Skoda's first plug-in hybrid model, the iV, has been mass-produced at the Kvasiny plant in the Czech Republic. The new car shares the same platform as the Volkswagen Passat GTE, equipped with a lithium battery with a capacity of 13kWh, which can bring the pure electric cruising range of 56km under the WLTP standard.
In terms of appearance, the new car and the fuel version have little difference. The main change is the use of a closed front grille, which not only helps to reduce wind resistance, but also highlights the identity of its new energy vehicle. In addition, under the cover on the right side of the front grille, the charging interface of the car is hidden. According to official information, the car will be equipped with a 3.6kW car charger, which lasts for 3.5 hours.
In terms of power, it is understood that this model will be equipped with a 1.4L displacement turbocharged engine with a maximum output of 150Ps (110kW). The engine is matched with a motor with a maximum power of 85kW (115Ps). The combined output maximum power is 160kW (218Ps). In addition, the car is also equipped with a 13kWh battery pack, which can bring 56km of WLTP standard comprehensive cruising range to the car.
