ŠKODA is committed to leading the way in electric. Find out how.
Over the next 5 years, ŠKODA is investing €2 billion (£1.8 billion) in alternative driving systems and new mobility platforms. By the end of 2022, we plan to deliver a number of new iV electrified models to fit our 'Green Future' initiative. We have already trained 11,000 of our colleagues (and counting) in electric vehicle production.
‘Green Future’ is our initiative to build a more sustainable future for ŠKODA and you, our customers. We have set ambitious targets to reduce our environmental impact in the decade up to 2025, including reducing the CO2 production of our fleet by 30%. Electric is the future.
Introducing the new generation of electric vehicles from ŠKODA. Available from early 2020.
The new ŠKODA SUPERB iV plug-in hybrid model is our executive car with cutting edge design and luxurious style - powered by a combined 1.4 litre TSI petrol engine and an electric motor.
The new all-electric ŠKODA CITIGOe iV is built for the city. Compact, highly manoeuvrable yet surprisingly spacious, with a range of up to 170 miles.
For the first time you can own the ŠKODA OCTAVIA as a plug-in hybrid. This option combines a 1.4-litre engine and a 75-kilowatt electric motor to give you 204PS of power. On a full charge the hybrid engine can run purely on electric for around 35 miles and still performs impressively, going from 0-60mph in just 7.9 seconds.
Built on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, the striking, athletic ŠKODA VISION iV represents a step change in electric mobility. It’s a fully electric, five door crossover coupé concept vehicle with all-wheel drive, a luxurious, spacious interior and an expected range of over 300 miles.
Buying an electric car is a big change. Here are some of the reasons you might want to make it your next choice.
Don’t go to the petrol station. Go where the smart money is. Charging a battery from empty to full costs far less than a tankful of fuel.
All-electric vehicles produce no tailpipe emissions, so the CO2 output of your daily commute is precisely zero.
The driving range of electric vehicles is extending all the time, with the ŠKODA VISION iV expected to achieve over 300 miles between charges. And there are now more than 9,000 charging locations across the UK, with hundreds more added every week.
Electric vehicles have far fewer moving parts than petrol or diesel cars, making them easier to service. The entire drivetrain has just three components – the convertor, motor and battery.
When you put your foot on the accelerator of a petrol or diesel car, there is a “lag” before the car actually accelerates. With an electric vehicle, acceleration is instantaneous, for a more responsive and fun driving experience.
Our electric iV models are powered by cutting-edge lithium-ion batteries. Loaded with densely packed energy, they safely and sustainably power your car. Our Battery Management System ensures performance won’t deteriorate even over long periods of time.
Unlike BEVs, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles combine an electric motor with a traditional combustion engine. PHEVs are still charged the same way as BEVs and can be driven purely with electricity (for 34 miles** in the case of the SUPERB iV model). Driving a PHEV will drastically reduce your fuel consumption and provide a smoother, quieter drive, particularly in the city. Find out more about our SUPERB iV model by clicking below.
BEVs are, as you might expect, purely electric and primarily charged at home or at public charging points. Our zero-emission BEVs are great fun to drive and easily serviced. Find out more about our CITIGOe iV model by clicking below.
