The Skoda Octavia PHEV Estate


The Skoda Octavia family car has been manufactured since 1996. The model is currently on its fourth generation. The Octavia has sold well since its introduction, with more than five million cars sold. The fourth generation Octavia was unveiled in Prague in November 2019. Deliveries commenced in 2020. The Skoda Octavia is also available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). PHEVs are perfect for individuals and families:

  • Keen to take a step towards lower emission and environment-friendly driving.
  • Need a vehicle for extensive and regular long-distance travelling.
  • Have limited access to private or public EV charging stations.
  • Do a number of short commutes (30 miles and below) on a regular basis.
  • Keen to save money.

It is a widely known fact, in that, the average distance of a trip in the UK is a mere 12 miles. An average vehicle in the UK will travel between 8k and 10k miles per annum i.e. less than 30 miles per day. The newest eco-friendly PHEVs on the market will average between 20 to 30 zero-emission electric miles on a fully-charged EV battery. In most plug-in electric cars the EV battery will be below 15 kWh in capacity.

The Skoda plug-in electric estate has a 13.0 kWh EV battery with a WLTP zero-emission electric range of 43 miles. Depending on driving style, weather condition and the services used in the EV, expect a real world range closer to 38 miles. However, that would be more than sufficient for most daily commutes using the EV battery i.e. driving emission-free and also saving money (the running cost per mile of an EV is far lower than a petrol or diesel car). Depending on the cost of electricity, the cost per mile for driving on electric can be as low as 3 pence per mile. Bottom-line driving on electric miles is both cost efficient and eco-friendly!

The Skoda plug-in electric car is practical and family-friendly, with amply space for short and long commutes. The electric vehicle (EV) is cheap to run on the zero-emission electric mode. You can lease the PHEV via e-zoomed at fantastic prices. Simply follow the link below to enquire.
