Skoda is one of the brands that more is it taking to sell a hybrid vehicle or electric. It also has been slow to bring to market a model of SUV and have come up with a sensational product, so it seems that the Czech brand is waiting for the right moment to break into a tough market of hybrid and electric vehicles.
This week has been a confirmed Skoda Superb plug-in hybrid. The Superb, as you know, is the the vehicle of greatest size of the Czech brand; a vehicle very suitable for long trips with your family provides a great comfort. It is for this reason that it may be a little strange that Skoda decides to enter the segment, “plug-in” with a vehicle to travel, as on trips is where the least takes advantage of the electrical part of a mechanical hybrid.
on the other hand, it is true that not everyone who buys a Skoda Superb travel several hundreds of kilometers every day, and the advantage of the mechanical hybrid plug-in is that in the first 100 kilometers of a tour, with the battery fully charged, the fuel consumption is very low. In this way, combining the high quality of the Skoda Superb when you are travelling with the savings that can be assumed for the daily commute if you are less than 100 or even 150 miles.
The aim of Skoda is to have with 5 models electrified by the year 2025. It is rumored that the Skoda Superb plug-in hybrid will continue to be a all-electric vehicle of small dimensions, as it could be a Skoda Citigo based on the cousin Volkswagen e-up!, they have an autonomy of 160 kilometers. Would it be likely that this car is sold in the chinese market, which are getting very fashionable this kind of cars have very small dimensions with electric propulsion.
