With manufacturers showing more and more electric cars, Skoda is expected to make the first major step in 2019 to release the first pure electric car.
Skoda technical development departments are already experimenting in real-world infrastructure where electric vehicles will be charged, including experimental stations installed at the Mlada Boleslav plant in the Czech Republic.
In the next few months and for the next few years, the Czech company plans to expand the charging infrastructure for electric cars in areas beyond the vehicle manufacturing facilities. For Skoda specific projects, approximately 3.4 million EUR was invested in 2018, with 1.65 million EUR relating to the modernization of the electricity grid. The remaining amount was spent on charging stations.
