New 2020 Skoda Superb iV PHEV: price range announced
Skoda has released a full price list for its new plug-in hybrid Superb, which combines a 1.4-litre petrol engine and an electric motor
Skoda has confirmed the new Superb iV plug-in hybrid saloon will be priced from £31,970 when it reaches the UK market in January. Prices will climb to £40,240 for the range- topping Laurin & Klement estate variant.
The Superb iV will be available in Skoda’s four familiar trim levels; the entry-level SE Technology is aimed at fleet customers and comes as standard with leather upholstery, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and an eight-inch infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Skoda’s mid-range Superb iV SE L is priced from £34,755 and adds Matrix LED headlights, reworked tail lights with dynamic indicators, headlight washers and additional chrome exterior trim. Buyers also get a rear centre armrest with cupholders and an electronically operated boot-lid.
The Skoda Superb iV Sportline Plus model starts at £38,490. It features a more aggressive body-kit, a pair of sports seats, a sports steering wheel, black headlining, a customisable ambient interior lighting system, a 9.2-inch infotainment system and a 10.25-inch digital instrument binnacle.
Skoda’s flagship Laurin & Klement variant is priced from £38,960 and adds a three-zone climate control system, a heated windscreen, an electronically adjustable passenger seat, heated front and rear seats, a rear view camera, park assist and an uprated 10-speaker sound system.
The new Skoda Superb iV is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, an electric motor and a 13kWh battery pack, which delivers a combined output of 215bhp and 400Nm of torque. Skoda also claims the new powertrain will provide the Superb with emissions figures of 40g/km of CO2 and a maximum all-electric range of 34 miles.
Skoda’s plug-in hybrid Superb will be produced alongside the firm’s combustion-engined models in Kvasiny, where just under 400 examples are produced every day at a rate of one car every 198 seconds. Of these, the plant can currently accommodate up to 60 PHEV models per day.
Skoda’s fully electric models will be produced elsewhere. It’s first full EV, the Citigo iV, is produced in Bratislava, while the firm’s first MEB platform vehicle – expected to be closely related to the Vision iV SUV – will be built in Mladá Boleslav.
