ŠKODA Enyaq iV revealed

Available with rear or all-wheel drive and multiple battery and all-electric drivetrain options including a long range variant with up to 510km (WLTP) running, the Enyaq iV represents the next generation of Škoda vehicles and is the first to share the Volkswagen family’s advanced modular electric drive platform.

The all-electric SUV is the Czech car manufacturer’s first production model to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform.

the new SUV features an all-new interior concept offering design selections instead of classic trim levels and a brand-new structure of the options available. 

As the first Škoda vehicle to leverage Volkswagens dedicated MEB electric vehicle platform, the Enyaq iV boasts an all-new drive concept, exploiting the possibilities that the advanced modular 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). 

All that electric technology is packaged within the Enyaq iV’s emotive and dynamic exterior styling. The new SUV is characterised by perfect proportions and extraordinary spaciousness. It offers a similar amount of interior space as a Škoda Kodiac, 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 tail lights include dynamic indicators and also have an animated Coming/Leaving Home function. New assistance systems include Travel Assist, which now has even more functions, as well as remote-controlled and trained parking. 

Inside, new design selections replace the classic trim levels and set new standards for the interior. Each design selection, put together by 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 customise the vehicle to suit the owner’s taste. 

At 13 inches, the Enyaq iV’s central screen is larger than in any other Škoda

and 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. Škoda has developed their signature “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.
