Mladá Boleslav, 29 March 2021 – Efficient, emotive and electrifying – these attributes neatly sum up the ENYAQ iV. In launching its first all-electric SUV, the Czech car manufacturer has taken the biggest step yet in its electromobility strategy. The new ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA production model to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. It is built at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the only MEB-based model in Europe to be manufactured outside of Germany. ŠKODA’s new flagship boasts generous amounts of space as is typical of the brand, and – thanks to its emotive design language – its appearance is electrifying too. Inside, new Design Selections replace the classic trim levels, while a clear and new structure of the options available means the car can be configured with just a few clicks. The ENYAQ iV comes with rear- or all-wheel drive, and there are five power levels and three battery sizes to choose from. The range of more than 520 km* in the WLTP cycle is perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. The car will be launched in the spring of 2021.

„The ENYAQ iV is the hallmark of a new era at ŠKODA. It is our first production model based on Volkswagen Group’s modular electric car platform and cleverly unites sustainability with our brand-typical qualities – generous amounts of space and an emotive design. We manufacture this model at our main plant in Mladá Boleslav, at the heart of ŠKODA – which means it’s the Group’s only MEB-based vehicle in Europe to be built outside of Germany. This is a great testament to our high level of engineering expertise and highlights the great degree of trust Volkswagen Group has in our workforce.“

Thomas Schäfer, ŠKODA AUTO CEO

Wide range of powertrain variants with three battery sizes and five power levels

The new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV fully exploits the technical possibilities and flexibility that the MEB modular electric car platform has to offer. The battery – which is fitted in the floor – is available in three sizes, and one or two electric motors provide a power output between 109 kW and 220 kW. Depending on the model, power is transmitted to the rear or all four wheels, and the range is more than 520 km* in the WLTP cycle. The electric SUV suits various needs from a spacious and agile city car for families to a vehicle ideal for those who travel long distances. Equipped with the right, optional tow bar, the all-electric SUV can even tow trailers weighing up to 1,400 kg.

Plenty of space, emotive design and Crystal Face highlight

The ENYAQ iV’s design is characterised by balanced proportions – it is emotive, powerful and dynamic. The new SUV has an extremely spacious interior. The capacity of the boot is 585 l. The optional Crystal Face is, quite literally, the highlight: the vertical ribs of the striking ŠKODA grille are illuminated by 131 LEDs, while a horizontal light strip rounds off the car’s stunning look. Together with the daytime running lights and the LED modules of the full LED Matrix headlights for low beam and high beam, the lit-up grille creates a welcoming display. Large wheels (18- to 21-inch diameter) accentuate the ENYAQ iV’s attractive appearance. In the Founders Edition, the Crystal Face and 21-inch wheels form part of the extensive range of standard equipment. This special edition is limited to 1,895 units – a tribute to the year in which Václav Laurin and Václav Klement founded the company.



New interior concept with Design Selections and a large 13-inch display

In the interior, ŠKODA has replaced the classic trim levels with Design Selections. To mirror modern living environments, each Design Selection offers tastefully coordinated colours and materials. Natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials are also used. A clear and new structure of the choices available means it’s easier to configure the ENYAQ iV individually: eleven cleverly arranged theme packages, as well as select individual options, allow for quick and easy personal configuration of the vehicle. The 13-inch central display is the largest screen in any ŠKODA model. The new Digital Cockpit measures 5.3 inches; a head-up display is another option available. Here, ŠKODA is using augmented reality for the first time to provide the driver with even more targeted information so they don’t have to take their eyes off the road. In addition to that, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is always online and cleverly connected. Battery charging and the air conditioning can be remotely controlled via the MyŠKODA app. New Simply Clever details make the everyday use of an electric vehicle easier: alongside a cleaner for the charging cable, the car is equipped with a dedicated bag for the cable and a protective cap for the charging socket. And the ENYAQ iV also comes with Simply Clever classics, such as the ŠKODA ice scraper which is inside the tailgate.
