I’m interested in the Skoda Superb iV Sportline Plus PHEV (estate and hatch) or possibly even the Octavia iV PHEV, but they don’t seem to be on Skoda.ie although they do appear on Skoda.co.uk… I would have thought they would be available with the demand for electric and more and more companies insisting their fleets are electrified to some degree because of emissions?

The issue is availability from the factory, I'm afraid. So as not to raise expectations, Skoda Ireland took the decision to remove the cars from the website. We got this response when asking about the situation:
"Semiconductors are still a challenge. As the iV models are semiconductor heavy we are finding it challenging securing production at present in particular for these versions. As a result, orders may get delayed and lead times uncertain. "

Thanks for the reply and for clarifying; has Skoda given any indication as to when these models will be available to order again?
I spoke to a retailer whilst awaiting your reply and he told me these cars were not available in Ireland due to there being low demand for them and because they are too expensive since the grant was removed...

No indication from Skoda as to when the supply situation will improve, unfortunately.
