By launching its brand-new Enyaq iV, Škoda is taking the next systematic step in the implementation of its E-Mobility strategy. The all-electric SUV is the Czech car manufacturer’s first production model to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. The Škoda Enyaq iV offers rear- or all-wheel drive, along with a range that is perfectly suitable for everyday use, covering up to 510 km in the WLTP cycle, and brand-typical spaciousness. ŠKODA is continuing to develop its emotive design language – to this end, the new SUV features an all-new interior concept offering Design Selections instead of classic trim levels and a brand-new structure of the options available. One particular highlight is the exclusive Enyaq iV Founders Edition, which is limited to 1,895 units and is commemorating the company’s anniversary celebrating 125 years of success.

The Enyaq iV boasts an all-new drive concept, exploiting the possibilities that Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform has to offer. The MEB consists of what is known as the skateboard platform, in which the battery is incorporated into the floor to save space. Three battery sizes, five power outputs ranging from 109 to 225 kW and rear- or all wheel drive cater to many different requirements and uses. New assistance systems include Travel Assist, which now has even more functions, as well as remote-controlled and trained parking.

The Enyaq iV’s design language is emotive, powerful and dynamic. The new SUV is characterised by perfect proportions and extraordinary spaciousness. It offers a similar amount of interior space as a Škoda Kodiaq, despite being shorter in length than a Škoda Octavia. As optional extras, the illuminated Crystal Face – which comes with an animated Coming/Leaving Home function – and full LED Matrix headlights adorn the striking front sporting the large Škoda grille. The full LED tail lights include dynamic indicators and also have an animated Coming/Leaving Home function.

New Design Selections replace the classic trim levels and set new standards for the interior. Each Design Selection, put together by Škoda material concept designers, provides a tasteful interior with an exceptional feel-good factor and features natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials. A new, clearer structure of the choices available – ten themed packages as well as some individual options – makes it quick and easy to customise the vehicle to suit the owner’s taste.
