Skoda has announced that the Elroq electric crossover will replace the Karoq SUV. The vehicle will have an impressive range, and a vRS performance variant is probable.

The carmaker is reportedly developing a beautiful crossover that may be offered in a vRS performance trim. The new crossover will be known as Elroq, and it will replace the existing Karoq. The CEO of the Czech carmaker has stated his intention to increase production of Enyaq models, which the vRS index follows, due to the market's strong demand for them.

Initial concept art for the Elroq's design has been prepared, and it seems to borrow heavily from the Karoq's premium trim. The upcoming Skoda Elroq vRS is set to receive a powerful boost with the inclusion of two electric motors, one on each axle.

The combined power output of this configuration will be 300 horsepower and 460 Newton meters of torque. The crossover will include a 77 kWh battery, offering a driving range of around 500 km. Recent reports indicate that Elroq is scheduled to enter the market next year, followed by the release of a more enhanced version in the future.
