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