The new Skoda Citigo-e iV was introduced only a few months ago and already, Skoda has temporarily removed the car from sale here in the UK. The decision comes following high demand for the model, which is Skoda’s first fully electric car.

Autocar reported today that around 400 units were allocated to the UK back in January and by the middle of March this year, all of them were sold.

“We had lofty expectations for the car and customer demand was exceptionally high. As a result, it sold out quicker than expected”


Volkswagen recently refreshed the e-up with more range and this has remained on sale, as has the Seat Mii Electric, all three cars share the same platform.

Skoda has said the car will return when the company starts car production again, after the coronavirus pandemic.
