Skoda Enyaq: Brand's new EV crossover named

Skoda is preparing to reveal its first electric SUV this year, based on the same ‘MEB’ battery-friendly architecture as the ID.3 and ID.4 from parent company Volkswagen.

2020 Skoda Kamiq GT: China-only coupe SUV revealed

Chinese buyers increasingly want crossovers and they increasingly want Skodas. The Czech brand, therefore, is giving them more of both. Like the Kodiaq GT revealed last year, the Kamiq GT is a coupe crossover version of an existing Skoda and won't be sold here.
