The Škoda Enyaq iV electric SUV opens for orders in two days, priced from £31,085 (incl. Plug-in Grant) and also available on a new finance package.
It’s the brand’s first purpose-built battery electric vehicle and will be offered with two battery sizes – 62kWh and 82kWh – bringing WLTP ranges of up to 256 miles and 333 miles respectively and with rear-wheel drive.
Instead of selecting from traditional trim levels, customers choose the battery size they need, select an interior design from a choice of five and then personalise their vehicle from a range of equipment packs and individual options.
The entry-level Enyaq iV 60 Nav uses the 62kWh battery along with a 180hp motor on the rear axle. It comes with equipment includes 19-inch Proteus alloy wheels, an infotainment system with satellite navigation and 13-inch screen, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control and keyless go. All models also feature ambient interior lighting, multifunction leather steering wheel and Front Assist as standard.
Jumping up to the Enyaq iV 80 (priced from £35,950 incl. Plug-in Grant) brings the 82kWh battery pack with a WLTP range of up to 333 miles and 204hp output. The increased standard specification on the iV 80 includes chrome detailing, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera. The 80 models also come with a heated two-spoke leather steering wheel with paddles for setting the levels of regenerative braking, Drive Mode Select and infotainment system with navigation.
Both models come with the standard Loft interior package and can be upgraded to the Lodge, Lounge, Suite or ecoSuite interiors.
Details of the forthcoming all-wheel drive Enyaq iV models or the Sportline trim have not been revealed.
All Enyaq iV models have a minimum DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard. Customers can specify higher 100kW (for 62kWh battery) and 125kW (for 82kWh battery only) DC charge rates as options.
Charging with a 7.2kW wallbox takes approximately 9.5 hours for the 62 kWh and around 13 hours for the 82 kWh battery (both to 100% charge). Rapid charging can enables the Enyaq iV 80 to go from 10 to 80% in 38 minutes and 35 minutes for the Enyaq iV 60 Nav.
The Enyaq iV also comes with a new Lease&Care personal finance option developed by Volkswagen Financial Services specifically for electric car buyers and including a choice of built-in aftersales packages.
Measuring 4,649 millimetres long and 1,879 wide, the Enyaq iV is built on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB) and uses a layout that houses the battery in the floor while the motor is mounted beneath the boot floor. As a result, the interior benefits from a flat floor while the boot can hold 585 litres of luggage, rising to 1,710 litres with the rear seats folded.
