Start of production for the battery-powered Skoda Citigo iV

The first Skoda Citigo iV has rolled off the production line at the VW plant in Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava.

The five-door city EV is the brand’s first battery-powered car. Energy comes from a 32.2 kWh lithium-ion battery that feeds a 61kW electric motor. The front-wheel-drive Citigo iV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.3 seconds and has a top speed of 130 km/h. Skoda claims a range, in everyday conditions and with its battery fully charged, of up to 260 km.

Skoda is offering the Citigoe iV exclusively as a 5-door and in the SE or SE L trim. Customers can opt for several packages depending on their country. The Function 1 package, for example, includes a multimedia holder, waste bin and boot nets. The Comfort package has heated front seats, six speakers and parking sensors at the rear. The Comfort PLUS package includes 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.

There are driver and passenger airbags (the latter can be deactivated) and Lane Assist is a standard feature in every Citigo iV.
