Škoda introduces remote Electric car charging through Alexa

Drivers of Škoda’s all-electric Citigoe iV and Superb iV plug-in hybrid can now use Amazon Alexa voice assistants to start or stop charging remotely and check on the remaining range of their cars.

The new features are part of a raft of upgrades added to the Škoda Connect service, with iV owners now able to perform a range of actions to simplify the charging and management of their electric vehicle.

For the function to work, customers simply need to ensure their charging cable is connected and use the command “Alexa, ask Škoda, I want to start charging my car.” Similarly, the “Alexa, ask Škoda” command can be used to control all of the new features added to the Alexa skill.
