Hi-tech and Simply Clever
Partly thanks to the MEB platform it’s built on, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is an exceptionally advanced car in technical terms that offers a wealth of safety features, state-of-the-art assistance systems and lots of connectivity. But it has not turned its back on a traditional strength of ŠKODA cars, the much-loved Simply Clever solutions.
These include the popular umbrella in the driver’s door, or the traditional ice scraper, which in the ENYAQ iV is not found beneath the fuel tank cap (the ENYAQ iV doesn’t have one!) but in the tailgate. In addition, there is a space for the charging cable under the boot floor. There is even a cleaner for the charging cable so users don’t get dirty.
The boot also has a false floor, so small items are kept tightly in place and won’t move around. Also available is an easy-to-use net solution that ensures larger items in the boot are properly secured and safe. The MEB platform design has allowed room for two large storage compartments. The 6.2 litre Jumbo Box under the centre armrest can hold lots of essential items, and there’s another 11.4 litres of storage space under the centre console.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV has a lot of safety features, including emergency braking in the presence of oncoming cars when turning left, warnings about possible collisions with cyclists or cars when opening a door, active assistance for avoiding obstacles, and nine airbags.
There are also other state-of-the-art assistance systems, including a trained parking assistance system for learnt routes. That can be controlled from the ŠKODA Connect app, which puts a bunch of new functions and car control options in your mobile phone, including charging control. The ENYAQ iV is always online. Its infotainment system can be controlled via the thirteen-inch central screen or with the help of Laura, the digital voice assistant, who understands fifteen languages and can even process fluently spoken sentences in six of them.
The Virtual Cockpit beneath the steering wheel has a 5.3 inch display and can be complemented with an innovative head-up display. The head-up display is divided into two sections: the lower one just above the dashboard displays the standard information like current speed or detected traffic signs. Above that there is a larger augmented reality projection zone that displays navigational instructions, for example, in clear view of the driver.
