The future Skoda Superb and Kodiaq, tested in extreme conditions at the Arctic Circle

The Czechs at Skoda have today released some new photos of the upcoming next-generation Superb and Kodiaq models, with the cars captured during testing in extreme conditions. The Mlada Boleslav-headquartered manufacturer took its two new models to the Arctic Circle to put them to work in temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees.

Both the Kodiaq SUV, which is the largest in the East European manufacturer’s range, and the Superb mid-range model are set to receive a new generation of models this year. Recently, Skoda officials published several teaser images of the upcoming models on social media, but now we can see them better, even during real tests. Both new models are set to launch this fall, respectively Engine1.

Skoda took its two new models deep into the Arctic Circle to test their stability and level of comfort in extreme conditions. The Czechs also wanted to evaluate the reliability of the two new generation models over long distances. According to Skoda management, every element of the two cars was put to the test in these tests, from the engine and body to the chassis and electrical system.

The batteries of the PHEV versions could be charged at minus 30 degrees

However, the Czech manufacturer also wanted to do an important test for the two new models during these sessions at the Arctic Circle. Specifically, Skoda officials wanted to check the charging sockets of the versions with hybrid PHEV engines. According to the information provided previously, these sockets have been designed in such a way that they work without any problems even in extreme temperatures, down to minus 30 degrees.

Things seem to have worked flawlessly for the two new-generation models, however, with Skoda officials satisfied with the test results. So, all we have to do is wait for the autumn release!
