ŠKODA’s iV brand involves more than just electric cars and plug-in hybrids, though. It is an entire ecosystem that makes life easier for ŠKODA electric car owners and drivers in a Simply Clever way. Battery production is an integral part of electrification – so this year ŠKODA Storyboard gave you an insight into how batteries for plug-in hybrids are made at the Mladá Boleslav plant. In one of the neighbouring factory sheds, cars built on Volkswagen Group’s MEB and MQB platforms are made: the ENYAQ iV, OCTAVIA and KAROQ. This production process is unique within Volkswagen Group.
The family of ŠKODA plug-in hybrids was diversified this year with the addition of the OCTAVIA RS iV: a sporty, dynamic car that manages to remain environmentally friendly.
