Skoda has announced the CITIGOe iV on 23 May. Utilizing the VW NSF platform, it will be Skoda's first all-electric vehicle. The virtually identical VW e-Up! and SEAT Mii Electric will also be built on this platform. It's currently expected that the Skoda CITIGOe will go into production by the end of 2019, with deliveries starting in the first months of 2020. Unconfirmed reports indicate an entry-level 24 kWh and top-of-the-range 49 kWh edition will also be available.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Skoda CITIGOe iV. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 19 hours 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 11h45m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x31A 7.2 kW † 6 hours 22 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 11h45m 12 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x31A 7.2 kW † 6 hours 22 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Skoda CITIGOe iV.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 40 kW † 30 kW † 52 min 100 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 40 kW † 30 kW † 52 min 100 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 40 kW † 30 kW † 52 min 100 mph
CCS (175 kW DC) 40 kW † 30 kW † 52 min 100 mph

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Skoda CITIGOe iV

Pricing

The Skoda CITIGOe iV has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £19,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Skoda CITIGOe iV is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Skoda CITIGOe iV is £16,000.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Skoda CITIGOe iV is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Skoda CITIGOe iV is 61 kW (82 hp). The maximum torque is 155 lb-ft. The Skoda CITIGOe iV is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 12.5 seconds. The top speed is 81 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Skoda CITIGOe iV has an estimated total capacity of 36.8 kWh. The usable capacity is 36.8 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 135 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 7.2 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 6 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 19 hours.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 40 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 30 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 55 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 90 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Skoda CITIGOe iV is about 270 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 148 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

CO2 Emission

The Skoda CITIGOe iV emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
