SKODA has released first images of its' all-new compact electric SUV, the Elroq, and, although the car is still heavily camouflaged, the shots provide a pretty clear idea of the final production model.

The Elroq will be the first of a string of six new BEV models from Skoda over the next few years and will be closely followed by the company's smallest electric SUV, the Epiq.

With a new design language - the company calls it ‘modern solid' - the Elroq will be the first Skoda not to feature the Czech brand's traditional logo.

Built on the Volkswagen Group's modular electric platform, it will come with four powertrain variants with varying battery capacities and power outputs, ranging from 168 to 296bhp.

The entry-level 168bhp Elroq 50 features rear-wheel drive with a gross battery capacity of 55 kWh and an electric motor on the rear axle. The Elroq 60 has a 63-kWh battery and a 150-kW electric motor. Both have a 100mph top speed.

The 281bhp Elroq 85 and Elroq 85x variants are both equipped with an 82-kWh battery but, thanks to an additional electric motor on the front axle, the all-wheel drive 85x has a peak output of 296bhp. Both 85 versions reach a top speed of 112mph and deliver a single charge range of more than 348 miles.

All versions support DC fast-charging and can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in under 28minutes. A full charge on AC takes approximately 5.5 to 8 hours, depending on the variant.

The Elroq will be launched in Europe in the autumn, but is unlikely to come to the UK until next year when full details of right hand drive models and specifications will be revealed..
