ŠKODA’s first electric car, the CITIGOe iV, will be launched in the second half of this year.
The small four-seater has a 61‑kW electric motor and 36.8‑kWh lithium‑ion battery which allow for a range of up to 164 miles in the WLTP cycle.
Just 3,597 mm long and 1,645 mm wide, the small Škoda also offers a spacious interior and a boot capacity of 250 litres. This can be increased to 923 litres by folding down the rear seats.
The front‑wheel‑drive CITIGOe iV is Škoda’s first all‑electric production vehicle and features an electric motor with a power output of 61 kW. The maximum torque of 210 Nm – which is relatively high due to the drive concept, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 62mph 12.5 seconds.
The battery can be recharged to 80% in 1 hour using a CCS (Combined Charging System) charging cable connected to a 40‑kW DC fast charger.
Using a 7.2‑kW AC wall box, the battery is charged to 80% in 4 hours 8 minutes, or 12 hours 37 minutes using a 2.3‑kW home‑charging station. The battery can also be recharged using a standard household plug socket.
