Skoda has finally revealed its first ever all-electric vehicle as part of it's future e-mobility scheme. The popular and award-winning CITIGO has been overhauled and juiced up with an all-electric motor as well a few design tweaks to accommodate the fantastic new changes.
The nippy four-seater will be powered by a 61kW electric motor and contains a 36.8kWh lithium-ion battery which not only means that it will generate zero emissions but also have a capable range of 164 miles on a single full charge (WLTP cycle).
The Skoda CITIGOe iV battery is capable of being recharged to 80% in 1hour using a CCS (Combined Charging System) charging cable connected to a 40kW fast charger. However, if you don’t have access to a fast charger, then you can plug the CITIGOe iV directly into your home plug socket or opt for a 7.2kW AC box that is capable of charging to 80% in just over 4hours.
It's not just the engine that has received an overhaul to bring the CITIGO into the e-mobility era. The interior of the CITIGO has seen some revisions to fit the new styling of the CITIGOe iV. Standard equipment and features will include electric front windows, Climatronic, remote central locking, Swing Radio II and a Move&Fun smartphone docking display on the dashboard. There will also be electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors.
The new Move&Fun app will add additional functionality and connectivity with the CITIGOe iV allowing a mobile phone to be used as an additional display for vehicle data, media playback and even navigation. New mobile services will also be available that will allow users to monitor the battery or air conditioning remotely. The interior styling trim will have a full leather detailing package and ambient lighting featured on the dashboard.
The CITIGOe iV will be launching in 2020 as part of the Skoda’s future e-mobility strategy. We will, of course, keep you updated with any news in the run-up to the launch.
