2010 Skoda Octavia Green E Line Concept
We will see Skoda Octavia Green E Line concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Skoda’s first-ever electric-powered vehicle will demonstrate the company’s innovative potential and technological competence in this growing area.
The first fleet of test vehicles is planned for 2011 with the objective of obtaining additional information relevant to the further development of the electric drive. Mobility without emissions is the future. The Green E Line concept is based on the Skoda Octavia Combi. With its modular chassis design, this series-production car is the ideal option in terms of arranging the batteries, electronic control units and the electric engine with its constant power of 60 kW and max. power of 85 kW.
Available right after the start (as is typical of this type of drive), the maximum torque of 270 Nm gives the car enough power for sharp acceleration and a good amount of agility and responsiveness, which the driver will appreciate mainly in busy city traffic. It is accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just twelve seconds, and the car’s maximum speed is limited to 135 km/h.
The electricity is supplied by a modern lithium-ion battery. Located under the middle and rear parts of the floor and extending partly into the luggage compartment, the 26.5 kWh battery is made up of 180 lithium-ion cells (diameter 150 mm, length 650 mm) and weighs about 315 kilograms.
Interior is fitted with five comfortable seats. Smart dashboard indicators, the computer screen provides continuous information including instant output, power consumption, battery charge and the remaining range. The navigation display describes the energy flow, i.e., informs the driver that the electric engine is being supplied with electricity or, on the contrary, that it is generating electricity as the car decelerates or goes downhill.
The look of the Skoda Octavia Green E Line Concept conveys the environmental-friendliness of its electric drive.Pearl-white exterior colour and elegant chrome-trim on both the front and rear of the vehicle as well as on the wheels create an impressive contrast with the glossy black roof with integrated energy-generating photovoltaic panels.
