Over the next 5 years, ŠKODA is investing €2 billion (£1.8 billion) in alternative driving systems and new mobility platforms. By the end of 2022, we plan to deliver a number of new iV electrified models to fit our 'Green Future' initiative. We have already trained 11,000 of our colleagues (and counting) in electric vehicle production.
‘Green Future’ is ŠKODA's initiative to build a more sustainable future for ŠKODA and it's customers. They have set ambitious targets to reduce their environmental impact in the decade up to 2025, including reducing the CO2 production of our fleet by 30%. Electric is the future.

Types of Electric/Hybrid Vehicles Explained
Everything you need to know about hybrid, fully electric and fuel cell cars
Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)Switching seamlessly between power sources, a Toyota full Hybrid Electric Vehicle offers the versatility to drive using either electric energy or a combination of petrol and electric. It has both a fuel tank and larger battery which is self charged by the vehicle when in use.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle drives using either electric energy or a combination of petrol and electric. It has a fuel tank and a larger battery which can also be recharged through an external charging point, this allows longer periods of pure electric driving.
Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)Electric Vehicles are propelled solely on electrical energy that is stored in a battery. The battery is mainly recharged with electricity from an external charging point.
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)Fuel cell vehicles are propelled solely on electrical energy. The energy is produced in a fuel cell stack from hydrogen gas stored on board and is converted to electricity, emitting nothing but water.
