Advanced Technology of the Skoda Hybrid
Combining a hybrid drive motor and alternator into one unit, Skoda has achieved a consistent, reliable, and advanced piece of kit. The hybrid motor boosts the engine up to 20 bhp allowing for a reduction in fuel burn and less time at the petrol pump.
Take your foot off the accelerator, and the petrol engine will stop, while the hybrid motor seamlessly takes over and the car coasts for up to 40 seconds without using a drop of fuel. Hit the brake and the self-charging mode kicks in, ready for the next fuel-free drive.
Skoda Octavia Hybrid Space and Specification
Skoda’s well-thought-out design ensures that all space is used efficiently, and you’ll find that the luggage capacity and legroom are unrivalled in comparison to other models in its class.
The hybrid battery can be found under the drivers’ seat, freeing up space for an impressive 600-litre boot while your customers will travel in absolute comfort with the increased legroom in the rear.
Equipped with a long list of standard features, including drivers’ seat lumbar support and armrest, climatic air conditioning, leather multi-function steering wheel and smartphone link technology, the Octavia e-Tec SE will ensure you are comfortable and connected throughout the longest of shifts.
