  • Efficient new e-Tec models introduce mild hybrid technology to new Octavia range




    • New 1.0 TSI e-TEC mild hybrid (mHEV) joins the Octavia line-up
    • 110PS unit features 48-volt Li-ion battery and belt-driven starter-generator
    • Allows engine to shut down without compromising other systems
    • Available in two trims with prices from £23,005 OTR


    The new fourth-generation Octavia range is set to expand again with the addition of a new, highly efficient 1.0 e-TEC engine. The new unit, which is equipped with a seven speed DSG gearbox as standard is the brand’s first mHEV or mild hybrid powertrain and is available in two trim variants from £23,005 OTR.


    At the heart of the e-TEC powertrain is a powerful 48-volt Li-ion battery and a combined belt-driven starter-alternator. The 48-volt system means that the new Octavia can coast with the engine completely switched off for extended periods, with the electric motor maintaining power to essential systems like the car’s power steering. The mild hybrid system can also recover energy during braking and store it in the battery and support the combustion engine by providing it with an electric boost. A direct current converter (DC-DC) converts the voltage from the 48-volt battery to the 12 volts required for the vehicle’s electrical system.

    The e-TEC’s hybrid technology further enhances the efficiency of the Octavia’s 1.0 TSI engine. This 110PS three-cylinder unit is already packed with innovation and features a lightweight aluminium crankcase and pistons. The connecting rods are so well balanced that the engine doesn’t require a balancing shaft as some three-cylinder engines do. It also features a turbocharger with variable vane geometry and operates using the fuel-efficient Miller cycle, in which the maximum torque is available 35 per cent earlier than in conventional processes. Coated cylinder liners increase the efficiency of both engines, while an injection pressure of up to 350 bar ensures lower hydraulic losses and a reduced fuel delivery rate. This saves on weight and helps to improve efficiency.

    Customers can specify the new 1.0 TSI e-TEC engine on two trim levels: SE First Edition and the fleet-focussed SE Technology. Available in both hatch and estate forms, prices range from £23,005 OTR for the First Edition Hatch up to £24,235 OTR for the SE Technology Estate variant.

    Highlighting ŠKODA’s commitment to improving efficiency and reducing running costs for drivers, the new e-TEC model will be joined at a later date by an iV plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant, which will also be available in sporty vRS iV form.
    Octavia e-TEC models will be open to order from 22 September.

    Late 2019 Passat Recall

    Just had a recall for my late 2019 manufactured diesel Passat saloon. Understand it involves a fuel pipe. Any one else had this or know more about it?

    Trust me, it will return. It does not fix itself. I had it appear, disappear and then reappear. 3 clutches I had. It will not go away, get it replaced

    Thought I should follow up on this in case it helps anyone in the future plus it gives me a sense of closure and I can move on from this confusing episode.

    "

    I assume any reputable garage can do that now. "

    I don't think so.

    They would need specific VW software like VCDS

    Still a lot of extra money for no extra economy I'd imagine.

    eTSi is not a plug in hybrid, it is a 48v mild hybrid. That said I would not be impressed with that consumption. On our 130bhp 1.5 manual we have achieved

    Can you personalize the dash

    So I think I've found all the basic options but surely more is possible?

    First thoughts are I want a fuel gauge not a range.
