The Skoda Superb iV is Skoda’s first production model to be fitted with plug in hybrid drive. A 1.4 TSI petrol engine and an electric motor deliver a combined power output of 160 kW (218 PS). The all‑electric range is up to 55 km in the WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) cycle; up to 850 km can be covered when combined with the petrol engine. This new drive variant is available for the Ambition and Style trim levels as well as for the SUPERB SPORTLINE and the SUPERB L&K. Production is set to commence at the Kvasiny site in early autumn this year; the market launch will take place at the beginning of 2020.
The new Skoda Superb iV is the brand’s first production model to feature plug‑in hybrid technology. By combining an efficient petrol engine with an electric motor, it offers particularly eco‑friendly mobility without compromising on performance. The battery has a capacity of 37 Ah and 13 kWh of energy: the car’s CO2 emissions are less than 40 g/km and the all‑electric range is up to 55 km (in the WLTP cycle). The ŠKODA SUPERB iV fulfils the Euro 6d‑TEMP emissions standard.
The battery can be charged conveniently at home overnight, for example, using a standard plug socket or in 3 hours 30 minutes using a wall box with a charging output of 3.6 kW. The socket for the charging cable is located behind a flap in the radiator grille. The Skoda Superb iV is also able to recharge or maintain the level of charge in the battery while driving, using its petrol engine and brake energy recovery. This allows drivers to cover a longer journey’s ‘last mile’ – in a city, for example – again without producing any emissions there.
