CHENGDU, Feb. 27 (NBD) -- New-energy vehicles (NEVs) will account for 20 percent to 25 percent in Skoda's total vehicle sales by 2025, according to the marque's development plan. 

The carmaker will kick off its NEV project in 2019, with a plan to start with plug-in hybrids. 

The company's first NEV in China will likely be the plug-in hybrid version of the Kodiaq. 

Expected to draw juice from a 1.4T turbo engine and two electric motors, the car will deliver a range of up to 1,000 kilometers under the hybrid mode, with the all-electric range being 50 kilometers. 

Following the launch of the car, Skoda will introduce the plug-in hybrid version of the Octavia.
