The ŠKODA CITIGOe iV is ŠKODA's first EV and a city car BEV, based on the VW e-Up platform. Range is moderate by modern BEV standards, but should be enough for a purpose-made city run around. The 40kW DC rapid charging, which is standard in the SE L trim and optional in the SE trim, adds flexibility to its role. Cute and nimble, particularly in stop start city driving, the CITIGOe iV is a strong contender in the affordable BEV city car market.

The table below shows the estimated time to charge your CITIGOe iV from empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.

* Based on Pod Point estimates, charging time can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and variation in charging rate. Max charging rate may also be limited by the vehicle.

CO2 emissions from UK grid electricity usage (Pod Point calculated)* 27 gCO2/km

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
