Mladá Boleslav / Frankfurt, 9 September 2019 – This year sees the introduction of the new ŠKODA iV sub-brand and ŠKODA’s two first electrified production models – the ŠKODA SUPERB iV and the ŠKODA CITIGOe iV – marking the beginning of the electromobility era for the Czech carmaker. In addition to the SUPERB iV, ŠKODA’s first plug-in hybrid, a rugged SUPERB SCOUT has also been added to the portfolio of the recently revised flagship. The SCALA compact car and the KAMIQ city SUV also both come in two new variants: in typical ŠKODA style, the new, top-of-the-range MONTE CARLO versions exude a sporty lifestyle, and the two new G-TEC variants have been added to ŠKODA’s portfolio of efficient and particularly eco-friendly cars that run on natural gas (CNG). All of the latest models can be found at stand A11, pavilion 3.0 at the IAA 2019 from 10 to 22 September.
Bernhard Maier, ŠKODA AUTO CEO, said, “ŠKODA has entered the era of electromobility. The dawn of this era is marked by the introduction of two models in one go: our first all-electric car, the CITIGOe iV, as the brand’s first step into the E-Mobility era and the SUPERB iV, the brand’s first plug in hybrid. In addition, we’re presenting the latest version of our flagship, the SUPERB, featuring a refined design and new technologies.”
Stepping into a sustainable future: under the umbrella of its new ŠKODA iV sub-brand, the company bundles the development of its own family of electrified cars sporting an emotive design, a futuristic interior and state-of-the-art technologies, and the establishment of a special ecosystem for mobility solutions such as the brand’s own charging card for its customers. ŠKODA AUTO will be spending a total of two billion euros on this over the next five years. This is the largest investment programme in the company’s history.
