New Superb 2020 from Skoda is plug-in hybrid
Skoda finally reveals to the public the new Superb 2020, available both as a sedan and as a station wagon and for the first time in the history of the brand, also available as a plug-in hybrid. This version is called “Superb iV” and takes its place in the homonymous (iV) family that will grow as the Skoda electrification plan progresses.
A 156 HP petrol engine is combined with an electric motor of 85 kW for a total performance of 218 HP! According to Skoda, Superb iV complies with Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standards and does not emit more than 40 grams of CO2 per km while the 13 kWh battery ensures a zero emission of 55 km.
When the vehicle acts as a hybrid, the autonomy can reach 850 kilometres! The only thing the company does not mention is the performance of Superb iV although, given that the other technical characteristics are not far from those of the Volkswagen Passat GTE, we expect that the 0-100 km/h will be completed in about 7.4 seconds.
The most obvious differences of design are located at the back with the label of the company being replaced by the letters “Skoda”, the new LED luminaires and the chrome stripe between them that lends an air of luxury.

The sales of the renewed Superb start in September, although the plug-in hybrid version iV will follow shortly thereafter, at the beginning of 2020.
