Electric Skoda Citigo e will go on sale next year

Skoda has revealed the Citigo e iV its first fully-electric car, based on the existing Citigo platform.

The new model is expected to go on sale in early 2020, with prices predicted to start from £18,000.

It offers a maximum range of 165 miles and uses a 36.7kWh battery.

The battery is integrated into the car’s chassis, meaning it retains a 250-litre boot.

Skoda says the Citigo e’s battery can be recharged to 80% in one hour using a CCS (Combined Charging System) charging cable connected to a 40kW DC fast charger. Using a 7.2‑kW AC wall box, the battery is charged to 80% in four hours.

Exterior styling is largely carried over from the Citigo, although the dashboard has been revised for the all-electric version.

The car will be offered in five-door guise with a choice of Ambition or Style trim levels.

Standard equipment includes electric front windows, climate control, remote central locking, and a smartphone docking station.

The Citigo e iV is part of Skoda’s new electrification strategy. It hopes that electric vehicles will make up 25% of its sales by 2025. It will launch two more electric vehicles in 2020.
