Even if you were to beg your local dealer, you’ll struggle to buy Skoda’s new Citigo-e iV. Kiss them, bake them a cake, burst into tears or stamp your feet, but none of those tactics will get you to the front of the queue. And that’s for one simple reason – it’s sold out. The keen price of the pure electric Citigo-e, with its 36.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack and driving range of 170 miles, has seen buyers queueing up to buy one and as a result, the first tranche of stock sold out very quickly indeed. You might be thinking, why are we testing a car that isn’t available? The reason is that it will be, when fresh stock arrives later this year. But you’ll need to be quick, as it’s likely the same will happen again.
