It seems that the management of the Czech brand is preparing some changes regarding the positioning of models with the RS badges. As you know, now this abbreviation is used for dynamic modifications with classic internal combustion engines, but in the near future everything can change a little.
According to portal Motor1, in the future the nameplate eRS will appear on the fully electric crossover, the concept of which was presented last year at the motor show in Shanghai under the name Vision E, which our colleagues were told by the head of the sales and marketing company Alain Favi. Recall that at this time, the vRS nameplate proudly bears the Octavia model, but he also did not exclude the possibility of returning to the charged hot-hatch Fabia. It is also known that such a label will appear on the Kodiaq cross.
As for the hero of this news, at the motor show in Shanghai Vision E appeared with a 102-strong electric motor in front and 204-strong rear. Not so long ago, a related brand Volkswagen presented an electric conceptual sedan I.D. Vizzion at the Geneva Motor Show, whose engines are located in a similar scheme, which hints at us about unification, especially since both models should be put on public roads by 2022, although the usual modification of the crossover (the one without the eRS nameplate) will be launched in 2020.
It is also important that the head of the sales and marketing department told about some technical characteristics of the novelty. It will be built on the basis of a modular platform MEB, which was designed for electric cars, which again makes it similar to the announced Volkswagen electric models, and the stock of the serial version will be no less than 500 kilometers, because, according to Alain Feivi, with worse characteristics, there is no point.
He voiced Alain Favie and information about the cost of the serial version of the electric cross. According to him, the buyers will cost at least 28 000 pounds sterling, which is 1,300 pounds cheaper than in the British market now stands the cross Karoq in the bundle SE L with a five-seater saloon.
