2025 Skoda Epiq premieres as entry-level electric SUV

Skoda Epiq Front

Skoda’s second addition to its future EV portfolio has broken cover as an intriguing and affordable compact crossover. We share the latest on pricing, practicality, and driving range, below.

Meet the all-new Epiq which, it seems, has graduated from the same self-assured naming school as Skoda’s Superb saloon. First impressions suggest that confidence is justified, too. Boasting a highly competitive, sub-£25,000 starting price, the Epiq is raring to butt horns with Citroen’s e-C3 and MG’s 4  — undercutting the likes of Volvo’s new EX30 by some margin.

 Money isn’t everything though, so what else has the Epiq got going for it? Well, practicality should prove a major selling point. The Skoda’s cavernous 490-litre boot promises to trump just about everything in its class, including the MG, Volvo, and much pricier Honda e:Ny1, by over 100 litres.

Then there’s the way it looks. Abundant louvres and intakes seem to feature in many concept car designs, and the Epiq is no exception. Both the front and rear are adorned with vertical grille-like holes which encompass Skoda’s “Modern Solid design language”, and form part of the new “Tech-Deck Face”. While those futurist styling accents put us in mind of Lego’s Bionicle robot series, we can’t deny the Epiq’s fundamental shape and proportions are some of the best we’ve seen from Skoda.

Inside, things look just as promising. According to Skoda, the Epiq “…will be the first production vehicle to feature a minimalist Modern Solid interior focusing on durable, practical and sustainable materials.” But, considering most of its competitors are making equally grandiose claims about their eco-friendly cabins, Skoda’s assertion might not be as revelatory as it first seems. Nevertheless, the blend of interesting new materials, and an uncluttered layout, instantly endows the Epiq with a more premium feel than you’d expect for this price.  

Also worth noting is the fact that, just like the exterior, the cabin design is still technically in a preliminary, pre-production phase, so both could change ahead of the car’s 2025 launch. However, several sources have corroborated that both elements are near the final article.

What about the driving experience? Unfortunately, at this stage there’s precious little we can share. We can reveal that the driving range comes in at over 250 miles, which is less of a home run than other aspects, but still enough to make the Epiq a realistic proposition for families. Plus, perhaps the lackluster range will mean punchier performance. We’ll wait with bated breath to find out.

There’s plenty to like about Skoda’s upcoming baby E-SUV, but how similar do you think the production-ready version will look? We’re not counting this chicken until it hatches.
