Skoda Citigo iV: Pricing and specs revealed for all-electric model
A new era in Skoda history is imminent, with the release of the brand’s first fully-electric car: the Citigo iV.
Priced from just £16,955 including the £3,500 government plug-in car grant, the Citigo iV has been completely re-engineered to factor in a compact battery pack and 61kW electric motor. Offering 170 miles of range, the iV joins the regular Citigo line-up which was refreshed last year.
Designed to be the ideal choice for driving in the urban environment, two trims will be available at launch featuring the same battery and electric motor for identical performance.
SE trim, priced from £20,455 before the government grant is factored, comes equipped with climate control, three spoke leather steering wheel, plus Swing DAB radio and remote central locking.
SE L, priced from £22,815 excluding the government grant, adds a variety of additional equipment including 16-inch alloy wheels, ambient lighting, heated front seats, rear parking sensors and body coloured door mirrors and handles.
Producing an instantaneous 210Nm of torque and a 0-62 of 12.5 seconds, the Citigo iV can be charged to 80 percent in four hours 15 minutes using a 7.2kW wall box, or 12 hours 37 minutes using a lower-powered 3.6kW home-charging station.
The SE L model can be charged faster using a CCS charging cable connected to a 40kW DC fast charger. This allows the Citigo iV to be recharged to 80 percent in 60 minutes.
The Skoda Connect app also lets you check and control features of both models remotely, including the charge status.
The Skoda Citigo iV will be open to order on 10 December, with first deliveries expected in early 2020.
