Skoda is adding a plug-in hybrid variant to its Kodiaq midsize SUV for the first time.
The new Kodiaq SUV will go on sale in the autumn with plug-in and mild-hybrid variants, Skoda said in a statement.
The brand’s latest-generation Superb midsize car will launch at the same time.
Currently only the Superb and the Octavia compact car are available with plug-in hybrid and mild-hybrid technology.
The new models will continue to be available with diesel engines, Skoda said. Skoda is one of few volume automakers continuing to offer midsize SUV models with combustion engines.
The Kodiaq and Superb continue to be “cornerstones” of the Skoda range, CEO Klaus Zellmer said in the statement.
