The new mild-hybrid Octavia will be available with either a 110 PS, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol unit, or a 150 PS, .5-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol unit. This setup will vary depending up on the market.

The new mild-hybrid system on the Octavia features a belt-integrated starter generator which helps recover energy when the brake pedal is pressed and at the same time, it also charges the 48V lithium-ion battery setup on the car. Skoda claims that the hybrid setup provides up to 50 Nm of torque. As far as transmission options go, there is a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic setup, while the manual options have been given a miss on the mild-hybrid Octavia.

Skoda claims that the mild-hybrid Octavia delivers enhanced efficiency against the standard model with 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. Performance figures are yet to be revealed.

As far as India launch is concerned, there are no confirmed plans for the mild-hybrid Octavia to arrive in the country. The India-spec model will most-likely get a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine which delivers 190 PS of power. More options may be added in the later stage. If the India-spec Octavia gets the e-TEC mild-hybrid system, it will be the first executive sedan in the country to feature this technology.
