Skoda Octavia Green E-Line
Skoda has begun testing ten electrically powered Octavia Green E Line. The aim of the test is to gain practical experience with electric propulsion. The Octavia Green E Line is powered by an electric motor with 116PS (85 kW) and 270Nm (199 kW). The performance is not very good, but it is excellent for everyday driving in the city – from 0 to 100 km/h in 12 seconds and a top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph). The overall range is around 150km, which will satisfy the demands of most European commuters.
The battery holds 26.5 kW/h energy and weighs about 315 kilograms. The battery block is mounted under the middle and rear floor panel and in part in the boot. The car will seat five. "The Octavia Green E Line shows our technological expertise in the field of electric mobility. It is a milestone in our comprehensive sustainability strategy. Our development work in this field is in close cooperation with Volkswagen Group." commented ŠKODA CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland
