"Emission-free mobility is one of our key goals for the future, and my opinion is that electric vehicles are the right answer to the increasingly stringent emission limits and the need to develop the automotive industry sustainable." explains Skoda Auto BOD Member for Technological Development Dr Eckhard Scholz. "Our strength lies in a combination of our highly competent and qualified technological development staff and the Volkswagen Group's extensive know-how, and I believe that it is exactly this combination that will enable us to develop an electric vehicle to be seen as a real step forward."

The first Skoda Octavia Green E Line models will be on the roads autumn 2011, with the driving data collated by drivers fed back into further research and development.
