Introduction

What Car? says...

While it’s fairly typical for an updated car to get a new engine, it’s not often that an entirely new propulsion system is introduced. The Skoda Citigo e iV is somewhat different, however; rather than just tinkering with the Citigo’s petrol engines when it was tweaked in 2019, they were ripped out and stuck straight in the bin.

In their place is an 82bhp electric motor that’s powered by a 36.8kWh battery pack. In English, that’s enough juice for 162 miles of range in official tests. That’s some way behind the likes of the Renault Zoe, but way more than the paltry range offered by the Smart Forfour EQ, and even the more upmarket – and considerably more expensive – Mini Electric.
