ŠKODA ENYAQ iV still eligible for £2,500 Government grant

March 18, 2021

In light of the Government’s realignment of the Plug-in Car Grant (effective 18 March 2021), ŠKODA is highlighting that its new all-electric ENYAQ iV model remains eligible for the scheme.

Milton Keynes, 18 March 2021 - Under the new grant guidelines, buyers of electric vehicles with an On-The-Road (OTR) price of £35,000 and under will qualify for a grant of £2,500. 

With the new grant applied, the entry-level ENYAQ iV is available from just £31,585 OTR, making it one of the best value all-electric family cars on the market.

ŠKODA officially opened order books for the all-new ENYAQ iV, on 10 March 2021.

Based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB), the highly-awaited all-electric SUV range is offered with two battery size options and capable of returning a WLTP combined range of up to 333 miles on a single charge*.

The ENYAQ iV 60 Nav model delivers a WLTP combined range of 256 miles* and can be charged to 80% in just 35 minutes when fitted with the 100kW charging option. The model comes with a generous equipment list that includes 19-inch Proteus alloy wheels, an infotainment system with satellite navigation and 13-inch screen, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control and keyless go.

All models in the ENYAQ iV range also feature ambient interior lighting, multifunction leather steering wheel and Front Assist as standard.

The new ENYAQ iV introduces a new way for customers to perfectly tailor the car to their tastes and requirements. Instead of selecting from traditional trim levels, customers choose the battery size they need, select an interior design and then personalise their vehicle from a comprehensive range of equipment packs and individual options.

New ENYAQ iV charging options
All ENYAQ iV models have a minimum DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard. Customers can specify higher 100kW (for 62kWh battery) and 125kW (for 82kWh battery only) DC charge rates as options.

The ENYAQ iV offers customers three charging options. In addition to using a standard household 230V socket with 2.3 kW alternating current (AC), it can be charged at home overnight using a wallbox of up to 7.2kW. Depending on the battery size, the charging process with a 7.2kW wallbox takes approximately 9 hours 30 minutes for the 62 kWh and approximately 13 hours for the 82 kWh battery (both to 100% charge). As a third charging option, the vehicle can be connected to rapid DC charging points with a charging capacity of up to 125 kW. This allows the ENYAQ iV 80 to be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in as little as 38 minutes and 35 minutes for the ENYAQ iV 60 Nav.

Performance and range
The entry level 62kWh battery model is equipped with a 179PS (132kW) motor that drives the rear wheels through a single-speed transmission. It has a WLTP combined range of up to 256 miles on a single charge. The larger 82kWh model generates 204PS (150kW) and is capable of returning up to 333 miles on a single charge (WLTP)*.

Design and practicality
Measuring 4,649 millimetres long and 1,879 wide, the ENYAQ iV delivers the space and practicality customers have come to expect from ŠKODA’s award-winning SUV models. Thanks to its all-electric platform, ŠKODA’s design team has been able to completely reimagine the ENYAQ iV’s interior architecture. With the traction battery housed in the floor and a compact motor mounted beneath the boot floor, the ENYAQ iV has a cabin unburdened by the packaging compromises of a traditional internal combustion engine car. As a result, occupants can enjoy a spacious interior with a flat floor and a boot that can hold 585-litres of luggage. This can be extended to 1,710 litres with the rear seats folded.
