Skoda has released camouflage images of its first-ever all-electric SUV during testing. Skoda states that the Enyaq iV will come in a wide range of versions, even an RS one! The electric SUV measures 4,648mm in length and 1,877mm in width, which makes it slightly smaller than the standard Skoda Kodiaq. Also, the Enyaq iV is 1,618mm in height, compared to the Kodiaq’s 1,676mm, which should help in the handling department. Most importantly though, charging capacity will be up to 125 kW, which will make it possible to charge the battery from 10 percent to 80 percent in just forty minutes.
Skoda officials believe that the Enyaq iV SUV will have a spacious interior that gives the impression of a living room. The Czech automaker also plans to use sustainable materials like leather tanned with olive extract for the interiors. 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 maximum possible room for the occupants. The boot space is generously spacious at 585-litre.
Like we mentioned before, the Skoda Enyaq iV will come 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 Skoda Enyaq iV 50 with a battery capacity of 55 kWh, which will have a 109 kW (147bhp) electric motor mounted on the rear axle and will deliver a range of up to 340 kilometres per charge. Next up will be the Skoda Enyaq iV 60 with a 132 kW (178bhp) electric motor and a 62 kWh battery. This version will have a range of 390 kilometres.
The largest range, which is up to 500 kilometres, will be offered by the Skoda Enyaq iV 80 with an 82 kWh battery capacity and a 150 kW (202bhp) 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 Skoda Enyaq iV 80X will offer 195 kW (262bhp) of power, while the downright sporty RS will deliver 225 kW (302bhp)! The most powerful 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.
