Skoda is pushing ahead with bringing its vRS performance sub-brand into its expanding range of electric cars – and that could well mean a hot version of the first addition to the line-up, the Elroq. At least according to a report by Auto Express.

Skoda has not detailed plans for any further performance models since the arrival last year of its first all-electric vRS vehicles, the Enyaq and Enyaq Coupé. But speaking exclusively to Auto Express, Skoda CEO Klaus Zellmer said that reaction to those cars has “legitimised” the idea of faster zero-emissions technology carrying a badge and brand built on hot hatchbacks.

“vRS is absolutely part of our future,” Zellmer told us. “If you look at what we’ve done with Enyaq, it’s a fabulous top-of-the-line vehicle – arguably the most aspirational car in our line-up, with four-wheel drive, around 300bhp. The price is higher, but it’s still a value proposition in terms of performance for the money.
