This system means it is classed among plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs), which are very economical and efficient to run. Its purely electric green drive is paired with a petrol engine for extra momentum and range.

The plug-in hybrid OCTAVIA iV is powered by a turbocharged 1.4 TSI petrol engine combined with an electric motor. Both engines are connected to an automatic six-speed gearbox and the torque is transmitted solely to the front-axle wheels. Two power variants are available: 150 kW for the OCTAVIA iV and 180 kW for the OCTAVIA RS iV.

The optional head-up display projects important information, such as current speed, navigation instructions, detected traffic signs, or active driver-assistance systems, directly on to the windscreen.

Safety

OCTAVIAs in the EU will be fitted with a central airbag on the inner side of the driver’s backrest as standard. This tenth airbag in the OCTAVIA’s interior is designed to protect the driver and front passenger from colliding into each other, especially if the car is hit from the side. Passenger safety is enhanced by a host of new advanced driver-assistance systems, including Collision Avoidance Assist, Turn Assist and Exit Warning.
