Simply Clever features: Practical charging-cable ideas

› Cable compartment under the boot floor, cable cleaner and charging socket protector
› Plenty of storage space now thanks to two shelves in the redesigned centre console
› New space on the inside of the tailgate for the classic ŠKODA ice scraper

Mladá Boleslav, 1 September 2020 – When it comes to all-electric vehicles, different questions arise than for cars with a combustion engine. Where do I store the charging cable? And how do I keep my hands clean when handling the cable? ŠKODA has found suitable Simply Clever answers to these questions too. The charging cable can be easily cleaned with a cable cleaner after use, and there is a protective cap for the charging socket. Afterwards, the cable can be stowed in a compartment under the boot floor. The car also comes with true Simply Clever classics such as the umbrella in the driver’s door and the ice scraper with a tyre tread depth gauge. In the ENYAQ iV, this is now found on the inside of the tailgate rather than the fuel filler flap.


Due to its concept, the ENYAQ iV does not have a transmission tunnel as is found in vehicles with a combustion engine. ŠKODA designers have used this space to their advantage for a new interior concept that includes clever new storage options. In addition to the 6.2-litre Jumbo Box under the centre armrest, a second storage compartment under the centre console – which is designed like a bridge – offers a further 11.4 l of storage space. ŠKODA has also developed a new Simply Clever feature for the compartment under the adjustable false boot floor: an insert divided into various compartments ensures that items stored there do not slide around during the journey. In the large boot’s main compartment, solutions such as the SigmaQuick boot nets keep things neat and tidy, with the nets being particularly easy to open.
