2020 Skoda Octavia RS iV: Plug-in hybrid performer revealed

Joining Volkswagen's Golf GTE in the group's performance-oriented hybrid stable, the new 2020 Skoda Octavia RS iV has been unveiled today. Available in liftback sedan and wagon styles, the RS iV models will join the regular new Octavia line-up, which will include conventional petrol-powered RS models. The latter, in 180kW form, is the only performance option slated for Australia, with the local Volkswagen arm prioritising full-electric greenery over hybrid options.
