ŠKODA launches its brand-new all-electric ENYAQ iV.
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 exclusive ENYAQ iV Founders Edition will be delivered in spring 2021.
Highlights of the brand-new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV at a glance:
Electric powertrain: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).
Safety: New assistance systems include Travel Assist as well as remote-controlled and trained parking.
Exterior: The ENYAQ iV’s design is characterised by 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 front sporting the large ŠKODA grille. The full LED tail lights include dynamic indicators and also have an animated Coming/Leaving Home function.
Interior: New Design Selections replace the classic trim levels. Each design selection, put together by ŠKODA material concept designers, features natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials.
Connectivity: At 13 inches, the ENYAQ iV’s central screen is larger than in any other ŠKODA. Battery charging and the interior’s air conditioning can be 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. 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.
