The engineSee full engine specs
This plug-in performance model combines a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a punchy electric motor to give 242bhp. It’s quick for an Octavia, taking 7.3sec to go from 0-62mph, although that’s rather sluggish by hot hatch standards. It does offer incredibly good fuel economy if you keep the battery topped up, though, and the claimed electric range is officially rated at up to 43 miles.
