VW Group-owned Skoda says it has more than met its EU CO2 fleet target in 2021.

The average emission value of all models delivered in 2021 (to European Union member states, and also Norway and Iceland) was 114.8 g/km – 3 g below the limit set by the EU.

It says the increased share of all-electric vehicles, in particular, lowered the average emission values and thus made a significant contribution to meeting the targets.

Skoda also says it is ‘forging ahead with the decarbonisation of its vehicle fleet’. In 2021, the Czech car manufacturer delivered around 43,400 all-electric vehicles to the European Union member states, including Norway and Iceland, along with 27,600 plug-in hybrids.

Electric SUV Enyaq iV

Skoda highlights the all-electric SUV Enyaq iV as playing a major role in achieving its EU CO2 fleet target. It has already delivered around 39,000 units to customers in the EU – and Norway and Iceland. It was the best-selling electric vehicle in the Netherlands and the Czech Republic in 2021.

As part of its ‘next level Skoda strategy 2030’, the brand plans to launch at least three more all-electric models by 2030, all of which will be below the Enyaq iV in terms of size and price. Depending on market developments, the goal is to increase the share of all-electric models in Skoda brand sales in Europe to 50 to 70 percent by 2030.

The brand aims to reduce its fleet emissions by more than 50 per cent compared to 2020.
