Škoda reveals prices and specifications for Enyaq iV all-electric SUV
Czech carmaker Škoda has announced prices and specifications for its all-new, all-electric Enyaq iV SUV, which arrives in the UK in the spring of 2021.
The Enyaq will be available with a choice of battery sizes (62kWh or 82kWh), in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive and as a number of variants. Prices will start at £33,450 (excluding the government’s Plug-in Car Grant).
Enyaq iV models fitted with the 62kWh battery have a 175BHP (132kW) motor that drives the rear wheels through a single-speed transmission and a WLTP range of up to 242 miles on a single charge. The larger 82kWh RWD model generates 200BHP (150kW) and is capable of returning up to 316 miles on a single charge.
The larger 82kWh RWD model generates 200BHP (150kW) and is capable of returning up to 316 miles on a single charge.
The base model is the Enyaq iV 60, with a range of equipment that includes 19-inch alloy wheels, an infotainment system with a 13-inch screen, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, keyless go, road sign recognition, ambient interior lighting, multifunction leather steering wheel and Front Assist as standard.
All 62kWh (60) models are equipped with an interior spec called Loft, which features fabric/artificial leather seat facings and brushed aluminium panels as standard. However, upgrades are on offer: for an additional £1,285, customers can select an interior design pack called Suite that adds leather trim and piano black panels, or opt for the Lounge interior design pack, which comes with light grey leather and mustard yellow stitching for an additional £1,115.
The Enyaq iV 80 (with prices starting at £38,950) has an 82kWh battery pack and additional equipment such as chrome detailing, front parking sensors, rear-view camera, heated two-spoke leather steering wheel (with paddles for setting the levels of regenerative braking), Drive Mode Selection and an infotainment system with navigation. Upgrades from the standard Loft to Suite or Lounge interior design packs are also available.
An Enyaq iV 80 Founders Edition (from £49,995) adds 125kW DC charging, 21-inch alloy wheels, illuminated front grille with LED Crystal face and Matrix LED headlights, plus a black leather interior design pack as standard.
All Enyaq iV models have a DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard, but customers can specify higher 100kW (for 62kWh battery) and 125kW (for 82kWh battery) DC charge rates as options.
Customers have three charging options. In addition to using a standard household 230V socket with 2.3kW alternating current (AC), the Enyaq can be charged overnight using a home wallbox of up to 7kW, with charging taking six to eight hours. Alternatively, the vehicle can be connected to rapid DC charging points with a charging capacity of up to 125 kW. This allows the Enyaq iV to be charged from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in just 38 minutes.
The driver can access relevant information via a 13-inch display and a head-up display with augmented reality as an optional extra. There’s also a permanent internet connection.
The Enyaq iV measures 4,648 millimetres long and 1,877 wide, while the boot has a capacity of 585 litres.
