The fully electric SKODA ENYAQ iV made its debut on 1st September 2020…
Live from Prague with a keen global audience waiting, SKODA unveiled their first fully electric SUV which is SKODA’s first production model based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB). Let’s take a look at the main features below...
Battery, Range & Charging
The electric SUV will be available in the UK with two battery sizes; 62kWh and 82kWh. The entry level battery (62kWH) will offer up to 242 miles based on WLTP with 177bhp. The larger battery 82kWh will offer up to an impressive 316 miles on a single charge (WLTP) with 201bhp covering 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds.
There are three charging options for the ENYAQ iV; standard household charging (AC), wallbox charger and DC rapid charging. The rapid charging can charge the battery from 10% to 80% in just 38 minutes. There are plenty of electric vehicle apps available to find charging points near you such as Zap-Map.
Space & Interior
When comparing the MEB-based electric SUV to a standard combustion engine (petrol/diesel), you’ll notice the height difference. The batteries of the MEB are installed in the vehicle floor and overall the electrical parts take up less room so instantly there’s a lot more space on the interior. As well as this, the overhang from the front and rear is reduced. In terms of length and width, the ENYAQ iV measure 4,648 millimetres long (around 50mm shorter than the Kodiaq) and 1,877 wide.
Inside, the ENYAQ iV offers all passengers plenty of legroom still keeping with a generous boot size of 585 litres!
The specification even on the entry-level trim is very impressive. The entry level trim also known as the ENYAQ iV 60 features 19-inch Proteus alloy wheels, an infotainment system featuring a 13-inch screen, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control and keyless go.
The larger battery pack trim is also referred to as the ENYAQ iV 80 and includes chrome detailing, front parking sensors, rear-view camera, heated two-spoke leather steering wheel and an infotainment system with navigation.
All models as standard also feature road sign recognition, ambient interior lighting, multi-function leather steering wheel and Front Assist as standard.
UK Release Date & Pricing
The SKODA ENYAQ iV will be open for orders in the UK late 2020, with first deliveries arriving in Spring 2021. Prices will start from £33,450 (excluding UK Plug-in Car Grant).
