Carmaker ŠKODA has given us the first glimpse of the details of its ENYAQ iV, which will come in a wide range of versions. You can also check out some photos from testing, when the car was decked out in camouflage.

At 4,648 millimetres long and 1,877 wide, the electric ENYAQ iV SUV will be slightly smaller than the standard ŠKODA KODIAQ. But its height of 1,618 millimetres is a clear sign that the ENYAQ iV will have more dynamic qualities. Even so, buyers of the first electric SUV from ŠKODA can look forward to a spacious interior that gives the impression of a living room. This is underlined by the new interior concept: customers can choose from various versions and ŠKODA, for the first time in a mass-produced car, is using sustainable materials like leather tanned with olive extract.

The generous interior space of the ENYAQ iV is – thanks to the MEB platform, which houses the traction battery in the vehicle's floor – leaving the maximum possible room for the occupants. The 585-litre luggage compartment is proof that the car is truly spacious. As a result, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV will be both a dynamic and a practical electric vehicle.


Customers can buy their ŠKODA ENYAQ iV in various design versions: either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, with three different battery capacities and five performance versions. The basic model will be the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 50 with a battery capacity of 55 kWh, which will have a 109 kW electric motor mounted on the rear axle and will deliver a range of up to 340 kilometres per charge. Next up will be the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 60 with a 132 kW electric motor and a 62 kWh battery. This version will have a range of 390 kilometres.

The biggest range, up to 500 kilometres, will be offered by the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 80 with an 82 kWh battery capacity and a 150 kW electric motor. The two four-wheel-drive versions will also have the highest-capacity battery and a second electric motor at the front in addition to the one on the rear axle. The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 80X will offer 195 kW of power, while the downright sporty RS will deliver 225 kW. The most dynamic version will accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and have a top speed of 180 km/h. Both four-wheel-drive versions will have a maximum range of 460 kilometres.

Charging capacity will be up to 125 kW, which will make it possible to charge the battery from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in just forty minutes.
