The 36.8 kWh lithium‑ion battery allows for a range of up to 265 km in the WLTP cycle – meaning the CITIGOe iV is perfectly equipped for traffic in modern cities.
It can be recharged to 80 per cent 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 per cent in 4 hours 8 minutes, or 12 hours 37 minutes using a 2.3 kW home‑charging station.
The first all‑electric ŠKODA looks noticeably different to the CITIGO models with combustion engines, especially at the front. The ŠKODA‑typical radiator grille is body-coloured, the front bumper below it has also been redesigned. The car comes with fog lights and LED daytime running lights as standard, the cornering function is optional.
Despite being just 3,597 mm long and 1,645 mm wide, the smallest ŠKODA also offers a spacious interior for four passengers and a boot capacity of 250 l. The boot can easily be increased to 923 l by folding down the rear seats.
The front‑wheel‑drive CITIGOe iV features an electric motor with a power output of 61 kW. The maximum torque of 210 Nm (155 lb-ft) is available straight away, as is typical for electric motors. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.5 seconds. Its top speed is 130 km/h.
Standard equipment includes electric front windows, Climatronic, remote central locking, the Swing II radio and the Move&Fun smartphone docking station on the dashboard. Using the Move&Fun app, a mobile phone can be used as an additional display for vehicle data, for media playback or as a navigation system.
On top of that, the CITIGOe iV comes with new mobile online services for the app, allowing the battery or air conditioning to be accessed remotely.
In addition, the CITIGOe iV comes equipped with Lane Assist as standard and features front airbags as well as head and thorax airbags for the front seats.
