New CITIGOe IV
Only the most innovative cars from Škoda carry the iV badge, and although iV stands for ‘Innovative Vehicle’ it also means applying technical innovation to build vehicles that are much more intelligent, individual and intuitive. Above all, vehicles that are for everyone and let you take charge of the future. Welcome to the CITIGOe iV, the first fully electric car from ŠKODA. With absolutely Zero Emissions the ŠKODA CITIGOe iV, available to test drive at Sinclair ŠKODA in Swansea, can charge from 0% to 80% in just one hour and has an impressive driving range of up to 170 miles.
The ŠKODA CITIGOe iV – Electric in Every Sense
It’s not simply the electric motor that makes driving the Skoda CITIGOe iV feel electric, it’s the instant maximum torque of 212 Nm that comes with it. And it’s the remarkable agility around tight city streets, and above all it’s the satisfaction of driving mile after mile of emission-free travelling, all on a single, quick charge.
Charging the Skoda CITIGOe iV
The plug-in charging cable compartment in the boot ensures your electric cable is always at hand, yet neatly out of sight. Whether you recharge at home, at work or en-route to your destination there are many options available to charge your CITIGOe iV. The CITIGOe iV battery can be recharged to 80% in just over four hours when plugged in, and if the car is fitted with the Combined Charging System, the same charge can be achieved in just one hour - With peak performance of up to 61kW and a driving range of between 140 to 170 miles, the CITIGOe iV achieves a great range.
The motor’s energy recuperation functionality enables effective use of the car’s kinetic energy for battery recharging, for example when braking or decelerating. When the accelerator is released, the electric motor’s braking function slows down the vehicle and simultaneously recuperates brake energy. The ‘FREE’ electricity recovered by regenerative braking is stored in the cars battery and is used to drive the vehicle, thereby helping to extend the range.
