SKODA HAS TODAY announced plans to enter the all-new Skoda Superb in this month's Global Green Car Challenge.

The Skoda team will cover the 3000km trek down the centre of Australia in the 2.0 litre TDI version of the Superb, paired with parent company Volkswagen's six-speed DSG transmission.

Returning a fuel economy of 5.4 l/100km and releasing 182g/km of CO2, the Superb's 2.0 litre TDI engine produces 125kW and 350Nm of torque between 1750 and 2500rpm.

The team is unlikely to attempt too many 0-100km/h sprints in the eco-minded Global Green Car Challenge, but Skoda claims the run can be covered in 8.8 seconds.

Held from the 24th to the 31st of October, the Global Green Challenge (formerly the World Solar Challenge) sees manufacturers, universities and private organisations from around the world facing off to prove - and improve - their latest advancements in alternative fuel and fuel-saving technologies.

Holden announced plans early last month to take on the challenge with a new 3.0 litre SIDI (Spark Ignition Direct Injection) 2010 Holden Commodore Sportwagon.

TMR drove the full Superb range at its launch in June, followed by a comprehensive review of the Superb 1.8 TSI Elegance in September.
