According to unofficial data, the popular model of the new generation will be presented only in hatchback and station wagon bodies. The presentation will take place this year – the exact date is still known.

Bernhard Meier, chief executive officer of the Czech brand, said that 30 new models will be presented until 2022. At least 10 of them will be electrified – some will be equipped with a hybrid installation, while others will be completely electric.

In addition, Mr. Mayer announced that Skoda plans to introduce the fourth generation Octavia model later in 2019 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the model. Recall that the original Octavia was introduced back in 1959.

It is known that the model will receive the traditional headlights (not twin). About the new generation of the car so far little data, although Skoda previously mentioned the new Octavia as a “modern” car and that it will continue to combine the appearance of a sedan with the practicality of a hatchback.

While the current director of Skoda did not go into details about the Octavia IV, there are some unconfirmed data, according to which, the car will be presented in the hatchback and wagon version. The latter will appear in 2020. It turns out that the sales volume of the station wagon showed the best results of the company lately.

    The automaker from Mladá Boleslawa talked about the possible electrification of a high-performance version of the model, which according to tradition will receive the RS prefix. “The hybrid version will be able to show improved fuel economy and improved dynamic performance,” said Bernhard Meier.

 In addition to the Skoda Octavia IV, this year the Volkswagen AG concern will present new versions of the VW Golf, SEAT Leon and Audi A3, which are also based on the modular platform MQB.
