Skoda Teases Electric Citigo Ahead Of May 23 Unveiling

Skoda’s is less than a week away from launching its first-ever electric car. The model, which builds on the outgoing Citigo, will premiere on May 23 in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Accompanying the announcement is a teaser image that previews the design of the small zero-emission model, which looks like the regular Citigo with a few changes.

The front grille has an enclosed design, since there is no internal combustion engine that requires cooling, the bumper appears to have been revised and the plug port is found on the rear quarter panel, replacing the fuel filler cap.

The Czech automaker is keeping all other aspects close to its chest for now, including the official name of the electric Citigo which, according to recent reports, might be called the Citigo-e iV. Nevertheless, we don’t have to look further than in Volkswagen’s backyard to shed some light on the model, as they have been offering the e-Up! for quite a few years now.

Essentially a sister car to the electric Skoda, the e-Up! uses an 18.7 kWh battery that powers the electric motor which, in turn, produces 82 PS (81 hp / 60 kW) and 210 Nm (155 lb-ft) of torque. In the NEDC cycle, it has a range of up to 160 km (100 miles). Recharging the battery from a 3.6 kWh wall box takes 6 hours, or 9 hours using the standard three-pin plug.

The facelifted Superb will also be unveiled next Thursday, with revised styling and new tech features. The mid-size car will gain a plug-in hybrid powertrain believed to have been sourced from the Volkswagen Passat GTE.
