  • Read time: 3 minutes
The ŠKODA CITIGOe iV will be the first fully electric Skoda. The small electric car will be launched early 2020. It will offer a range of 164 miles and is therefore an ideal car for commuting. The smaller car also offers a striking amount of space and is not only quiet, but also quite fast.

Ten days of commuting to work with a full battery

It has been investigated that people today travel an average of 13 miles a day commuting. That means that with a charged battery you can easily go to work and back for ten days with the electric ŠKODA CITIGOe iV. The surprising Skoda Citigo has a lithium ion battery, a battery that can be fully charged in four hours and eight minutes. In an hour you can have charged the car to 80% with the use of a charging station. You can use the Combined Charging System (CCS). Incidentally, you can also simply charge the car with a 230V connection, but it will take a longer time to charge.

From 0 to 60 miles per hour in 12.5 seconds

As mentioned previously, you can charge a ŠKODA CITIGOe iV with a 230V connection. You’ll need to take into account a charging time of between five and eight hours. With a standard public charging point you can charge around two and four hours faster. If you have a fast charger available, you can charge your ŠKODA CITIGOe iV in a maximum of thirty minutes to eighty percent. The compact and reliable Skoda has a capacity of 61 kW and 210 Nm of torque. You can travel from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 12.5 seconds. Ideally, you will have a charging station at home. Then a charging point of 7.4 kW is sufficient because the Skoda has a maximum load capacity of 7.1 kW. So you need a 1-phase charging station, with a type 2 plug.

A charging point on public land

You can always have a charging station installed on your own land if you own it. If you do not have your own land, you can request a charging station from your city council. If that request is honored, a public charging station will be created in the area. This is a charging station that can be used by everyone. If you decide to buy a charging station, make sure you arrange a professional installation by reputable installers. This is simply a must if you want to drive your ŠKODA CITIGOe iV worry free and want to be sure that the battery is recharged and ready every morning. The installation requires quite a bit of technical insight and skill. Get a professional installation to ensure that your battery is always being charged correctly.

Maintenance is hardly necessary on the ŠKODA CITIGOe iV

What is striking about the ŠKODA CITIGOe iV is certainly the speed, while you hardly have to do any maintenance on the electric Skoda. The ŠKODA is very quiet and has an automatic transmission as standard. It offers a striking amount of space due to the compact technology and by opting for an electric car you also explicitly choose the environment. The eye also wants something and that is why the grille of the Skoda is very nicely painted in body colour, the direction indicators are integrated and the bumper of this electric Skoda has integrated fog lamps.
