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.



Thomas Schäfer, ŠKODA AUTO CEO, said, “The launch of the ENYAQ iV sees the start of a new era for ŠKODA. This is our first all-electric car to be based on the MEB platform. By launching this model, we are making E-Mobility Simply Clever – with long ranges, quick charging, ease of operation and affordable prices.



The ENYAQ iV is made in ŠKODA’s heartland, Mladá Boleslav, making our main plant the only production facility for MEB-based vehicles in Europe outside Germany. This is a great testament to ŠKODA’s expertise and I would like to thank the entire team that got the ENYAQ iV rolling. It’s a great car and I’m really proud of the team.”




ŠKODA ENYAQ iV - Infographic



Immediately following the world premiere of the new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV, it is possible in many countries to pre-order the base model and other variants. The exclusive and particularly extensively equipped Founders Edition is limited to 1,895 units and pays homage to the company’s successful history and its founding by Václav Laurin and Václav Klement 125 years ago.



Adorning the multifunction leather steering wheel, a Founders Edition badge – produced by the Czech crystal manufacturer Preciosa – will display the model’s number, confirming that it is from the limited range. The exclusive ENYAQ iV Founders Edition will be delivered in spring 2021.






Founders Edition complete with illuminated radiator grille and 21-inch alloys



The Founders Edition and the ENYAQ RS iV are equipped with a Crystal Face, which includes a stunning, illuminated radiator grille, as standard. For the ENYAQ 80 iV and ENYAQ 80x iV, it is available as an option.




The crystalline-look front of the ENYAQ iV is illuminated by 130 LEDs – a design highlight already seen in the ŠKODA VISION iV concept study. The Founders Edition is available in two engine/battery variants and two colours. It also comes with 21-inch alloys, sporty front and rear aprons and the ecoSuite Design Selection featuring sustainably tanned leather.



HIGHLIGHTS AT A GLANCE



Electric powertrain:



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. With ranges of up to 510 km* in the WLTP cycle, the ENYAQ iV is an ideal everyday companion. Furthermore, it can tow trailers weighing up to 1,400 kg (8% gradient) or 1,200 kg (12% gradient).





Safety:



New assistance systems include Travel Assist, which now has even more functions, as well as remote-controlled and trained parking.




Exterior:

 

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.





Interior:

 

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.





Connectivity:

At 13 inches, the ENYAQ iV’s central screen is larger than in any other ŠKODA. What’s more, the all-new SUV is always online and cleverly connected. Battery charging and the interior’s air conditioning can be conveniently controlled remotely via the ŠKODA Connect app.

 

 

Simply Clever:



ŠKODA has developed Simply Clever solutions specific to electric vehicles, such as a cleaner for the charging cable, a protective cap for the charging socket and a compartment for the charging cable under the boot floor.



The new centre console arranged over two levels provides plenty of space; a clever insert ensures that the false boot floor is neat and tidy. In the ENYAQ iV, the classic ŠKODA ice scraper is located inside the car – in its tailgate to be precise.





Charging:



The MyŠKODA Powerpass ensures owners can easily and conveniently recharge their vehicles at most of the charging points in the European Union using just a single card. In addition, ŠKODA is also involved in building the Ionity quick-charging network throughout Europe.



The brand offers three versions of the ŠKODA iV wall box for at-home charging. Using the fast-charging cable, the owners can recharge their ŠKODA ENYAQ iV at fast-charging stations too.
