Mladá Boleslav, 25 November 2019 – ŠKODA AUTO is backing up the brand’s entry into the age of electromobility with its new iV models by offering modern connectivity solutions and clever mobile online services. The ŠKODA CITIGOᵉ iV and SUPERB iV not only display the battery’s current level of charge and available range in the car, but can also show them on their owner’s smartphone as an option. Battery charging can be adjusted to accommodate for planned journeys and programmed in advance. What’s more, it can be activated remotely at the touch of a button. Furthermore, thanks to the integrated eSIM and included data allowance that come as standard, the SUPERB iV is always online. As a result, it not only provides real-time traffic information for more accurate route calculations, but also allows access to infotainment apps – free to download for one year – for weather forecasts and the news, for example.
The ŠKODA CITIGOᵉ iV comes with the new Swing II radio including a smartphone docking station. The radio offers a dual tuner – optionally with a DAB receiver too – as well as a hands-free kit. Combined with the Move&Fun app, the owner’s smartphone acts as an additional display for showing vehicle data and maps or as a media player and can be connected using Bluetooth. The Move&Fun app has been given a new function specifically for use in the electric CITIGOᵉ iV: the e-Manager displays the remaining range as well as clear graphics depicting the energy flow in the car and its recuperated energy. It can also be used to optimise charging management, taking specified charging stations and planned routes into account.

Outside of the car, for example at home, the ŠKODA Connect mobile online services allow remote access to the CITIGOᵉ iV. The ŠKODA Connect app, which can be installed on a smartphone or smartwatch, enables owners to remotely view vehicle data such as the current range, start, stop and adjust battery charging to accommodate for planned journeys, as well as control the Climatronic – either to cool down or heat up the car. In addition, the app displays the current vehicle status and upcoming service appointments. It is also possible to call up driving data such as the mileage, average speed and energy consumption as well as where the CITIGOᵉ iV is currently parked. Furthermore, owners can remotely check whether their car’s windows and doors are closed.
