2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased Teased confirms that the fully electric Enyaq mid-sized SUV will launch within the first quarter of 2023, between June and November.
The brand new Enyaq model, which is built on the Volkswagen Group’s electronic MEB platform, is expected to be launched in Australia in the standard wagon-body version; however, it will also be available in a more sporty Enyaq Coupe form – and the popular 220KW Enyaq EV hasn’t had a confirmed Australian release at this time.
- The official teaser showcases the brand new 2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased
- It could be called Skoda Elroq
- It replaces the older Citigo iV EV
- It will be less expensive than Enyaq iV
- The production will begin in 2025.
2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased design
The official Skoda design (above) isn’t going to provide much information about the car’s new design; however, its boxy, upright design suggests that the new model is smaller than an ordinary hatchback-like car.
In this way, it’s clear that the new Elroq (if it’s what Skoda uses) will not be an exact substitute for the Citigo iV; however, it’ll have a bigger and more spacious interior than the tiniest Skoda SUV that you can purchase in the present that is the Kamiq. Take a look at Mat’s review of the car here.
The sketch’s bluff-front end and straight crease underneath the windows are similar to an earlier picture Skoda revealed of a future design concept vehicle (below.) At a minimum, the alloy wheels (or the visible part on them) seem to align.
While you cannot see anything through the coated CGI glass, The car in the photo appears to be sporting an identical silhouette to the teaser image released earlier. It is expected to appear distinct from any Skoda available today.
What’s it like inside the 2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased like on the inside?
The 2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased is always focused on space and functionality. The change hasn’t helped reduce this. It’s an excellent option to transport five people comfortably (and seven in the event of a need). It comes with a selection of thoughtfully designed features to ease the burden of family life.
In front, the driver and passengers are seated in comfortable seats that have a single piece of backrests. They’ll be cooled and heated for 2022 and feature an elegant combination of support and bolstering. The driver’s commanding position allows enough adjustment to accommodate tall and short drivers.
The driver is presented by a binnacle of digital instruments that has been upgraded with new graphics to 2022. As with other Volkswagen Group products, it allows you to cut down to show only the speed and revs or to overwhelm you with details about everything from navigation systems to assistance systems.
In the center in the center of the console is a 9.2-inch touchscreen. It’s the same size as before and appears a little small compared to the large screens available by rivals and has now got wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to 2022.
As you navigate the menus, it’s obvious that the smaller display doesn’t affect its usability. It’s user-friendly while on the go and quick to respond to inputs, though setting up the menus on your home screen requires a little time.
Storage space is abundant. There’s a storage space underneath the armrest’s central part and an open tray on top of it that could serve as cupholders or be flipped to store keys and coins. Below the center console, you’ll find a wireless phone charger and USB-C ports. The bins on the doors are large enough to hold 1.5-liter bottles.
Contrary to all of Volkswagen, Skoda has stuck with physical buttons and dials to control its climate. This may sound odd; however, it works. Everything is easily accessible. It’s also easy to adjust the temperature or speed of the fan in the field.
The door for the driver is also home to a garbage container. It is perfect for those who chew gum regularly, when we’re talking about “Simply Clever touch-ups, an umbrella that’s concealed in the driver’s door, and a ticket holder in the windshield, pieces that flip down on the headrests that can assist headrests for sleeping in rear and blankets that are attached to the headrests, keeping children warm.
The space in the second row is a standout. Headroom is fantastic regardless of the sunroof that was fitted to this test vehicle, and there’s plenty of room for six-footers to be seated behind sluggish drivers.
The armrest that folds down centrally with air vents, sunshades, and temperature control ensures the kids will be able to stay cool regardless of the weather as well as the USB ports means that your iPad will never fail to charge. I’ve spent 6 hours in the Kodiaq with 4 adults, and not one complained. That is a good indication of the comfort it offers.
What about that third row? It’s not as large. The Kodiaq is more than the size of a five-plus-two than the full-time seven-seater with seats suitable for small kids who are taking short trips.
Access is limited, and the rear seats are folded forwards; children can easily stutter through and take advantage of plenty of space for short journeys. The cupholder on the left and the storage pocket on the right is great features. However, you won’t find air vents or USB outlets behind there.
It’s easy to understand when you think about how tiny it is. Kodiaq is. The 4697mm is just 269mm smaller than the Toyota Kluger. However, it offers the same space for five passengers and more of a drive within the urban area.
Boot space is said to be 300 Liters when the third row is in the middle, 765L with it folded flat, and 2005L with the second and third rows laid flat.
The floor folds completely flat when the third row is folded. There’s even storage underneath to store your cargo cover. It’s a cleverly designed vehicle, no matter how you turn it.
2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased Batteries for the new model and selection
The cheapest electric vehicle Skoda currently offers includes the Enyaq SUV that has an estimated 265 miles of range and the entry-level version with a battery that’s 62 kWh.
The new model is likely expected to come with a smaller battery to aid in reducing weight and increasing the space inside the cabin. It will likely use the latest technology Volkswagen is working on called”Unified Cell,” which could reduce the cost of batteries by as much as 50% for mass-market vehicles.
The batteries will be available in road vehicles in 2023. They will be commonplace in vehicles manufactured for VW (and Skoda – both companies belong to this same company) in 2030.
It’s possible that this latest battery technology could give a Skoda Elroq a greater range than the current low-end VW ID.3. The car can go 217 miles on one charge.

What does the price of 2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased ?
2023 Skoda Elroq EV Teased will set you back $74,990 for the drive-away; however, the sunroof we tested raised the sticker to $76,890. No matter how you turn it around, you’ll be spending quite a bit of cash.
Undoubtedly, pure competitors for the Kodiaq aren’t easy to find. Even though the less robust Kodiaq Style and Sportline face each other with those of the Kia Sorento and the Hyundai Santa Fe, no rival offers the same performance with a seven-seat body.
Volkswagen does not have an engine with 180kW in the similar Tiguan Allspace in Australia, and the smaller Tiguan R is a five-seat-only option. The Tiguan Allspace 162TSI R-Line is the closest contender, with prices starting from $59,190, plus the on-road cost.
