Plug-in Hybrid Skoda Superb Arrives in Ireland

Plug-in Hybrid Skoda Superb Arrives in Ireland

Skoda has officially launched its first plug-in hybrid model in Ireland in the new SUPERB iV. Skoda claims commuters in Naas, Drogheda, Navan or Greystones travelling to Dublin daily would have the potential to commute entirely by electricity in the new Plug-in Hybrid SUPERB.

The SUPERB iV may seem similar any other new SUPERB; however it conceals an electric motor with a power output of 115 bhp, capable of travelling up to 62 km on pure electric power as confirmed in the WLTP test cycle. In E-mode, the SUPERB iV becomes a zero-emission car – ideal for short daily commuting. The SUPERB iV’s also possesses a 1.4 TSI petrol engine, delivering 156 bhp. Combined, the new hybrid drive system boasts up to 930 km of range without refuelling. When both power units are working simultaneously, the SUPERB iV has a combined power output of 218 bhp and it can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of just 7.7 seconds.

Driving Mode Select is another innovation fitted to the SUPERB iV as standard and permits the driver to alter the vehicles driving characteristics and comfort settings by varying the steering, transmission and Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC). For safety, an E-noise sound generator creates a unique sound to alert pedestrians and cyclists. In Hybrid mode, both power units work together, and their interplay is automatically controlled electronically. This delivers combined consumption of 1.5l/100km and 14.0 to 14.5 kWh per 100 km, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 33 to 35 g/km. Annual road tax is €170.

 The SUPERB iV can be fully charged in about three and a half hours using the Mode 3 charging cable and a wall box with a charging output of 3.6 kW. Using the Mode 2 cable together with a standard household three pin plug socket, it is possible to charge the battery in approximately five hours. While in motion, the SUPERB iV can charge its battery or maintain the battery level using regenerative braking and also power from the petrol engine.

Compared to the standard SUPERB, the iV is supplied with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), as well as the most modern MIB infotainment systems coupled to digital dashboard displays. Prices start from €41,850 inclusive of government grants.

Commenting on the launch, John Donegan, Brand Director, ŠKODA Ireland “ŠKODA’s electric journey starts today with the SUPERB iV. The SUPERB iV offers the best of both worlds. The ability to plug-in and charge at home or work, means commuters in Naas, Drogheda, Navan or Greystones travelling to Dublin daily have the potential to commute, powered entirely by electricity. Plug-in hybrid vehicles offer significant advantages over so-called “self-charging hybrids” including significantly lower CO2 emissions and superior fuel economy.”
