Škoda Superb iV

The all-new plug-in hybrid electric version of Škoda’s accomplished Superb is the Czech brand’s first local foray into electric mobility.

In true comprehensive Škoda style, this Clean Car Program-applicable model is also available in both sedan and wagon body styles.

The launch of Škoda’s first plug-in-hybrid model, the Superb iV, has ushered in a new era of electromobility for the brand.

The Superb iV is the first in a family of electrified vehicles, with the plug-in-hybrid Octavia iV due to arrive next year, and the fully electric Enyaq iV following in 2023.

 

The Superb iV is available in New Zealand in both sedan and wagon silhouettes, and across two distinct specification grades, meaning no less than four separate options of plug-in hybrid Škoda are available here.

The Superb iV Wagon Style retails from $75,990 + ORCs, and the Superb iV Wagon Sportline from $79,990 + ORCs. Meanwhile, the Superb iV Sedan Style features a retail sticker of $72,990 + ORCs, while the Superb iV Sedan Sportline s available from $76,990 + ORCs. Each iteration qualifies for a Clean Car Program rebate of $5750.

 

Škoda’s new plug-in hybrid has an all-electric range of up to 62km and an unrestricted long-distance capability covering a total of up to 930km.

 

Depending on the situation and the selected driving mode, the iV models benefit from the electric motor and an internal combustion engine, providing drive either individually or as a pair.

 

The electric motor has a power output of 85kW, while the Superb iV’s 1.4 TSI petrol engine delivers 115kW. With a fully charged battery and full petrol tank, drivers heading off on a business trip, or on holiday with the family can cover up to 930km without any refuelling stops.

 

In addition to the fantastic feature set available in the Superb iV (which is close in specification to every other Superb in the range), drivers of the plug-in hybrid version can also select E-mode and Hybrid mode. In E-mode, the Superb iV is powered entirely by the electric motor. It can then travel almost silently and accelerate from 0 to 60km/h in 5.0 seconds. In Hybrid mode, both power units work together automatically. This makes for impressive combined fuel consumption of 1.5-litres/100km.

The Škoda Superb iV comes with 5 years / 150,000km mechanical warranty, and an 8 year / 160,000km high voltage battery warranty.
