A couple of months after opening the order books for the second-generation Kodiaq in the United Kingdom, Skoda has expanded the offering with the plug-in hybrid derivative, which adds the iV suffix.
The all-new Skoda Kodiaq iV combines a 1.5L four-banger with a three-phase electric motor. The latter generates 114 hp (116 ps/85 kW) and 243 pound-foot (330 Nm) of torque, and the former pushes out 148 hp (150 ps/110 kW), and you're looking at a peak of 201 hp (204 ps/150 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) in Sport. Other driving modes include the Hybrid and E-Mode.

Supplying the juice to the motor is a 25.7 kWh (19.7 kWh net) battery pack mounted beneath the rear seats. Skoda says the model can be driven exclusively in the all-quiet mode for up to 75 miles (121 km) in the five-seater SE configuration. The battery can sip electrons at up to 50 kW, meaning that a recharge from 10 to 80 percent takes around 26 minutes. You'll need to plug in it for two and a half hours for a maximum charge at 11 kW.

Skoda offers the new Kodiaq iV in two trim levels in the United Kingdom. The lineup kicks off from £41,935 (equaling $53,340) for the SE grade, which comes with 18-inch Mazeno alloys, LED headlamps and taillights, push-button start, heated front seats, a 13-inch main display, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, and three-zone climate control. The safety bundle includes the door exit warning part of the blind spot detection system, front cross traffic assist, front assist with autonomous braking, etc.

Picking up the superior SE L variant of the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq iV requires spending at least £44,635 ($56,775) in the United Kingdom. This better-equipped grade features all of the above and then some. For instance, it has LED Matrix adaptive headlights with a cornering function, keyless entry, an electrically operated tailgate, black artificial and real leather upholstery with a perforated design, electric adjustment, and a memory function for the driver's seat, among others.

For the regular Skoda Kodiaq SE, UK customers have to pay at least £36,645 ($46,610), and the non-electrified SE L starts at £40,205 ($51,140). In this case, the engine family comprises two gasoline and two diesel units. They're rated at 148 hp (150 ps/110 kW) and 201 hp (204 ps/150 kW) for the gasoline burners, and the 2.0L TDI comes in two outputs, making 148 hp (150 ps/110 kW) and 190 hp (193 ps/142 kW).

The second-generation Skoda Kodiaq debuted last fall and entered production at the brand's Kvasiny factory in the Czech Republic earlier this year. It builds on the VW Group's MQB Evo platform, sharing numerous components with the latest Volkswagen Tiguan, as well as other similarly-sized vehicles made under the Group's umbrella.
