For ŠKODA, future electric vehicles will be more than just cars with an alternative power source. They open up an entirely new chapter for us. This is also an opportunity to introduce you to the world of environmentally friendly iV subbrand models and their fully connected ecosystem, making eMobility as straightforward and convenient as possible for you. And that’s just the beginning. Expect more fun, less emissions, more possibilities and less restrictions. Join us on our journey into the future!
The ‘i’ in the name of the new sub-brand symbolises that ŠKODA iV models are ‘innovative’ and ‘intelligent’, offering tailor‑made mobility solutions. ŠKODA iVs are also ‘iconic’ and ‘inspiring’ with their emotive design full of character. They are ‘individual’ in trim levels and customisation options. All ŠKODA iVs distinguish themselves with their ‘intuitive’ operation. The ‘V’ stands for vehicle.
Times are changing. It’s time for new technologies to serve mankind first and foremost, and that the days of mindless overconsumption are over. It’s time to refocus on the important things in life. It’s time for surprising, clever ideas that add a touch of magic to the everyday routine. It’s time to act human in every possible way, and to put a little more fun into existence. Put simply, it’s time to RECHARGE LIFE. Are you with us?
Our entry into the eMobility era is a key pillar of our “GreenFuture” sustainability strategy. Under that strategy, we have set specific environmental targets for our products and vehicle production. The transformation from combustion engines to electric cars is an essential lever for this.
Over the next five years, ŠKODA will be investing around two billion euros in alternative drive systems and new mobility services such as car‑sharing platforms. By the end of 2022 the ŠKODA iV family will be established.
The all‑electric ŠKODA CITIGOe iV and the ŠKODA SUPERB iV plug‑in hybrid will make eMobility Simply Clever – offering quick charging, long ranges, affordable prices and nimble dynamics. The ŠKODA iV range perfectly exemplifies how we will move you into the future: with intelligence, efficiency and fun.
The all-electric VISION iV provides a preview of our new upcoming model. The four‑door crossover coupé impresses with sporty, emotive lines and exudes a feeling of spaciousness. A dynamic driving experience is ensured by all-wheel drive and two electric motors outputting 225 kW. The car has a maximum range of 500 km in the WLTP cycle.
The VISION E concept car is the first time we have embodied our vision of zero-emission driving with the highest level of dynamics. Built on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, the VISION E is teeming with inventive features both inside and out. Driven by positive energy.

All electrified iV models feature state-of-the-art Li-ion battery technology with the highest possible energy density, developed with safety as our highest priority. Our Battery Management System ensures optimal performance over thousands of charging cycles.
Battery electric vehicles rely solely on electric motors for propulsion. They derive their electricity primarily from charging points and store it in battery packs. The key benefits of electric vehicles are that they emit no emissions, they run silently, offer nimble dynamics, and servicing them is not so complex.
What makes plug-in hybrid vehicles different from BEVs is that they combine a classic internal combustion engine with an electric motor which can be recharged from an electrical outlet. Even the PHEV can be driven in pure electric mode, but the range is limited to 50 to 60 kilometres. The result is low fuel consumption and a quiet electric drive, especially around the city.
The eMobility lifestyle is teeming with advantages, and as the electric revolution grows, it’s only going to get better.
There’s no disputing the environmental benefits of eMobility: lowering our reliance on fossil fuels while producing less air pollution as we travel. People in cities with higher concentrations of electric cars also enjoy a much lower degree of noise pollution.
eMobility isn’t only about saving the environment—it also comes with a healthy amount of savings for the wallet. With lower fuel and maintenance costs than cars with combustion engines, and with many governments offering tax incentives for ownership in some markets, electric vehicles present a far more attractive value for owners.
As air pollution and climate change become increasingly urgent issues, cities have been establishing low-emissions zones (LEZs) off-limits to many conventional vehicles. In the coming years, these LEZs will only become more prevalent.
