› Recycled plastics, metals and glass in the new ENYAQ COUPÉ iV
› Seat covers made of new wool and PET bottles as well as leather treated with olive leaf extracts
Mladá Boleslav, 7 March 2022 – ŠKODA has focused on sustainable materials for the new ENYAQ COUPÉ iV, particularly recycled plastics, metals and glass to conserve natural resources. In the Design Selection ‘Lodge’, the seat covers bear the Woolmark Company quality seal: they are made of 40% natural new wool and 60% recycled PET bottles. In the Design Selection ‘ecoSuite’, ŠKODA uses leather that is tanned in an eco-friendly process, using olive leaf extracts.
For ŠKODA, sustainability means not only switching to electric and zero-emission powertrains, but also selecting the materials for car production more consciously. The Czech carmaker has reduced the use of raw materials from non-renewable sources, lowering vehicle weight and energy consumption. ŠKODA uses recycled plastics in the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV, for the underbody covers for example. The material required for this is reclaimed from old battery housings and bumpers. The side windows of the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV are made of 20% recycled scrap glass.
