Skoda presented the new Skoda Octavia RS iV

Characteristics of the power plant of the first hybrid model in the history of the long-known, but the Czechs found than to surprise the public, and colleagues.

The series has already published a teaser is supposed to seamlessly bring fans to the Skoda rapid premiere landmark – the “hot” Octavia, which first got a hybrid power plant. The debut took place only on the Internet, and, in General, no surprises brought – with one exception.

As expected, Skoda Octavia RS with index iV got the same kit from a petrol turbo and electric motor, and other conventionally “hot” models of the Volkswagen group, for example, Leon Cupra or the Volkswagen Golf GTE. Spark of the 1.4-liter engine and electric component develops 245 HP and 400 Nm of torque. They are implemented through a six-speed robot DSG.

Side the battery pack 13 kWh should provide “Octavia” the ability to drive on electric up to 60 km, and to recharge the batteries from a household outlet will take six hours (if you use a powerful charger time can be reduced by half). Most likely as a hybrid of “Golf” to start the new Octavia RS will be only on electricity, but the turbo engine will be connected upon reaching 130 km/h or optionally active acceleration.

With the connected acceleration Skoda prepared a surprise. Neither Volkswagen nor the Cupra have not yet announced the specific dynamic characteristics of the its hybrid sports cars, but Skoda did not hesitate. It is argued that the Octavia RS iV will gain the first 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. Accordingly, Formentor Cupra should be about the same dynamic, but the Golf GTE and the Leon Cupra will be, apparently, a little faster.

Faster was purely petrol “Octavia” of the previous generation, which is required for this exercise in less than 7 seconds. Will there be a hybrid modification of the current Octavia RS is not specified. Some bets can be made, perhaps, only at the possibility of entering the diesel version with the familiar 200-horsepower engine, but the confirmation or refutation of this information has yet to wait. Presumably, Octavia RS with a particular engine will be shown in the summer.
