The Czech based automaker Skoda has recently announced that the Octavia Green E-Line electric vehicle won’t hit the production line.
According to the car manufacturer, the Skoda Octavia Green E-Line will be the company’s attempt to gain experience and this model, along with the already announced urban vehicle 2014 E-Citigo (electric) will help the VW sub-brand to develop future “green” models. Even if Skoda has made ten prototypes of the Octavia Green E-Line, and made us think that this is the future of the Octavia, the model won’t hit the production line but it will most likely underpin some future models with its technology.
Skoda says that the Octavia Green Line EV is using a lithium-ion battery which will help its electric motor generate a total output if 115 horsepower, with 81 horsepower available continuously, and it will have a peak torque of 270 Nm. The Skoda Octavia Green Line can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 12 seconds and according to its manufacturer, the top speed is 135 km/h. The maximum range offered by the Octavia Green Line is 150 km on a single charge. An interesting feature on this model is that up to 40 km/h, the sound generator produces an internal combustion sound in order to warn pedestrians.
