Introducing The ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS iV - ŠKODA's First Plug-in Hybrid

ŠKODA unveiled their first Plug-in Hybrid powertrain vehicle, the OCTAVIA RS iV, a fourth generation ŠKODA OCTAVIA that combines tradition with innovation. Paying tribute to the history of the RS, the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS iV features signature black bodywork elements and a sporty interior design. Steering the way to a sustainable future, the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS iV is the first ŠKODA RS model with a plug-in-hybrid powertrain.

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS iV is the first RS model where dynamic performance is ensured by a plug-in hybrid powertrain. A 1.4 TSI petrol engine and an 85-kW electric motor combine to produce an output of 180kW (245 PS) and a maximum torque of 400 Nm, with CO2 emissions of around 30 g/km over the WLTP cycle.
