First-ever plug-in hybrid Škoda opens for orders
Škoda’s much-anticipated Superb iV plug-in hybrid is now available to order, priced from £31,970.
The brand’s first-ever plug-in hybrid, the Superb iV – which will be joined plug-in versions of the fourth-gen Octavia in Q2 2020 – combines a 156hp version of the brand’s 1.4 TSI petrol with a 116hp electric motor, giving a total 218hp and offered in both hatch and estate guise. The result is sub-40g/km CO2 emissions with an electric-only range of up to 35 miles and total range of up to 578 miles.
It’s offered in four trims – SE Technology for fleet customers, SE L, SportLine Plus, as well as the range-topping L&K – with the SE Technology trim offering fleets a P11d from £31,915 and Benefit-in-Kind band of 10%.
On-board features for the SE technology trim include leather interior, 8-inch infotainment system screen and Škoda’s third-generation infotainment system (MIB3). This features an in-built SIM card for data and wireless connection for SmartLink and Apple CarPlay, providing real-time traffic information and online support.
