With that in mind about the design of the new Skoda Fabia, the upcoming electric version may look like a small crossover compared to the current model which is a hatchback. Zellmer also reportedly stated, “The biggest challenge at the moment is the cost of battery-electric vehicles, especially when producing a car [the size of] the Fabia. We will have to stay a little patient."

It is being guessed that the new all-electric Skoda Fabia might be based on the entry-version of Volkswagen’s MEB architecture. The model may become one of the last electric vehicles from VAG to have the mentioned platform before the auto major moves to the new SSP platform. Reports also suggest that there are also chances that Skoda may have a new name for this new all-electric model. Skoda is aiming to transition to a new electric car lineup by the end of the decade.
