Most environmentally-friendly Skoda ever

23 June 2010

Škoda Fabia Greenline

 

The new Škoda Fabia Greenline II will become the most environmentally-friendly car ever to wear the famous Škoda badge which goes on sale on sale in the UK next week.

   

The second generation Greenline is powered by a new three-cylinder turbocharged 1.2 TDI CR 75bhp DPF common rail (high-pressure direct injection) engine which returns an impressive 83.1 mpg (combined cycle) and produces exceptionally low CO2 emissions of only 89g/km, which means the Fabia Greenline II is exempt from road tax.  

Priced at Ł13,740, the five door estate comes complete with Ł800 of extra standard equipment over the model which it replaces, including cruise control, ESP, stop-start function, tyre pressure monitor (TPM) and an alarm with tilt-sensor.

One of the biggest technological changes to boost fuel efficiency and reduce exhaust emissions is the introduction of the stop-start system.  The system operates automatically, turning the engine off when the driver stops the vehicle, engages neutral and releases the clutch.  The engine restarts when the driver has engaged the clutch.  This system can improve fuel consumption by up to 4.2 mpg on a combined cycle or 7.7mpg in city traffic. On a single 45 litre tank of fuel, the Greenline II delivers and impressive range of 932 miles (combined cycle), meaning London to Prague is achievable without the need to refuel.

Other technologies introduced on the Greenline II which improve fuel economy are energy recuperation; which uses the vehicles kinetic energy for battery recharging, a gear recommendation system, which helps the driver make optimum use of the engine’s potential, a lowered and aerodynamically-covered chassis and low-rolling resistance tyre.

Fabia Greenline II will also be available in hatchback from October 2010.
