ŠKODA ENYAQ iV: Emotive, efficient and electrifying

September 1, 2020
By launching its brand-new ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA is taking the next step in the implementation of its E-Mobility strategy.

Mladá Boleslav, 1 September 2020 – 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 ŠKODA ENYAQ iV offers rear- or all-wheel drive, along with a range that is perfectly suitable for everyday use, covering up to 310 miles* in the WLTP cycle, and brand-typical spaciousness. ŠKODA is continuing to develop its emotive design language - to this end, the new SUV features an all-new interior concept offering Design Selections instead of classic trim levels and a brand-new structure of options available to customers. One particular highlight is the exclusive ENYAQ iV Founders Edition, which is limited to 1,895 units globally and is commemorating the company’s anniversary celebrating 125 years of success.

Thomas Schäfer, ŠKODA AUTO CEO, said: “The launch of the ENYAQ iV sees the start of a new era for ŠKODA. This is our first all-electric car to be based on the MEB platform. By launching this model, we are making E-Mobility Simply Clever – with long ranges, quick charging, ease of operation and affordable prices. The ENYAQ iV is made in ŠKODA’s heartland, Mladá Boleslav, making our main plant the only production facility for MEB-based vehicles in Europe outside Germany. This is a great testament to ŠKODA’s expertise and I would like to thank the entire team that got the ENYAQ iV rolling. It’s a great car and I’m really proud of the team.”

Founders Edition complete with illuminated radiator grille and 21-inch alloys

The Founders Edition and the ENYAQ vRS iV that follows next year, are equipped with a Crystal Face, which includes a stunning, illuminated radiator grille, as standard. For the ENYAQ 80 iV and ENYAQ 80x iV (x denoting the all-wheel drive derivative), it is available as an option. The crystalline-look front of the ENYAQ iV is illuminated by 130 LEDs – a design highlight already seen in the ŠKODA Vision iV concept study. The Founders Edition is available in the UK in one 82-kWh battery size. It also comes with 21-inch alloys, sporty front and rear aprons and the Suite Design Pack featuring sustainable black leather.

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. Two battery sizes, four power outputs ranging from 132 to 225 kW and rear- or all wheel drive cater to many different requirements and uses. With ranges of up to 310 miles* 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, which now has even more functions, as well as remote-controlled and trained parking.

› Exterior: The ENYAQ iV’s design language is emotive, powerful and dynamic. The new SUV is characterised by perfect proportions and extraordinary spaciousness. It offers a 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 striking 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 and set new standards for the interior. Each Design Selection, put together by ŠKODA 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.

› Connectivity: At 13 inches, the ENYAQ iV’s central screen is larger than in any other ŠKODA model. What’s more, 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.

› 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. 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.
