Skoda to develop an all-electric sports car

Skoda to develop an all-electric sports car

Skoda has told reporters that they are looking to develop an all-electric sports car, and this will be one of the five EVs that the brand will debut by the year 2025.

Skoda disclosed that the MEB electrical architecture will make up the mechanical bits of this sports car. And it is believed that this architecture gives the company great flexibility in terms of power and dynamics. Last month, Skoda showcased its Vision E concept car that’s powered by two electric motors (one on each axle), a total output of 302bhp and four-wheel drive capability. This concept is claimed to do the 0-100kmph sprint in six seconds before hitting a top speed of 180kmph, and has a range of 499km.

Furthermore, the flexibility of the MEB platform will also allow Skoda to equip its electric supercar with an only rear-wheel drive too. This is possible as the platform can permit the use of just one motor at the rear axle. Though it will reduce the range and power output, the increased space that the lack of mechanical parts has liberated gives Skoda more room to look at other performance rejuvenation options. Skoda’s head for technical development, Christian Strube, has confirmed that the brand is targeting volumes with the first wave of their EVs. And that the electric sports car will be responsible for injecting more excitement into their future portfolio.
