Skoda Auto has released the first official silhouette images of the all-new Elroq. The fully electric compact SUV is Skoda’s first production model to adopt the Modern Solid design language. The world premiere of the Elroq later this year marks the beginning of Skoda’s new e-model campaign, which will see the launch of six battery-electric models in the coming years.

According to the Czech carmaker, “The minimalist exterior combines robustness, functionality and authenticity, while conveying a sense of safety and strength.”

Oliver Stefani, Head of Škoda Auto Design, explains: “At Skoda, design is an important part of the brand identity and one of the main factors of our success. The continuous development of key visual elements is both a demanding and exciting task. For this reason, my team and I are thrilled to present the preview of the first Skoda model to incorporate the new Modern Solid design language such as the Tech-Deck Face and a more robust overall look. Moreover, it is the first car in our portfolio to feature Škoda lettering on its sharply contoured bonnet. No doubt, our brand-new Elroq sets a new tone and is a real eye-catcher.”

New front with Skoda lettering and Tech-Deck Face
The front of the Elroq is characterised by its split headlight design. The slimmer upper section seamlessly extends into the wings. The Skoda lettering is now prominently displayed on the bonnet, reflecting the carmaker’s corporate identity. The innovative Tech-Deck Face is a modern, recognisable reinterpretation of the traditional Skoda grille, with a flatter and wider appearance. Additionally, the vehicle sports large wheels that enhance its robust look, and cutting-edge LED Matrix headlights complete the Skoda Elroq’s striking look.

The Elroq’s appearance was hinted at by one of the design sculptures last year.

Innovative design meets MEB engineering
The Elroq will be the third Skoda model based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform, joining the Enyaq and the Enyaq Coupé. At the same time, the electric counterpart to the Karoq will kick off the Czech car manufacturer’s new e-mobility campaign, with six battery-electric models in the coming years. The all-new compact SUV will feature a generously sized interior and exceptional practicality, in line with the brand’s commitment to comfort and functionality. The world premiere of the Škoda Elroq is slated to be held later this year.
