PRAGUE (Reuters) – Czech carmaker Skoda Auto, part of German group Volkswagen (ETR:), wants to expand its electric vehicle range to six models by 2026, the company said, further boosting its ambitions in the shift to e-mobility.
The company had previously aimed to launch three new electric models but said in a Tuesday evening release it will launch four new e-vehicles and two updated models in the coming years.
The launches fall under Skoda’s 5.6 billion euro ($6.16 billion) investment plan into e-mobility by 2027.
