We’ve gone in depth on Skoda’s wide range of conventional fuel cars in our comprehensive Skoda car models guide, so head there if you want to read about the history of Skoda as well as their more famous models such as the Kodiaq and Fabia.

With the Skoda Enyaq iV, their first electric car released in 2021, this guide takes a look at their burgeoning electric and hybrid range…

Skoda Octavia iV: Plug-in hybrid

The Skoda Octavia is perhaps the most recognisable model in the Skoda range. Referred to internally as the ‘heart and engine’ of Skoda, it was the obvious choice to be offered in PHEV form when the latest generation was released in 2020.

Available in hatchback and estate form, the Octavia iV is stylish, spacious and safe. Easy to charge and maintain, it is a dynamic, more sustainable car that meets all your driving needs. Combining a 1.4-litre petrol engine with a 85kW electric motor, it offers a combined 204PS of power, 350Nm of torque and an all-electric range of 44 miles.

Having won Best Hybrid Estate at What Car? Electric Car of the Year Award, it’s a model that goes from strength to strength.

Skoda Superb iV: Plug-in hybrid

An executive car that offers an interior that ensures you always travel in business class whether you’re driving or a passenger, the Skoda Superb was the first plug-in hybrid to be offered by the manufacturer when it was released in 2020.

Available as a hatchback or estate, the Superb iV offers three drive modes. E mode allows the PHEV to take advantage of its 39 miles of electric driving, Hybrid mode utilises both the electric and petrol engines together or independently depending on driving conditions, and Sport unleashes the full power of the Super iV’s 218PS power.

Built for those who are always on the move, it features a cutting-edge design on the outside and luxurious style on the inside to match its ingenuity under the bonnet.

Released in the UK midway through 2021, the Enyaq iV has been quick to claim a number of plaudits since its launch including Car of the Year at Parkers New Car Awards, Car Dealer Awards and Business Car Magazine.

One of the most significant new models introduced in the brand’s 126-year history, this fully electric car has been designed from the ground up to deliver a completely unique driving experience, and aims to set a new benchmark for space, technology and value in the all-electric market.

Available in the UK with two battery size options, a 62kWh and 82kWh, the Enyaq iV delivers a WLTP driving range of up to 331 miles and can be rapid charged to 80% capacity in as little as 38 minutes. Using a 7.4kW wallbox at home it will take over nine hours to charge from empty at a rate of 22 miles per hour of charge.

The range has recently been expanded with the addition of two new models; the Enyaq iV 80x with four-wheel drive and the ultra-exclusive Founders Edition of which only 50 are available in the UK. Prices start from £32,785 making it ineligible for the plug-in car grant.

The groundbreaking all-electric SUV marks the start of the brand’s electromobility journey, and sets the tone for Skoda electric cars of the future. Speaking of which…

Skoda Vision iV: Concept

Currently only a concept car, the Skoda Vision iV is the manufacturers blueprint for the future of Skoda electric cars and gives a hint at what’s the come.

An on-trend crossover-coupe, it is characterised by athletic looks and a hugely spacious interior. Offering all-wheel drive it will feature a range of 300 miles, and a power output of 225kW (the equivalent to around 300PS) leading to a top speed of 110mph.
