ALL-NEW OCTAVIA RS iV PLUG-IN HYBRID IS THE ŠKODA HIGHLIGHT AT THE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

The first plug-in hybrid powertrain to feature in a ŠKODA vRS model paves the way towards a more sustainable future which has become a trend in recent years.

In addition to the world premiere of the Octavia vRS iV on 3 March, ŠKODA will also be presenting one further Octavia iV model at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.

Exterior

the all-new Octavia vRS iV featured with its black ŠKODA grille, dynamic front apron with black Air Curtains and a rear apron featuring Aero Flaps and a matching rear diffuser in sporty black, eliminates all doubts of its heritage.

The black alloy wheel design reveals brake callipers finished in red; the hatch’s tailgate comes with a black vRS rear spoiler, while the estate features a roof spoiler in body colour.

Interior

Headlined predominantly in black, colourful highlights are provided by contrasting stitching on the sports seats with integrated headrests and on the leather-covered three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel.

Powertrain

A plug-in hybrid powertrain, is the beating heart of this new charger, A 1.4 TSI petrol engine and an 85-kW electric motor combine to deliver a system output of 180 kW (245 PS) and a maximum torque of 400 Nm.

The Octavia vRS iV can cover up to 55 kilometres (WLTP) in all-electric mode, i.e. without generating any local emissions. A sports suspension with signature vRS fine-tuning ensures dynamic handling.

Additional Octavia model with hybrid technology

ŠKODA is complementing its Geneva exhibition of the Octavia vRS iV by surrounding it with one more electrified version of its best-seller.

The Octavia iV also features a plug-in hybrid powertrain; its 1.4 TSI combined with an electric motor to provide a combined output of 150 kW (204 PS) and a maximum torque of 350 Nm.

Available in conjunction with the SE and SE L trim levels, this model version has a lithium-ion high-voltage battery with a capacity of 37 Ah and an energy content of 13 kWh. Like the vRS iV, it can be conveniently charged at home from a 230-volt mains socket or a wallbox.
