Skoda Superb iV

Skoda has revealed details about it first plug-in hybrid model – the Superb iV – which goes on sale in the UK in January 2020.

The hybrid model will be priced from £31,970 and combines a turbocharged 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine and 85kW electric motor, delivering a total performance of 218PS (160kW) and CO2 emissions of less than 40g/km (NEDC correlated).

It also offers a zero-emission drive up to 35 miles (56km) and can travel up to 578 miles (930km) on a single full tank and a fully charged battery when in hybrid mode.

Owners can choose between four trim levels with the plug-in hybrid powertrain: SE Technology for fleet customers, SE L, SportLine Plus, as well as the top of the range L&K.

Charging takes three hours and 30 minutes from a wall box (using a wall box with a charging output of 3.6 kW) and comes ready with a three-pin charger and wall box charging cables neatly stowed under the boot floor.

In addition to the standard equipment, drivers can take advantage of a host of new features. New driving modes include E-mode for electric and hybrid drive and Sport mode, which delivers maximum system performance on hybrid drive.

In hybrid driving modes, the car’s display will show the electric range available as well as the potential range if the auxiliary applications in the vehicle (heated seats, air-conditioning etc) are turned off.

The plug-in hybrid also comes with dynamic chassis control, which constantly adapts to suit the road and driving conditions.

Drivers opting for SportLine Plus or L&K trim will have Virtual Cockpit as standard – a customisable 10.25” display replacing the traditional dials behind the steering wheel. 

The Superb iV follows the new Scala and recently revealed Kamiq by featuring the new third-generation infotainment (MIB3). 

Featuring an in-built SIM card for data connection and wireless connection for SmartLink and Apple CarPlay, this new system provides real-time traffic information and online support, allowing route suggestions to be calculated more quickly and accurately.

The system can also notify the driver about traffic jams in real-time and swiftly calculate suitable alternative routes.

The new Superb iV will arrive in the UK in January 2020.
