On his way from Italy to Scandinavia, the record-breaking driver will be making stops at public filling stations in Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, amongst others in his Škoda Citigo CNG. Next, the car will pass through the Czech capital, Prague, to the Škoda headquarters in Mladá Boleslav, and from there he will continue onto Poland through Berlin. On August 2, he wishes to then finish the record run through Denmark into the Swedish capital.
“The arrival at the Sony Center will be one of the highlights of the week-long trip,” said Plattner, who also added: “I want to prove that it is possible to drive economically not only under ideal conditions on an enclosed test circuit. Under certain conditions and even on winter roads, a Škoda can be driven with less than standard fuel consumption.”
In Bratislava, Slovakia, Škoda’s small car has been on sale since 2011, where so far 55,400 Citigos have been delivered to customers.
