Škoda Enyaq iV electric SUV to bring 316-mile range
Škoda has revealed further details for its Enyaq iV electric SUV, which will bring pricing from £30,450 (incl. the PiCG grant) and up to a 316-mile range when it arrives early 2021.
The brand’s second electric car and its first electric SUV, the Enyaq iV will be available in the UK with two battery size options, rear- or four-wheel drive and various model variants.
On sale from late 2020, it’s built on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB) also being used for the Volkswagen ID.3 and Cupra El Born electric hatchbacks. It’s designed for practicality and space; the battery is housed in the floor and the motor is under the boot floor, enabling it to offer a flat cabin floor and 585 litres of luggage room.
Alongside its boot space, its range will also open it up to more practical usage than just urban journeys. The rear-wheel drive model featuring the larger 82kWh battery generates 204hp and has a WLTP-rated range of up to 316 miles. The range also includes an entry-level 62kWh battery version with 180hp and a WLTP range of up to 242 miles on a single charge.
Both battery options have a minimum DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard and customers can specify 100kW DC charging rates for the 62kWh battery and 125kW for the 82kWh battery. The latter allows the Enyaq iV to be charged from 10 to 80% in just 38 minutes. T
The Enyaq can also be charged using a standard household 230V socket or at home overnight using a wallbox of up to 7kW. Depending on the battery size, the charging process takes six to eight hours.
Equipment on the entry-level Enyaq iV 60 version, which comes with the 62kWh battery and is priced from £30,450 (incl. PiCG grant), includes 19-inch alloy wheels, an infotainment system with a 13-inch screen, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control and keyless go.
The Enyaq iV 80 (from £35,950 incl. Government grant) comes with the 82kWh battery pack and adds in 19-inch alloys, chrome detailing, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera. Other features include a heated two-spoke leather steering wheel that features paddles for setting the levels of regenerative braking, Drive Mode Selection and infotainment system with navigation.
Both models also feature road sign recognition, ambient interior lighting, multifunction leather steering wheel and Front Assist as standard, and feature fabric / artificial leather seat facings and brushed aluminium decor panels as standard.
They can also be specified with optional Lounge and Suite leather interior design packs.
A range-topping Enyaq iV 80 Founders Edition features the higher-powered battery plus 125kW DC charging capability, as well as 21-inch alloy wheels, illuminated front grille with LED Crystal face & Matrix LED headlights and a bespoke black leather interior design pack as standard. It’s priced at £46,995 (incl. Government grant).
The Enyaq iV will be available to order from late 2020, with the first UK deliveries expected next spring.
