Skoda teases new Elroq SUV ahead of autumn launch

Skoda has given us the first glimpse of the production version of its forthcoming Elroq electric crossover.

The newcomer will sit below the Enyaq when it officially arrives this autumn, and will be the first in a slew of new electric Skodas arriving over the next two years.

The Elroq will be the first Skoda under the firm's new 'Modern Solid' design philosophy, which was previewed by the 2022 Vision 7S concept and the smaller Epiq concept from earlier this year. It's a new design direction for the Czech brand and consists of a 'Tech-Deck' face, a more robust look for the body, and a practical, robust and tech-filled interior. 

The teaser image only shows the 'Tech-Deck' face and what appears to be clam-shell bonnet. Distinctive LED daytime running lights that stretch across the car's nose are on show, as is Skoda lettering. Although not shown in the image, Skoda says the Elroq will have "large wheels that enhance its robust look", and "cutting edge" LED Matrix headlights. 

The new crossover will use the Volkswagen Group's EV-dedicated MEB platform, as already used by the larger Enyaq and a number of Volkswagen ID. models. It's expected to also use the same battery technology as those cars, with 58kWh and 77kWh packs, and the choice of rear- and all-wheel drive power.

Skoda is promising to launch six new EVs by 2026
