The Citigo-e iV joins the conventional petrol-engined version and features an 83hp electric motor, giving a WLTP-rated range of up to 260km alongside a 0-100km/h acceleration time of 12.3 seconds and top speed of 130km/h.

The 36.8kWh battery pack can be charged to 80% capacity using a 7.2kW AC wall box in 4 hours 15 minutes, or 12 hours 37 minutes using a lower-powered 3.6kW home charging station. Depending on the market, higher trim models can also make use of a 40kW DC fast charger using a CCS (Combined Charging System) charging cable, giving an 80% charge in 60 minutes. Drivers can also use the Škoda Connect app to check on battery charge status.

The addition of the new battery and electric motor doesn’t impact on boot space and the Citigo-e iV brings the same 250 litres of space as the standard model, rising to 923 litres with the rear seats folded flat.

Two trim levels will be available, with details varying by market.  Optional packs are also available, again dependent on the market. The Function 1 package, for example, includes a multimedia holderwaste bin and boot nets. The Comfort package brings heated front seats, six speakers and parking sensors at the rear. The Comfort PLUS package includes convenient features such as a heated windscreen, heated front seats, a light and rain sensor, a Coming/Leaving Home function, a cornering function for the fog lights, parking sensors at the rear and six speakers
