The new Skoda Octavia RS Combi e-TEC Driving Video
ŠKODA is continuing the tradition of its performance RS models in the fourth-generation OCTAVIA too. This iteration, however, is the first in which the Czech car manufacturer is offering three different drive systems: in addition to the OCTAVIA RS versions with either a petrol or a diesel engine, the OCTAVIA RS iV – the brand’s first RS plug-in hybrid – is now being launched. Both the 2.0 TSI OCTAVIA RS and the OCTAVIA RS iV have an output of 180 kW (245 PS). The 2.0 TDI produces 147 kW (200 PS) and is the only model in the RS range to be available with all-wheel drive on request. All three variants feature sporty bodywork detailing including RS-typical black touches. The interior, with its traditional and dynamic design, is also predominantly black.
The automotive industry is going through a massive transformation – and Audi is right in the middle of it. On the Spotlight Corporate & Business, Audi CEO Markus Duesmann, Head of Corporate Strategy Silja Pieh, Head of Digitalization John Newman, and Audi General Secretary Martin Primus describe how the strategy „Vorsprung 2030“ and its implementation in the future look like.
The airflow through the wheel arch trims helps Audi resolve the conflict of objectives between outstanding aerodynamics and sporty looks. For the first time, the brand with the Four Rings is bringing this innovative, patented solution to high-volume automobile production.
