Exterior highlights: powerful appearance, spacious and the illuminated Crystal Face
› ŠKODA grille now sits further forward and wheels measure 18 to 21 inches › Crystalline effects characterise full LED Matrix headlights, as well as full LED tail lights › Generous interior, a boot capacity of 585 l and a Founders Edition limited to 1,895 units
Mladá Boleslav, 29 March 2021 – Powerful, dynamic and emotive: the new ENYAQ iV is immediately identifiable as a true ŠKODA SUV, with its distinctive ŠKODA grille, sculptural lines and balanced proportions, which allow for the brand-typical extraordinarily spacious interior. The SUV’s innovative illuminated Crystal Face is a highlight. The rugged character of the brand’s first all-electric SUV is emphasised by large 18- to 21-inch wheels.
The new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is the Czech car manufacturer’s first production vehicle based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. At 4,649 mm long, 1,879 mm wide and 1,616 mm tall, this SUV offers an extraordinary amount of space. A wheelbase of 2,765 mm and the absence of a transmission tunnel, due to the car’s concept, result in ample kneeroom for rear passengers and a boot capacity of 585 l.
Large wheels measuring 18 to 21 inches lend the car a rugged look
The ENYAQ iV continues the emotive ŠKODA SUV design language; the model’s athletic appearance is accentuated by large wheels with a diameter of 18 to 21 inches. The ENYAQ iV 50 features 18-inch steel wheels with Andromeda trims, while the other models (from the ENYAQ iV 60 upwards) are fitted with alloy wheels measuring at least 19 inches.
Optional Crystal Face welcomes ENYAQ iV drivers with 131 LEDs
The ŠKODA grille, which is upright and sits further forward, adds a unique touch to the electric SUV. It comes in matte black and bears a chrome surround. The new Crystal Face, available as an option from the ENYAQ iV 80 upwards, is a real highlight. This design feature – 131 LEDs light up the vertical ribs and a horizontal strip illuminates the grille – was inspired by the ŠKODA VISION iV concept car. The LED modules of the full LED Matrix headlights for low beam and high beam, as well as the daytime running lights, create a welcoming display. The optional full LED tail lights with a crystalline, illuminated section and dynamic indicators also feature an animated Coming/Leaving Home function with three configurations. As standard, the ENYAQ iV comes with LED tail lights without additionally illuminated sections and headlights with LED modules for low beam, high beam and the daytime running lights.
The side view of the ENYAQ iV is shaped by an elongated roofline that slopes gently towards the rear and merges with the matt black roof spoiler. Like the window frames, the roof rails are available in a black or chrome finish. The ‘ŠKODA’ block lettering takes centre stage on the optionally electric tailgate, while the bumper with a grey diffuser completes the lower section of the rear. The range of paint finishes includes two standard and seven metallic colours. A panoramic sliding roof is also available as an option.
Founders Edition as a tribute to the year the company was founded in 1895
ŠKODA has designed an exclusive Founders Edition of the ENYAQ iV for its market launch in spring 2021. The comprehensively equipped series, limited to 1,895 vehicles, is a tribute to the company’s roots, when Václav Laurin and Václav Klement founded it in 1895. Each special edition will include a plaque – made by the Czech crystal manufacturer Preciosa – which appears on the multifunctional leather steering wheel and displays the model’s number. This unique edition features the Crystal Face as standard and is available for the ENYAQ iV 60 and ENYAQ iV 80 models. The front apron and rear bumper have a sporty design, while the rear diffuser, windscreen frames, roof rails and ŠKODA grille surround all come in a gloss black finish. The front wings display the Founders Edition badges.
Exclusive copper colour accents
There is a choice of two colours for the Founders Edition. With the metallic Arctic Silver paintwork option, the tailgate lettering is black and the burnished 21-inch Aquarius alloy wheels come in a black metallic finish. The model in pearl-effect Black Magic displays the ŠKODA lettering in an exclusive shade of copper, and the black alloy wheels have contrasting visual touches. Inside, the limited edition features the Design Selection ‘ecoSuite’ with Piano Black decorative strips and seats upholstered in cognac-coloured leather (which is tanned in an environmentally friendly manner using olive leaf extracts). Black leather upholstery is available as an alternative.
