New 2025 Skoda Elroq: price, specs and release date

Written By Phill Tromans

2025 Skoda Elroq

Under the funky body wrap you see here is the new Skoda Elroq, a small electric SUV that we should see go on sale later this year.

Smaller than the Enyaq, the Elroq occupies a space in the Skoda range that, in petrol form, is filled by the Karoq. It’ll be joined by an even smaller SUV called the Epiq further down the line. The Elroq will vie for customers’ attention against the likes of the Ford Explorer, Renault Scenic and Kia EV3.

So far only the disguised prototype pictures you see here have been released, along with limited information. But expect more info to follow soon ahead of a full reveal before the end of the year.

New 2025 Skoda Elroq: price and release date

No official UK release date has been given for the new Skoda Elroq, but we’d expect to see it properly and for order books to open before the end of the year. Prices have also not been confirmed, but we’d estimate prices to start at between £35,000 and £40,000.

New 2025 Skoda Elroq: interior and exterior

With both the interior and exterior details still under wraps we can’t yet go into detail about the looks of the Elroq.

What we do know is that it’ll have a “striking, rugged” body, according to Skoda, and a new design language that we’ve seen on early pictures of the forthcoming Epiq. Instead of a traditional grille there’ll be a gloss black element concealing forward-facing sensors, with Skoda lettering on the bonnet in place of a logo. LED headlights unlike any on current production Skodas will be installed on the Elroq, split into sections with slim upper light strips for the indicators and daytime running lights and LED  modules for the main units. Top-spec models will get LED matrix lights with 36 individual light units.

Inside, Skoda promises a spacious and simple interior with clean lines. A digital driver display, as seen in the Enyaq, will be ported over and complemented by a 13-inch infotainment screen, with an optional head-up display. The materials have a sustainable focus, with recycled fabric aplenty.

The boot should be spacious at 470 litres, expandable to 1580 litres by folding down the rear seats. Skoda has a history of producing exceedingly practical cars, and the Elroq’s 48 litres of interior space should continue that reputation.

New 2025 Skoda Elroq: motors and batteries

There will be four different powertrains available on the new Skoda Elroq, although it’s not yet clear if all of them will come to the UK.

The entry-level model is called the Elroq 50 and uses a 170PS electric motor driving the rear wheels with a 55kWh battery. Next up is the Elroq 60, with a 204PS motor and a 63kWh battery, while the Elroq 85 has a 285PS motor with an 82kWh battery.

Also available will be the Elroq 85x, which uses the same battery but with two motors driving all four wheels for a total output of 300PS.

Skoda says all versions of the Elroq will support DC fast charging, although the maximum rate differs – the 85 and 85x models can charge at up to 175kW, and while the speeds of the 50 and 60 haven’t been confirmed, we can safely assume they’ll be slower. We do know, however, that all versions can charge from 10% to 80% in less than 28 minutes.
