La version hybride rechargeable prendra le nom de "Superb iV".

Un teaser publié plus tôt cette semaine par la marque tchèque a annoncé que la révélation de la Superb restylée aurait lieu au mois de mai (sans donner la date exacte) dans la capitale slovaque, Bratislava, lors d'un événement de hockey sur glace.

Aujourd'hui, Škoda a annoncé que la présentation de sa berline est prévue pour le 23 mai lors de la journée des quarts de finale. On ne sait pas grand-chose d'autre pour l'instant, le communiqué de presse se contentant de dire que la voiture a été "modernisée" et qu'elle aura un "profil beaucoup plus net". Nous aimerions savoir si Škoda montrera aussi le break. Nous pensons que la révélation ne concernera que la berline, et que le break sera présenté plus tard au Salon de Francfort.

La grande nouveauté réside sous la carrosserie de la Superb. En effet, elle embarquera un moteur électrique et sera la toute première voiture de série électrifiée de Škoda. Nous nous attendons à ce que cette Superb restylée embarque la même motorisation que la Volkswagen Passat GTE, qui embarque un moteur essence 1,4 litre turbocompressé et un moteur électrique. Ce bloc délivre un total de 215 ch, ce qui devrait être plus que suffisant.

La Passat GTE a reçu une plus grande batterie (de 9,9 kWh à 13 kWh) qui permet d'offrir une autonomie de 55 kilomètres selon le cycle WLTP. Il devrait en être de même avec la version hybride rechargeable de la Superb. Une rumeur datant de 2016 évoquait l'arrivée d'une Superb RS, mais depuis, nous n'avons aucune information à ce sujet. Au lieu de cela, la marque a diversifié son portefeuille RS avec l'ajout du Kodiaq RS et son moteur diesel de 245 ch.

› For the first time ever, a new ŠKODA model celebrates its world premiere at the Ice Hockey World Championship: ŠKODA presents its comprehensively revised flagship SUPERB
› ŠKODA AUTO continues to extend its world record for the longest sponsorship of a world championship at the IIHF tournament in Bratislava and Košice

Mladá Boleslav, 10 May 2019 – For the 27th time in a row, ŠKODA AUTO will be the official main sponsor of the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, which is held this year from 10 to 26 May in Bratislava and Košice. The brand is extending its world record for the longest sponsorship of a world championship. As the official main sponsor of the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship 2019 in Slovakia, ŠKODA is using the stage for a world premiere for the first time: The Czech automaker will be presenting the comprehensively revised ŠKODA SUPERB, the brand’s flagship, on the day of the quarter-finals, 23 May. As the official mobility partner, ŠKODA will be providing the organisers with 50 vehicles, this time mainly the SUV models KODIAQ and KAROQ.

Alain Favey, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Sales and Marketing, explains: “ŠKODA is combining tradition with the future in an extraordinary way at this year’s IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship. We have made history with our many years of successful sponsorship. The fact that we are now combining our World Championship appearance with the world premiere of a new model for the first time underscores the importance of this event for our brand.”

Eight years after the Ice Hockey World Championship in Slovakia, the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) is returning to this nation of ice hockey fans. The world’s top 16 national teams will be competing from 10 to 26 May. The venues are the Slovnaft Aréna in the capital, Bratislava, and the Steel Aréna in Košice.

ŠKODA will be under the spotlight at each of the 64 games. For example, the car manufacturer’s logo will be featured on the boards and the ice at the arenas. In addition, the Czech brand is placing three model highlights next to the rink – the city SUV ŠKODA KAMIQ, the new compact model ŠKODA SCALA and the high-performance SUV KODIAQ RS. This way, ŠKODA will reach a vast audience, as the global television and online broadcasts of the Ice Hockey World Championship will be watched by more than one billion hockey fans this year.

On May 23, the quarter-final matchday, ŠKODA will be presenting the world premiere of the modernised SUPERB with a much sharper profile. As the flagship of the ŠKODA model range, the SUPERB, whose history dates back to the 1930s, offers the brand’s latest innovations in design, technology and functionality.
ŠKODA is the best-selling car brand in the host country Slovakia. In 2018, the manufacturer delivered 21,900 vehicles to customers in the region, with the most popular models being the FABIA, OCTAVIA and RAPID.

Sponsor and mobility partner for more than a quarter of a century
ŠKODA has been supporting the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship as a mobility partner since 1992. The automaker has been the official main sponsor since 1993. This is the longest main sponsorship in the history of world sports championships – officially recognised as a Guinness World Record. The brand celebrated the 25th anniversary of this partnership in 2017.

Each year, ŠKODA provides the organisers with an attractive and reliable fleet of vehicles. This year the fleet consists of 50 ŠKODA vehicles, especially the popular SUV models KODIAQ and KAROQ.
