New Skoda Elroq electric SUV teased with brand’s fresh design language

The Skoda Elroq is an all-new electric SUV that will slot below the Enyaq from next year

Skoda Elroq EV teaser
  • Sits below Enyaq in Skoda’s lineup
  • First model to feature Skoda’s latest design language
  • Full reveal in autumn 2024

Here’s our first official look at the upcoming Skoda Elroq, a new electric SUV from the Czech carmaker that’s set to debut in autumn 2024. It’ll be the third electric car in Skoda’s lineup, joining the Enyaq SUV and Enyaq Coupe, and will utilise much of the same EV tech as those models. The Elroq will also serve as the first model to wear Skoda’s new design language, with the similarly-styled Skoda Epiq due next year.

What do I need to know about the Skoda Elroq?

The Skoda Elroq has been confirmed to utilise the Volkswagen Group’s MEB electric car platform – the same building blocks that underpin a whole range of models, from the Enyaq to the Volkswagen ID.3 and Audi Q4 e-tron.  With an overall length of 4,500mm, the Elroq will slot between the Enyaq and the combustion-engined Karoq in terms of overall size.

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

The official teaser picture reveals 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 and Epiq concept cars, but it will be adopted across Skoda’s entire EV lineup in time. The Enyaq and Enyaq Coupe are expected to receive a similar design treatment next year as part of a mid-life refresh.

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 front end gets a pair of slim horizontal daytime-running lights and shuns a traditional grille in favour of a gloss black trim element which more boldly flaunts the car’s electric underpinnings. The traditional Skoda emblem has also been dropped in favour of bold lettering spelling out the brand’s name across the bonnet.

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 among some drivers. The Elroq’s interior should get rotary dials for the air conditioning controls, as seen in the new Skoda Superb, plus shortcut buttons and a physical volume switch for media.

How much will the Skoda Elroq cost and when can I buy one?

The Skoda Elroq is slated to be revealed in autumn 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 the Epiq and an all-electric estate car. It’s expected to be offered at a lower price point than the Enyaq, which currently starts from around £39,000.
