  • Start of production for the battery powered Skoda Citigo-e IV




    • Trailblazer: the Citigoe iV is ŠKODA’s first all-electric model
    • Perfect for urban environments: the five-door city car is agile, zero-emission and spacious
    • Nimble plug-in: the 32.2-kWh lithium-ion battery feeding the 61-kW engine allows for a reallife range of up to 260 km


    ŠKODA AUTO has taken the next step on the path to electrifying its model range: today, the first Citigoe iV rolled off the production line at the Volkswagen plant in Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava. The zero-emission five-door city speedster is the brand’s first battery-powered car. Its real-life range allows drivers to cover up to 260 km, yet the car still boasts high torque and dynamic driving performance.


    Michael Oeljeklaus, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Production and Logistics, said, “The Citigoe iV’s start of production marks a new milestone in the history of ŠKODA AUTO: it is our brand’s first all-electric model with many practical advantages as well as high manufacturing quality.”

    The battery-powered Citigoe iV is made at the Volkswagen plant in the Slovakian capital, Bratislava. This is also where it celebrated its world premiere on 23 May this year during the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.

    The zero-emission city speedster’s lithium-ion battery has a net capacity of 32.2 kWh and feeds a 61- kW (83-PS) electric motor. Due to the way in which electrically powered vehicles work, the car’s high torque of 212 Nm is available even when pulling away. This means the front-wheel-drive Citigoe iV accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.3 seconds, the short burst from 60 to 100 km/h takes just 7.3 seconds, and it has a recorded top speed of 130 km/h. In everyday conditions and with its battery fully charged, the Citigoe iV can travel up to 260 km.

    Being a small, zero-emission vehicle boasting an above-average amount of space for occupants and their luggage, the Citigoe iV is perfectly suited for inner-city journeys. Despite its compact external dimensions with a length of 3,597 mm and a height of 1,645 mm, there is plenty of room in the interior for four people. By folding down the rear seats, the capacity of the boot can be increased from 250 l to 923 l.

    The most striking external feature of the model’s all-electric variant is the ŠKODA grille, which is bodycoloured and almost fully filled in. In addition, the Citigoe iV bears ‘ŠKODA’ in block lettering at the rear as well as iV badges. Fog lights and LED daytime running lights come as part of the standard equipment, while the cornering light function is available as an optional extra. The zero-emission newcomer can be fitted with 14-inch steel wheels including wheel trims or 16-inch alloys.

    ŠKODA offers the Citigoe iV exclusively as a 5-door and in the SE or SE L trim. Furthermore, customers can opt for several attractive packages depending on their country. The Function 1 package, for example, includes a multimedia holder, waste bin and boot nets. The Comfort package treats the users to heated front seats, six speakers and parking sensors at the rear. The Comfort PLUS package includes convenient features such as a heated windscreen, heated front seats, a light and rain sensor, a Coming/Leaving Home function, a cornering function for the fog lights, parking sensors at the rear and six speakers.

    Driver and passenger airbags (the latter can be deactivated) and head/thorax side airbags ensure a high level of passive safety. Lane Assist is another standard feature in every Citigoe iV.

    If cam sensor is faulty it will use crank instead, but consequently it will turn over for longer.

    Re: should a 190 be any noisier ?

    My B8 150 Tdi was disappointingly noisy/unrefined at lowish revs - lots of diesel clatter in the cabin - substantially worse than the B7 I had before.

    How to test an exhaust gas tempoerature sensor?

    Long story this, it follows from previous woes of sensors, DPF etc. The 2.0 tdi 170 quattro got sorted by cleaning DPF and replacing the temperature sensor

    Re: VCDS is it suitable for me?

    You could go for an older version like the Hex Can but if you get a new car you would need to change. Check out the Ross Tech site to see what is possible.
