Important news for ŠKODA fans with information reaching MotorMartin Towers informing that they have entered a new era by launching their iV sub-brand.
ŠKODA have explained the following to MotorMartin. Enjoy:
In mid-May, the company presented its new iV E-Mobility sub-brand in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava. There, the manufacturer also showcased the two first electrified production models in its history: the all-electric Citigoe iV and the Superb iV plug-in hybrid, which are both set to make E-Mobility Simply Clever – offering quick charging, long ranges and affordable prices. ŠKODA has thus officially entered the era of electromobility, setting the course for a successful future.
Electric components have been produced for Volkswagen Group in Mladá Boleslav since September 2019. At the same time, the brand is supporting the development of an efficient charging infrastructure for electric vehicles – the company plans to have set up 7,000 charging points in and around its plants by 2025, investing 32 million euros to make this happen. What’s more, its staff are being comprehensively prepared for the demands of electromobility too; more than 13,000 employees have already been trained in electric vehicle production.
The brand’s first electrified models: ŠKODA Superb iV and ŠKODA Citigoe iV
The ŠKODA Superb iV and the ŠKODA Citigoe iV are the first electrified production models in the company’s 124-year history. From early 2020, the flagship Superb will be available as a plug-in hybrid featuring both an efficient petrol engine and an electric motor. The Citigoe iV is the first ŠKODA production vehicle to be powered exclusively by a 61-kW electric motor. The car effectively has a range of up to 260 km. In addition to being powered purely by a battery, it also does not generate any emissions.
