New Electric SKODA Citigoe iV
The SKODA CITIGOe iV is the first fully electric car manufactured by SKODA and is now available to order from Pulman SKODA in Durham and Cramlington.
The electric car offers up to 170 miles (based on WLTP) and as the original Citigo is renowned as a city car, the electric range is more than enough to assist you in your weekly driving routine. View the current offers available on the CITIGOe iV.
Should you need to travel further than 170 miles on a weekly basis there’s a few options to make sure you get the most out of the new CITIGOe iV. The new CITIGOe iV also uses brake energy regeneration. This means when the brake is released the electric motor’s braking function slows down the car and simultaneously recuperates brake energy. Electricity from the regenerative braking is stored in the traction battery and is then used to drive forward the car, saving more miles on your car.
Everyday there are more and more charging points and stations opening across the North East and the rest of the UK; by 2025 there will at least 100 charging hubs nationally too (GridServe), so you’ll never be short on finding an area to charge your car. If you drive long miles to your place of work on a daily basis, it would best to charge your CITIGOe iV at your place of work during the day or every evening at home. If you’re travelling in a new area, there’s many apps available to download which will inform you of your closest charging point such as Zap Map, Chargemap and WattsUp to name a few.
Charging & Battery
So when it comes to charging your CITIGOe iV, how long does it actually take? There are four options to choose from and the times below are based on charging the battery to 80%.
- Mode 2 (2.3 kW): battery is charged from an ordinary household outlet with an estimated charging time of 12 hours 43 minutes.
- Mode 3 (7.2 kW): battery charged from a wall box/public charging stations with an estimated charging time of 4 hours and 15 minutes.

The generous boot spaces offers 250 litre capacity and with the rear seats folded this increases to 923 litres. There’s also handy storage solutions to help further the convenience for driver and passengers including a foldable hook which attaches to the glove compartment to hang your bag from, side pockets in the front seating area, pen and glasses compartment in the glove box and more!
