Skoda announced a new Superb back in October and now they are venturing into the world of battery power with the arrival of their first plug-in hybrid called the Superb iV.

The SUPERB iV has a combined power output of 218bhp thanks to a 1.4TSI delivering 156bhp and an electric motor with 115bhp.

Skoda are saying the Superb iV will be able to drive up to 62km on pure electric power and it should be good for a range of 930km between refilling.

Thanks to the electric motor providing additional boost the Superb will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.7 seconds.

The SUPERB iV is offered in Liftback (saloon) and Combi (estate) across four specification levels Ambition, Style, SportLine and L&K.

Commenting, John Donegan, Brand Director, ŠKODA Ireland “ŠKODA’s electric journey starts today with the SUPERB iV. The SUPERB iV offers the best of both worlds. The ability to plug-in and charge at home or work, means commuters in Naas, Drogheda, Navan or Greystones travelling to Dublin daily have the potential to commute, powered entirely by electricity. Plug-in hybrid vehicles offer significant advantages over so-called “self-charging hybrids” including significantly lower CO2 emissions and superior fuel economy.”

Skoda Ireland has advised customers to place their orders early as availability will be limited to 250 units next year.

Prices start from €41,850 (excluding delivery charges and inclusive of government grants).
