2021 Skoda Enyaq iV

Efficient, emotive and electrifying - these attributes neatly sum up the ENYAQ iV. In launching its first all-electric SUV, the Czech car manufacturer has taken the biggest step yet in its electromobility strategy. The new ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA production model to be based on Volkswagen Group's MEB modular electric car platform. It is built at ŠKODA's main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the only MEB-based model in Europe to be manufactured outside of Germany.

ŠKODA's new flagship boasts generous amounts of space as is typical of the brand, and - thanks to its emotive design language - its appearance is electrifying too. Inside, new Design Selections replace the classic trim levels, while a clear and new structure of the options available means the car can be configured with just a few clicks. The ENYAQ iV comes with rear- or all-wheel drive, and there are five power levels and three battery sizes to choose from. The range of more than 520 km in the WLTP cycle is perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. The car will be launched in the spring of 2021.

Wide range of powertrain variants with three battery sizes and five power levels

The new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV fully exploits the technical possibilities and flexibility that the MEB modular electric car platform has to offer. The battery - which is fitted in the floor - is available in three sizes, and one or two electric motors provide a power output between 109 kW and 220 kW. Depending on the model, power is transmitted to the rear or all four wheels, and the range is more than 520 km in the WLTP cycle. The electric SUV suits various needs from a spacious and agile city car for families to a vehicle ideal for those who travel long distances. Equipped with the right, optional tow bar, the all-electric SUV can even tow trailers weighing up to 1,400 kg.

Plenty of space, emotive design and Crystal Face highlight

The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV's design is characterised by balanced proportions - it is emotive, powerful and dynamic. The new SUV has an extremely spacious interior. The capacity of the boot is 585 l. The optional Crystal Face is, quite literally, the highlight: the vertical ribs of the striking ŠKODA grille are illuminated by 131 LEDs, while a horizontal light strip rounds off the car's stunning look. Together with the daytime running lights and the LED modules of the full LED Matrix headlights for low beam and high beam, the lit-up grille creates a welcoming display. Large wheels (18- to 21-inch diameter) accentuate the ENYAQ iV's attractive appearance. In the Founders Edition, the Crystal Face and 21-inch wheels form part of the extensive range of standard equipment. This special edition is limited to 1,895 units - a tribute to the year in which Václav Laurin and Václav Klement founded the company.

New interior concept with Design Selections and a large 13-inch display

In the interior, ŠKODA has replaced the classic trim levels with Design Selections. To mirror modern living environments, each Design Selection offers tastefully coordinated colours and materials. Natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials are also used. A clear and new structure of the choices available means it's easier to configure the ENYAQ iV individually: eleven cleverly arranged theme packages, as well as select individual options, allow for quick and easy personal configuration of the vehicle. The 13-inch central display is the largest screen in any ŠKODA model. The new Digital Cockpit measures 5.3 inches; a head-up display is another option available. Here, ŠKODA is using augmented reality for the first time to provide the driver with even more targeted information so they don't have to take their eyes off the road. In addition to that, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is always online and cleverly connected. Battery charging and the air conditioning can be remotely controlled via the MyŠKODA app. New Simply Clever details make the everyday use of an electric vehicle easier: alongside a cleaner for the charging cable, the car is equipped with a dedicated bag for the cable and a protective cap for the charging socket. And the ENYAQ iV also comes with Simply Clever classics, such as the ŠKODA ice scraper which is inside the tailgate.

Electric powertrain: First MEB-based ŠKODA production model

The ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA production model to be based on Volkswagen Group's Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB). The MEB consists of what is known as the skateboard platform, in which the battery is incorporated into the floor to save space. The all-electric SUV is available with three battery sizes, five power variants and rear- or all-wheel drive, and therefore caters to a wide range of needs for a variety of uses. Requiring little time to recharge and offering ranges of up to 510 km in the WLTP cycle, the ENYAQ iV is ideal for everyday use as well as for covering long distances. ŠKODA's new flagship is made at the Czech carmaker's main plant in Mladá Boleslav - making it the only model in Europe based on Volkswagen Group's MEB platform to be built outside Germany.

Christian Strube, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development, said, "The numerous possible combinations, for example in terms of battery sizes and power outputs, make the modular electric car platform a perfect technical basis for our all-electric vehicles. The MEB allows us to cater individually to our customers' different needs and usage habits, and to develop even more technically innovative ŠKODA iVs in future."

The entry-level version of the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is a practical and sustainable everyday family companion, providing a generous amount of space and high level of functionality. There is also a perfect ENYAQ iV for people who drive a lot looking for maximum range and quick charging, as well as for customers with a dynamic driving style who expect optimal performance even from an electric SUV.

Entry-level variants with rear-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive

In the ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA is making use of an all-new drive concept that nevertheless makes some reference to the company's history: just as with many of the brand's past models, ŠKODA is making use of rear-wheel drive for its new electric SUV too. The ENYAQ iV is a versatile partner for the daily commute as well as long distances. Its maximum range is 510 km in the WLTP cycle and it has a superfast-charging capacity of up to 125 kW. The 82-kWh battery, which has a net capacity of 77 kWh, can be charged from 5 to 80 per cent in just 38 minutes at correspondingly powerful DC charging points. At home, the ENYAQ iV can conveniently be 'refuelled' overnight using an AC wall box of up to 11 kW - depending on the battery size, this process takes six to eight hours. What's more, the ENYAQ iV is equipped with a special iV universal charger that fits all conventional charging sockets.

Five power variants, three battery sizes, two motors and all-wheel drive

Offering three battery sizes and five different power variants, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV makes driving both sustainable and fun. In addition to the one on the rear axle, the two most powerful models are also fitted with a second electric motor on the front axle that transfers the SUV's torque of 425 and 460 Nm respectively to the road via all four wheels. The entry-level ŠKODA ENYAQ 50 iV is fitted with a 109-kW rear-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive; its maximum torque is 220 Nm. Its lithium-ion battery has a gross capacity of 55 kWh (52 kWh net) and it has a range of up to 340 km. Equipped with a 62-kWh battery (58 kWh net), the 132-kW ENYAQ 60 iV can cover up to 390 km; its maximum torque is 310 Nm.

The ENYAQ 80 iV has an output of 150 kW, torque of up to 310 Nm and, at 510 km in the WLTP cycle, boasts the longest maximum range. The 82-kWh battery (77 kWh net) is also used in the two all-wheel-drive variants - combined with the second electric motor on the front axle, the ENYAQ 80x iV produces 195 kW and the ENYAQ RS iV delivers 225 kW. Both of these models have a range of 460 km.

The range-topping ŠKODA ENYAQ RS iV is particularly fun to drive. It accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 180 km/h - 20 km/h faster than other power variants. In addition, the most powerful ENYAQ iV can tow a trailer weighing up to 1,400 kg; the SUV can be fitted with an electrically retractable tow bar as an optional extra.

Outstanding aerodynamics for greater efficiency

The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV's aerodynamics - which are outstanding for an SUV - allow for a high level of efficiency and, as a result, long ranges. This is also evident in the drag coefficient (cd) from 0.27, which is achieved with the help of tyres that boast a particularly low rolling resistance. A heat pump, which is used for the heating and air conditioning in the interior, is an optional extra for the electric SUV. A highly efficient heat pump system compresses refrigerant under high pressure. This produces heat, which is used to warm up the cold air flowing into the car.

Interior highlights: pleasant ambience created through Design Selections

ŠKODA has also taken a new approach in the creation of the ENYAQ iV's interior, now offering innovative Design Selections instead of classic trim levels and a clear and new structure for the options available. The Design Selections have been inspired by modern living environments: the style, colours and materials used are all perfectly coordinated. The ENYAQ iV is now very easy to configure in just a few steps because of the completely new structure for the choices on offer. Customers can choose from eleven theme packages and select individual options - regardless of their preferred model.

Electric powertrain: three battery sizes and five power levels

Three battery sizes, five power levels and rear- or all-wheel drive with one or two electric motors: offering a wide range of powertrain variants, the new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV caters to many different requirements. The first ŠKODA MEB-based model fully exploits the diverse technical possibilities the Volkswagen Group platform has to offer. The ENYAQ iV is sustainable, fun to drive, impressively agile and - thanks to excellent aerodynamics - highly efficient. Requiring little time to recharge and offering ranges of more than 520 km in the WLTP cycle, it is also ideal for covering long distances. The brand's first electric SUV is produced at ŠKODA's main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the only MEB-based model in Europe to be built outside of Germany.

The new ENYAQ iV is an agile and efficient family car with plenty of space. Offering great mileage and fast charging, it is also the perfect long-distance vehicle for people who spend a lot of time on the road. The ENYAQ iV is equally appealing as a sustainable sports car that is fun to drive with its impressive performance. With three battery sizes, five power levels and rear- or all-wheel drive, every customer will find the right model to meet their needs.

Design Selections with sustainable seat upholstery

Sustainable materials are also used in the ENYAQ iV's interior. In addition to floor and boot mats made using fibres from recycled PET bottles and sound insulation made from recycled textiles, the ENYAQ iV also offers seat covers made of eco-friendly materials. In the Design Selection 'Lodge', these are made of 40% natural new wool and bear the Woolmark Company's Wool Blend Performance label, reserved for products containing between 30 and 49.9% new wool. The polyester for the remaining 60% of this upholstery fabric has been reclaimed from recycled PET bottles.

In addition to 'Lodge', the Design Selection 'ecoSuite' also offers sustainable seat covers. The cognac-coloured leather is produced without the typical use of chromium sulphate-based chemicals. Instead, olive leaf extracts are used in the tanning process. This is sustainable and therefore better for the environment: it makes efficient use of olive leaves, which are considered waste material in other industries. The leather upholstery in seats and other parts of the interior in the 'ecoSuite' features a smooth, grained texture. The seats also bear a badge indicating that the leather has been processed in an eco-friendly manner.
