Skoda’s first clean electric car, the Citigo-e iV, will cost £ 16,955 after government subsidies when it goes on sale in the UK next month.

The efficiently updated version of the Skoda Volkswagen e-Up, a new city car, comes with 81 hp headlines. and up to 164 miles with the WLTP Test Protocol.

The start of orders for the Citigo-e IV starts on December 10, and the car is offered in two trim levels. The price of the car is 20,455 pounds before the state grant of 3,500 pounds is taken into account. The price after issuing a grant of GBP 16,955 is substantially cheaper than the price of GBP 19,300 for the closely related Seat e-Mii. E-Up pricing has not yet been announced, but is expected to start at around £ 23,000.

While we are promised that the two upcoming Skoda, which will be on the upcoming MEB Volkswagen Group’s purely electric architecture, are more adventurous, Citigo-e is much more traditional. A body-colored radiator grill is the most obvious sign of a power source different from a regular car. All Citigo-es will have five doors, and in the UK there will be two trim levels – SE and SE L.

As in e-Up, power is supplied from one electric motor, which drives the front wheels and is powered by a 36.8 kW / h lithium-ion battery located under the floor; 155 lb-ft of torque should provide a peppy response. Skoda requires 0-62 mph 12.5 seconds, but the top speed will be limited to 81 mph. Expect it to be very close to the curb weight of the e-Up at 1229 kg.

Entry-level SE models can support charging up to 7.2 kW using a standard AC port, while a 2.3 kW home wall box can be used. The models also come with air conditioning, leather steering wheel, 14-inch alloy wheels, DAB radio and central locking. Using a standard AC port, a 7.2 kW system will require just over four hours to deliver the same charge level; A household wall box with a power of 2.3 kW will take about 12 and a half hours.

Options SE L with higher characteristics, equipped with a combined charging system (CCS), allowing the use of a fast DC charger at speeds up to 40 kW. Trim is also equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, external lighting, heated front seats, parking sensors and color mirrors.

A DC charger and a higher rated AC cable will be optional on the cheaper model. Both models are equipped with a smartphone dock that is integrated into the dashboard – just like a regular Citigo – capable of displaying some EV-related information using the Skoad Connect app.
