Skoda Citigoᵉ iV Unveiled As Brand's First Electric Car
The most important numbers to remember are 165 miles or 265 kilometers of range per WLTP.
After the Volkswagen e-up! and the SEAT e-Mii, Skoda is finally getting its version of the group’s petite electric car. Say hello to the oddly named Citigoe iV, which largely carries over the design of the conventionally powered model but ditches the internal combustion engine for a zero-emissions setup. At the heart of the eco-friendly Citigo is an electric motor rated at 82 hp (61 kilowatts) and an instant torque of 210 Newton-meters (155 pound-feet).
That might not sound like much, but bear in mind the Citigoe iV is a tiny A-segment car measuring only 3597 millimeters (141.6 inches) long and 1645 mm (64.7 inches) wide. Skoda isn’t saying how heavy the pure electric city car is, but the ICE-powered versions tip the scales at well under 1,000 kilograms (2,204 pounds).
