First Skoda to go electric is the all-new Superb

First Skoda to go electric is the all-new Superb

We all know that Skoda stands for amazing value.

And the Superb has always offered a drawing room full of space - along with its armchairs - for not a lot of money.

Well, here's another offer from Skoda: it's the company's first electric car, the plug-in electric Superb iV. And the offer is brilliant for both business and personal users with up to 35 miles in zero emission mode and CO2 emissions of 35-38g/km.

For companies wanting a Skoda business lease the Super iV has a benefit in kind of just 16% this financial year. However, here's a tip: enquire about your business lease deal now, but don't take delivery until after April 06, 2020 - that way the Superb iV's company car tax band drops to 10%. 

For personal users, you'll be looking to use that battery to get as much driving done without using the petrol motor to save on money at the fuel pumps.

But the Superb iV can also travel up to 578 miles on a single full tank and a fully charged battery when in hybrid mode.

The big Skoda features a turbocharged 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine and an 85kW electric motor, giving it a total power output of 218PS.

There's a choice of five trim levels with the plug-in hybrid powertrain if you're thinking of leasing the Superb iV: SE Technology for fleet and business customers, SE L, SportLine Plus, as well as the top of the range L&K. 

Charging of the battery takes three hours and 30 minutes from a wall box (using a wall box with a charging output of 3.6 kW) and comes ready with a three-pin charger and wall box charging cables neatly stowed under the boot floor.

Although you can lease other Skoda Superb models now, the Super iV will arrive in the UK in January 2020.
