Mladá Boleslav, 23 May 2019 – ŠKODA AUTO premieres: This is the first occasion the Czech
car manufacturer has used its long-term sponsorship of the IIHF Ice Hockey World
Championship to stage a vehicle presentation. On the day of the quarter-finals, ŠKODA
presented its new e-mobility sub-brand iV in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava. The
manufacturer also presented the CITIGOe iV and the SUPERB iV, the first two electrified
series models in the company’s history. The brand has officially entered the era of
electromobility. In addition, ŠKODA took the opportunity at the sporting event to present its
revised flagship SUPERB and SUPERB SCOUT to the public for the first time.
With the e-mobility sub-brand iV, the Czech manufacturer has begun a new chapter in its rich 124-
year history. In addition to forming an electric product family, ŠKODA iV also includes a holistic,
networked ecosystem to make e-mobility as simple and convenient as possible for ŠKODA
customers. The all-electric ŠKODA CITIGOe iV and the new ŠKODA SUPERB iV with plug-in
hybrid drive are the manufacturer’s first models in the era of e-mobility. The new ŠKODA SUPERB
SCOUT, which also made its debut in Bratislava, extends the successful SUPERB family with
visual and technological enhancements.
