Skoda is preparing to upgrade its flagship – Superb, which is likely to happen next year. It is expected that the model will finally appear in a hybrid version and will be available for both sedan and wagon, AutoMail reports.
The Superb facelift will get minimal changes in appearance, and will affect bumper and optics. It is anticipated that a large number of chrome elements will appear on the body, and this is no accident – the Czechs are trying to impose Superb on the Chinese market, where consumers love similar things.
So far there is no information on what kind of hybrid unit has stopped in Skoda flagship, but it is known that it will be able to charge from the power grid. Only for electricity this version will go up to 80 km, and the car will be the first step towards electrification of the range on the Czech side.
So in 2020, Skoda will be completely ready to launch a fully electric car that will be based on the Vision E concept. It will rely on two 225 kW (306 hp) electric motors. This will be the first of a total of 5 electricity models that the Czechs will offer on the market by 2025.
