0

On Tuesday, Skoda Auto introduced its first electric SUV ENYAQ iV on the MEB modular car platform of Volkswagen Group. 

The ENYAQ iV offers rear- or all-wheel drive, along with a range perfectly suited for daily use, covering up to 510 km in the WLTP cycle, and brand-typical spaciousness. One special highlight is the exclusive ENYAQ iV Founders Edition, limited to 1,895 units and commemorating the 125th anniversary of the company’s success.

The Founders Edition and the ENYAQ RS iV are equipped with a Crystal Face, which includes a stunning, illuminated radiator grille, as standard. For the ENYAQ 80 iV and ENYAQ 80x iV, it is available as an option. The crystalline-look front of the ENYAQ iV is illuminated by 130 LEDs – a design highlight already seen in the ŠKODA VISION iV concept study. The Founders Edition is available in two engine/battery variants and two colors. It also comes with 21-inch alloys, sporty front, and rear aprons, and the ecoSuite Design Selection featuring sustainably tanned leather.

Now let’s take a look at the highlights of the brand-new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV:

The ENYAQ iV boasts an all-new drive concept, exploiting the possibilities that Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform has to offer. The MEB consists of what is known as the skateboard platform, in which the battery is incorporated into the floor to save space. Three battery sizes, five power outputs ranging from 109 to 225 kW, and rear- or all-wheel drive cater to many different requirements and uses. With ranges of up to 510 km in the WLTP cycle, the ENYAQ iV is an ideal everyday companion. Furthermore, it can tow trailers weighing up to 1,400 kg (8% gradient) or 1,200 kg (12% gradient).

EXTERIOR

The ENYAQ iV’s design language is emotive, powerful, and dynamic. The new SUV is characterized by perfect proportions and extraordinary spaciousness. It offers a similar amount of interior space as a ŠKODA KODIAQ, despite being shorter in length than a ŠKODA OCTAVIA.

As optional extras, the illuminated Crystal Face – which comes with an animated Coming/Leaving Home function – and full LED Matrix headlights adorn the striking front sporting the large ŠKODA grille. The full LED taillights include dynamic indicators and also have an animated Coming/Leaving Home function.

INTERIOR

New Design Selections replace the classic trim levels and set new standards for the interior. Each Design Selection, put together by ŠKODA material concept designers, provides a tasteful interior with an exceptional feel-good factor and features natural, sustainably processed, and recycled materials. A new, clearer structure of the choices available – ten themed packages as well as some individual options – makes it quick and easy to customize the vehicle to suit the owner’s taste.

CONNECTIVITY

At 13 inches, the ENYAQ iV’s central screen is larger than in any other ŠKODA. What’s more, the all-new SUV is always online and cleverly connected. Battery charging and the interior’s air conditioning can be conveniently controlled remotely via the ŠKODA Connect app.

SIMPLY CLEVER

ŠKODA has developed Simply Clever solutions specific to electric vehicles, such as a cleaner for the charging cable, a protective cap for the charging socket, and a compartment for the charging cable under the boot floor. The new centre console arranged over two levels provides plenty of space; a clever insert ensures that the false boot floor is neat and tidy. In the ENYAQ iV, the classic ŠKODA ice scraper is located inside the car – in its tailgate to be precise.

CHARGING

The MyŠKODA Powerpass ensures owners can easily and conveniently recharge their vehicles at most of the charging points in the European Union using just a single card. In addition, ŠKODA is also involved in building the Ionity quick-charging network throughout Europe. The brand offers three versions of the ŠKODA iV wall box for at-home charging. Using the fast-charging cable, the owners can recharge their ŠKODA ENYAQ iV at fast-charging stations too.
