All-electric Skoda Citigo-e revealed in teaser

The Czech manufacturer has shown the first design sketch of the electric city car.

Skoda has revealed the first official image of its first all-electric model – the Citigo-e.

The city car has been around for several years, so the styling revealed in this new design sketch is hardly anything new, although it shows the all-electric model might feature revised styling next to the current petrol model. Revisions are set to include a shut-off front grille, a new front bumper and the more obvious charging flap to replace the petrol flap.

Skoda’s first electric car is being unveiled later this week alongside a facelifted version of its flagship Superb model, which will also be revealed with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. That will become Skoda’s first hybrid car, which shows the manufacturer’s commitment to electrification.

While no official details have been revealed, it’s expected to have a far longer electric range than its sister model – the Volkswagen e-Up!. The VW had an electric range of under 100 miles, whereas the Citigo-e could be able to travel up to 186 miles on a full charge, according to Auto Express magazine.

However, an updated version of the Volkswagen Up! is expected shortly, which will use the same batteries and tech as the Citigo-e.

We’ll be revealing further details about the new Citigo-E and updated Superb later in the week.
