Škoda Auto has unveiled its first ever electric concept car in Shanghai, declaring that electric cars will be a pillar of its development strategy.

The Vision E has a maximum output of 225 kilowatts and can run at a top speed of 180 km/h, with a mileage of 500 km.

The concept also features Level 3 autonomous driving, which means it can drive itself on express ways and park itself without human intervention.

Škoda plans to release its first purely electric car onto the market in 2020. Škoda CEO Bernhard Maier said it will launch five entirely electric cars in various segments of the market before 2025.
