Skoda is enhancing its plug-in hybrid offerings with the introduction of the Kodiaq iV, priced from £41,935 OTR. This marks the first time the technology has been integrated into the Kodiaq model, following the successful launch of the Octavia iV in 2021. The Kodiaq iV features significant improvements in electric-only driving range and overall efficiency.


Available for order now, the Kodiaq iV’s design incorporates a plug-in hybrid drivetrain from the outset, ensuring an optimal balance of performance and efficiency. The new system includes a 1.5 TSI petrol engine paired with an electric motor, delivering a combined 204PS and 350Nm of torque. The motor is integrated into the DQ400e DSG gearbox, which allows seamless transitions between electric and hybrid modes.

The Kodiaq iV boasts a notable electric-only range of up to 75 miles, courtesy of a larger 25.7kWh battery pack. The pack supports rapid DC charging, allowing for a 10-80% charge in approximately 26 minutes at 50kW. For AC charging, the system supports up to 11kW, requiring around 2.5 hours for a full charge.


The Kodiaq iV SE model is equipped with 18-inch Mazeno alloy wheels, LED front and rear lights, and heated front seats. It also features a 13-inch satellite navigation touchscreen display, 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit, and tri-zone climate control. The SE L model, on the other hand, upgrades to 19-inch Rapeto alloy wheels and adds LED Matrix headlights with adaptive front lighting. The interior includes ecoSuite black design selection with both artificial and real leather, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, and an electrically operated boot.

Drivers can select from three driving modes: E-mode for electric-only operation, Hybrid mode for a balance between petrol and electric power, and Sport mode for enhanced performance. The Kodiaq iV is available in SE and SE L trims, with prices starting at £41,935 and £44,635 respectively. Both trims feature extensive standard equipment, including advanced safety systems, LED lighting, and large infotainment displays.


Fleet drivers will find the Kodiaq iV particularly attractive due to its low Benefit in Kind rate of just 5% and potential savings on fuel costs through home charging. The new model is poised to be a significant addition to Skoda’s range, combining eco-friendly credentials with practicality and performance.
