Already featuring in the Volkswagen Passat GTE, Golf GTE and Audi A3 e-tron, the Superb's plug-in hybrid set-up will be the first of its kind from Skoda and will undoubtedly spread to other models such as the Kodiaq SUV.
The Superb’s exterior will reportedly come under the surgeon’s knife with revised styling at the front, as well as new LED tail-lights possibly linked by a LED light bar in the middle.
The rear badge will be replaced by the Skoda name written across the bootlid.
The brand’s new rear badging will also feature, with Skoda spanning the rear instead of the traditional, central roundel.
Details for Australia are yet to be confirmed, though the current engine line-up - a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol in either 162kW or 206kW with all-wheel drive - is expected to remain. The former 140kW 2.0-litre turbo-diesel isn’t expected to return to the Superb.
