Skoda sold all stocks of electric cars Citigo-e IVApril 9, 2020
The Skoda Citigo-e IV was discontinued due to high demand: all 400 British electric vehicles sold out less than two months after its launch.
Skoda’s first electric production car, the Citigo-e iV, was temporarily discontinued after all UK models were sold out in less than two months. Approximately 400 electric cars built in Bratislava were allocated to the UK market, and at the end of January they began to arrive at dealerships. By mid-March, everything was sold.
Citigo has been removed from Skoda’s online configurator, but a company spokesman said it will be available again when Skoda resumes production after the coronavirus pandemic.
“We had high hopes for the car, and customer demand was exceptionally high. As a result, it sold out faster than expected, ”the representative of the Czech brand added.
Citigo is the only model to be discontinued. High volume models such as Fabia, Octavia and Superb remain available for order. The Skoda factory in Bratislava has been closed since March 16, and the date of its reopening has not yet been confirmed.
Citigo-e iV, a sister car of the Volkswagen e-Up and Seat Mii Electric, is one of the most affordable mainstream electric cars on offer, starting at £ 16,955. It offers 260 km of electric mileage, and its battery can be charged from zero to 80% per hour.
