The Skoda Elroq is set to arrive in 2024 as the Czech brand’s next all-electric SUV. The Elroq will sit below the Enyaq iV as a smaller SUV in the lineup, but will be built on the same platform used by its larger sibling. The Elroq will be the first car from Skoda’s range to sport the brand’s latest design language, which will also spawn an even smaller electric SUV.

Using many of the same components as the Enyaq iV up front, the Elroq will have a shorter overall length of 4.5 metres, putting it between the Enyaq iV and the combustion-engined Karoq in terms of overall size.

Thanks to its electric platform, the Elroq should still have generous interior room comparable to that of the Enyaq iV, with lots of rear seat space for passengers, a completely flat floor and a sizable boot.

Skoda’s latest ‘Modern Solid’ design language will make its production-car debut on the Elroq – so far it’s been featured on the Skoda Vision 7S concept, but will be adopted across Skoda’s entire EV lineup, including as part of an upcoming mid-life refresh of the Enyaq iV and Enyaq iV Coupe in 2025.

Key design cues that feature as part of this design language include a cleaner, more sophisticated look that drops the previous Skoda styling inspired by Czech crystal glass art. The new look gets new upright, compact headlights and shuns a traditional grille in favour of a gloss black trim element which more boldly flaunts the car’s electric underpinnings.

Interior features we’re expecting to see include a new dashboard design with a portrait-oriented screen, as previewed in the 7S Concept. Skoda will still make use of physical buttons and switchgear inside upcoming models, in contrast to other VW Group brands’ recent habits of removing them in favour of touch controls – a source of frustration amongst some drivers. Skoda interiors will get rotary dials for the air conditioning controls, plus shortcut buttons and a physical volume switch for media.

The Skoda Elroq is due to be revealed in 2024 as the next step in Skoda’s EV expansion. Other key models that are inbound include a large SUV derived from the aforementioned 7S concept, as well as a smaller SUV sitting beneath the Elroq and an all-electric estate car.
