Skoda’s electrification programme continues apace with the announcement of a new Octavia iV plug-in hybrid.

Priced from £30,795 on-the-road, the new Octavia iV will be available as both a hatch or an estate, and uses the petrol/electric hybrid drivetrain already honed in the Superb iV and Octavia vRS iV models.  The result is a fuel consumption figure between 282.5 and188.3mpg, and CO2 emissions between 22-33g/km.  Despite those figures, the four-cylinder 1.4 TSI petrol engine and 85kW electric motor produce a fraction over 200bhp.  Selecting E-mode, the Octavia iV will be able to cover up to 43 miles on electric power alone.  The Octavia iV’s 3.6kW on-board charger can be fully-charged in three-and-a-half hours using a standard domestic or workplace 16A supply.

SE Technology and SE L trim levels will be available from launch, with features specific to the iV including 18-inch Vega Aero alloy wheels, decorative door sills, a storage compartment in the boot for the charging cables, and unique instrumentation and displays.
