All the details you were looking for
The ŠKODA OCTAVIA iV is all about safety without compromise. Besides the safety systems already described, the following features are available as standard or an option:
› Isofix and Top tether anchorage points to fasten a child seat to the second-row outboard seats. Isofix is also available for the front-passenger seat.
› Unlike cruise control, which maintains a set speed, the Speedlimiter allows the driver to travel at any speed up to, but not more than, the predefined value.
› ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or when braking on slippery surfaces.
› By increasing the braking pressure, the HBA braking assist helps drivers in situations in which emergency braking is necessary. This can lead to a significant reduction in the braking distance required.
› EBD automatically optimizes braking pressure and the overall braking balance and prevents overbraking of the rear wheels.
› MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels, which can occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface.
› The ASR ensures smooth starting and acceleration without the wheels spinning on slippery surfaces.
› EDL helps when accelerating or driving uphill with low traction under one of the driven wheels.
› TSA operates when the vehicle is equipped with an original towing device with its own control unit. The system works on the principle braking one or more wheels and simultaneously reducing engine torque as necessary. The TSA system intervenes and helps stabilize the car and the trailer.
› XDS+ helps the driver during sharp turns and ensures that the vehicle behaves neutrally during dynamic cornering. The control electronics essentially simulate the presence of a self-locking differential to improve traction and driving dynamics during turns. As a result, the vehicle will take bends much more assuredly and naturally than before.
› Tyre Pressure Monitoring TPM+ keeps the driver informed of the tyre pressure at all times.
› The optional Hill-Hold Control helps drivers to start uphill safely. The system activates itself on inclines of five degrees or more and ensures easy and safe uphill starting without the use of the handbrake. The system keeps the car from rolling backwards or stalling.
› Flashing brake lights reduce the risk of rear-end impact, especially when approaching traffic jams on highways or braking suddenly in front of an unexpected obstacle.
The ŠKODA OCTAVIA iV uses advanced plug-in hybrid technology, coupling the 1.4 TSI/110 kW conventional petrol engine with an 85 kW electric motor that offers both purely electric driving and a hybrid mode combining both engines. Together, they produce a total power output of 150 kW and have a maximum torque of 350 Nm.
A third part of the system comprises a 13 kWh Li-ion battery in the floor in front of the rear axle. Its gross capacity of 13 kWh corresponds to a net capacity of 10.4 kWh.
The OCTAVIA iV’s Li-ion battery can be recharged in three ways:
› Via alternating current (AC) – either from a regular outlet or via a wallbox and public charging station for faster charging.
› Via the internal combustion engine – you can recharge the battery or maintain its state of charge while driving. The battery’s required state of charge can be manually adjusted.
› Via brake energy recovery – some of the kinetic energy is recovered during braking through brake energy regeneration. It is then stored back in the battery.
The connector for charging the battery is concealed behind a flap in the wing on the driver’s side.
The OCTAVIA iV, with its standard-fit automatic 6-speed DSG, features a shift-by-wire system. The new shifting selector does not have a fixed mechanical connection to the DSG gearbox. Instead, shifting takes place purely electronically. This means that you can change gear with the elegant selector with the lightest of touches.
At 40 litres, the OCTAVIA iV’s petrol tank is 5 litres smaller than the tank in models fitted with an internal combustion engine.
