Currently reading: New Skoda Octavia iV plug-in hybrid arrives with 43-mile EV range
New-generation Octavia line-up expands with 201bhp plug-in hybrid, priced from £30,795

The electrification of Skoda's model line-up continues with the introduction of the new Octavia iV plug-in hybrid, which will be available to order in the UK from 3 November.

Priced from £30,795 in entry-level SE Technology trim, the Octavia iV is said to be the "most fuel-efficient Octavia ever built", achieving between 188.3mpg and 282.5mpg on the WLTP combined cycle while emitting 22-33g/km of CO2.

The PHEV takes its power from a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine and an 127bhp electric motor for total outputs of 201bhp and 258lb ft.

The same system features in the larger Superb iV and, in a higher state of tune, the hot Octavia vRS iV, which will also become available to order next week. 

A 13kWh battery pack gives the Octavia iV an official electric-only range of 43 miles and can be charged at rates of up to 3.6kW in as little as three-and-a-half hours.

The Octavia iV is supplied with both a 16A Type 2 charging cable and a 10A three-pin cable. 

A range of driving modes are available, including E-mode, Hybrid, Hybrid Auto and Sport, which each offer different combinations of electric and combustion power. 

Like any Octavia, the iV is available as both an estate and a hatchback, with prices climbing to £33,605 for the range-topping SE L Estate. All iV options are eligible for a 6% business-in-kind tax rate, making the iV an especially attractive option for fleet buyers. 

With this latest addition, the Octavia is now available with petrol, diesel, mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains.

282 mpg wltp

Crazy just crazy, what european pen pusher came up with a scheme that can make a phev look to have far better fuel consumption than a pure bev like a leaf.

With fake figures like that you wonder if they worked for VAG at some point

I drove a phev today and saw over 200 mpg on the trip computer. Charge it fully and run it properly and that MPG is achievable.
