Škoda presents its new iV e-mobility sub-brand
Škoda is writing a new chapter in its 124-year history: the Czech car manufacturer is entering the era of electromobility by launching its new iV sub-brand.
Škoda iV covers both the development of the brand’s own family of electrified products as well as a special ecosystem for mobility solutions. As part of the company’s 2025 Strategy, Škoda will be investing a total of two billion euros in the development of electric vehicles and new mobility services over the next five years. This is the company’s largest investment programme to date.
The first step of Škoda iV is represented by the presentation of the new Citigo and Superb hybrid version, as part of the line-up review of the Škoda's flagship. The premiere of the two iV models marks Škoda’s entry into the era of e-mobility.
The Škoda Citigo iV is the Czech manufacturer’s first all-electric vehicle. At 3,597 mm long, the zero-emission city speedster is perfect for urban areas. Its electric motor delivers 61 kW and the lithium-ion battery allows for a range of up to 265 km in the WLTP cycle. If the power runs out, the battery can be charged to 80 per cent in 1 hour at a 40-kW DC fast charger using a CCS (Combined Charging System) charging cable.
The Superb iV is the first Škoda model to feature plug-in hybrid drive. The Superb iV is powered by a 1.4 TSI petrol engine delivering 156 PS and an 85-kW electric motor. The maximum power output is 160 kW/218 PS, allowing for particularly sustainable mobility without compromising on dynamism. The car’s CO2 emissions are below 40 g/km. The 13-kWh battery enables an all-electric, zero-emission range of up to 55 km in the WLTP cycle and can be charged using a standard household plug socket, a wall box, or while driving using the petrol engine as well as brake energy recovery. When used in combination with the petrol engine, the range is 850 km. Furthermore, the Superb iV is equipped with the latest generation of infotainment system.
