Skoda unveiled its first full-electric car, a version of its Citigo minicar.
The EV is badged Citigo-e iV and has a range of 250 km (165 miles) from its 37 kilowatt-hour battery, as measured on Europe's WLTP test cycle.
The Citigo-e has an 81-hp electric motor and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph (62mph) in 12.5 seconds. Top speed is 130 kph (81mph).
The car is available with a CCS (Combined Charging System) cable that when plugged into a 40 kW fast charger will replenish the battery to 80 percent of charge in one hour, Skoda said.
A body colored front grille differentiates the five-door car from the gasoline-powered versions. Production will start in the second half of the year Skoda said without being specific. The Citigo-e will be built at VW's plant in Bratislava, Slovakia, where the similar VW E-Up electric minicar is produced.
The Citigo-e will start around 17,000 euros, Autocar magazine reported. Skoda didn't give an official price.
Skoda has promised to launch more than 10 electrified cars by the end of 2022, including battery-electric, plug-in hybrid and mild-hybrid models. The brand's goal is for quarter of all its sales by 2025 to be electrified.
The Citigo-e is the first of five full-electric cars Skoda plans to launch by 2025.
The second will be the production version of the Vision iV crossover concept, shown at the Geneva auto show this year, which Skoda will build on the VW Group's new MEB electric platform at its plant in Mlada Boleslav.
Superb plug-in hybrid
Separately, Skoda showed off its first plug-in hybrid, which will form part of the facelifted Superb midsize range when it goes on sale early next year.
