Skoda launched ENYAQ iV, its first full electric SUV

Measuring 4,649 x 1,879 x 1,616 mm, the ENYAQ iV is similar in size to the traditional KODIAQ SUV and has 2,765 mm wheelbase.

The new electric car will be available in five power outputs, three battery sizes and two drivetrains.

The basic model is the ENYAQ iV 50 with a 109 kW electric motor and rear-wheel drive. This version’s battery has a capacity of 55 kWh (52 kWh net) and a range of 340 kilometres in the WLTP cycle.

The ENYAQ iV 60 has a 62 kW battery (58 kW net). Combined with a 132 kW electric motor, it delivers a range of up to 390 kilometres.

The ENYAQ iV 80 is the third version with rear-wheel drive. It has a 150 kW electric motor and torque of up to 310 Nm. The battery capacity is 82 kW (77 kW net), and it is this version that offers the longest maximum range of 510 kilometres (in the WLTP cycle) on a single charge.

The two all-wheel drive versions also feature the biggest battery

The ENYAQ iV 80X, with a second electric motor on the front axle, delivers a total output of 195 kW, while the sporty ENYAQ iV RS boasts an output of 225 kW.

Both these versions have a range of up to 460 kilometres in the WLTP cycle.

One brand new design element on the electric SUV is the optional Crystal Face radiator grille. The traditional Skoda grille is enhanced with a crystalline effect and is backlit with a total of 130 LEDs that give the car a unique “light signature”.

Special ENYAQ iV to celebrate 125 years of Skoda

One special version of the ENYAQ iV that will be available in a limited series is the Founders Edition, which is already available for pre-order.

With this version, which customers will receive in the first quarter of 2021, Skoda is celebrating 125 years of history. The total production will be just 1,895 units.

”The first electric SUV from Skoda is made in Mladá Boleslav and it represents the next level of transformation with the focus on advancing electrification and digitalisation,” said Thomas Schäfer, Skoda chairman of the board, at the electric SUV’s premiere.
