Skoda plans second-gen Citigo image

The Czech based automaker Skoda is looking towards the development of a second generation Citigo.

It may be known as the Skoda Citigo, the Seat Mii or the Volkswagen Up! but this is basically the same car, wearing different badges on its body. It made quite a fuzz when it was introduced a few years back and since it turned out to be one successful ride, the car manufacturer is now getting ready to start developing the second generation. The announcement hasn’t been made official at this time but it is actually part of a report published by AutoBild.

According to our source, the model in question is viewed as a key car since it managed to bring a lot of customers to the brand. The Citigo is said to get revised styling when the Mk2 will roll off and chances are it won’t be riding on a completely new platform. The model should get a more distinctive design, a treatment which will bring it closer to the Toyota Aygo and the similar models made by Peugeot and Citroen, and it should be introduced sometimes in 2018.

The most interesting fact of the Skoda Citigo 2 is that the company is planning an electric version too, which should get a total driving range of up to 150 km (92 miles) and 200 km (124 miles). This should start from approximately 15,000 euros, which will make it way cheaper than the VW e-Up!. Additional details on the second-gen Skoda Citigo are limited at this time.
