Volkswagen Group’s plant in Bratislava witnessed the rollout of the first-ever Skoda CITIGOe iV.
The electric hatchback is the first all-electric model from the Czech brand. Initially unveiled in May 2019, the mini hatchback is capable of delivering a driving range of 260km while also providing high torque and potent dynamic traits.
The CITIGOe iV production commences shortly after parent Volkswagen recently began production of the ID.3 electric vehicle (EV) at their Zwickau plant.
Being a small, zero-emission vehicle featuring an above-average amount of space for occupants and their luggage, the CITIGOe iV is suited for inner-city journeys.
Its real-life range allows drivers to cover up to 260 km.
Despite its compact external dimensions with a length of 3,597 mm and a height of 1,645 mm, there is plenty of room in the interior for four people.
The city car uses a 32.2kWh lithium-ion battery that powers an electric motor pushing out 83PS and 212Nm of torque. These figures are transmitted to the front wheels helping the CITIGOe iV achieve 0 to 100kmph in 12.3 seconds.
The hatchback can also be charged to 80 percent in an hour using a 40kW DC fast charger.
Although fairly small, the hatchback comes with a boot space of 250 litres, which can also be extended to 923 litres by folding the rear seats.
Skoda will offer the CITIGOe iV in two trim options: Ambition and Style trim. Meanwhile, Skoda will also offer four optional packages: Function 1 package, Comfort package, Comfort PLUS package and EXTRA package (exclusive for Czech customers).
