For many drivers, 2021 was a year of discovering new possibilities. For many of them, this meant their first encounter with eMobility and its possibilities, such as recuperation. ŠKODA Storyboard tried out this technology in three very different environments.
Our presenter Anna first tried out the ŠKODA OCTAVIA iV on Prague’s Strahov hill, then drove the ŠKODA SUPERB iV plug-in hybrid from the picturesque village of Kryštofovo Údolí to Ještěd peak and back. Her journey was both quick and efficient, with minimal fuel consumption.
For her third trip, Anna combined the city and the mountains when she took a trip from Karlovy Vary to the peaks of the Ore Mountains. And naturally, her final destination was the local wind farms.
Influencer Tereza Salte also learnt to appreciate recuperation behind the wheel of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA iV, as she found out what it’s like to drive an electric car around town. “What I especially appreciate is how much petrol was saved – most of our daily journeys into the city were powered by electricity, and the sixty-kilometre range was plenty for us.”
Photographer Jan Řeháček, aka Kopernikk, took the ŠKODA SUPERB iV into the mountains with his four-legged friend.
But it was not only the theme of eMobility that galvanised ŠKODA Storyboard this year. We also showed, for example, that ŠKODA cars can be found around the world in the service of men and women of the law. Some of these cars are fitted with special equipment, including a submachine gun holder.
