It's common to see cars delisted because they are unsalable, but have you heard about some models that are delisted because they sell so well? Recently, according to foreign media reports, in the UK, Skoda's mini car citigo-e IV was temporarily delisted due to its out of stock. As the first all electric vehicle of Skoda brand, citigo-e IV officially appeared in May 2019 and was put into production in late November 2019. The model only appeared in the local dealership in the UK in late January 2020, but all 400 vehicles allocated to the UK market in mid March have been sold out. It is clear that Skoda underestimated the UK market's enthusiasm for this all electric mini car. However, due to the spread of new coronavirus pneumonia in the world, the Bratislava factory which produces citigo-e IV in mass production is currently in a state of shutdown, which also causes Skoda to be unable to deal with the out of stock of citigo-e IV in the UK in a timely manner. As a result, Skoda decided to temporarily withdraw citigo-e IV from the UK market and continue to supply the UK market once the Bratislava plant resumes production. Interestingly, e-up is produced on the same platform and in the same line with citigo-e IV! MII electric can still be purchased locally in the UK, but VW also issued an early warning before that, in the first three months of 2020, e-up! 20000 orders have been received, and there may be no goods available in the future. Skoda citigo-e The IV is equipped with a 36.8kwh (32.2kwh) battery pack, which is installed in the center of the chassis. Under wltp condition, the endurance mileage can reach 265km, and when 40kW is used for quick charging, it can be charged from zero to 80% in an hour. The maximum power of the motor on the vehicle is 61kw (83ps), with 212n ยท m peak torque, 0-100km / h acceleration time of 12.3s, and the maximum speed of 130km / h /h.
