from Skoda is expected to be based on the Volkswagen's Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) platform, but Maier says that the car’s design will be distinctive to Skoda. Maier further added, "I cannot tell you much, but I promise this all-new car will be awesome. The advantages of lots of space in a smaller footprint play to Skoda's strengths for offering good value."
