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.

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 Ireland Brand Director, John Donegan, said, “Despite the economic and industry challenges, we are confident of achieving our long-stated aim of achieving fourth position in the Irish market for 2020. With the arrival of the new Octavia this September we are determined to maintain this position in 2021. By the end of 2022, ŠKODA will have more than ten electric or partially electric iV models in our range. This portfolio of new models, together with our strong dealer network and partnership with Volkswagen Financial Services puts the ŠKODA brand in an ideal position to challenge for the number two position in the Irish car market.”

For the Irish market – there will be ENYAQ iV 50 (55kWh battery, 340km range), the ENYAQ iV 60 (62kWh battery, 390km range) and the ENYAQ iV 80 (82kWh battery, 510km range). The ENYAQ iV 50 (55kWh) comes with 18” steel wheels, LED headlights, Dual-zone Climatronic, Keyless Go with Cruise Control, a 10” infotainment system and Bluetooth and Smartlink and 4-speakers. Move up to the ENYAQ iV 60 (62kWh), and you get 19” alloy wheels, a rear parking sensor, power-folding mirrors/rain sensor wipers, Black roof rails, a front centre armrest and a 13" infotainment system with eight speakers. The ENYAQ iV 80 / 80x (82kWh - latter is 4WD) also has 19” alloy wheels, a front parking sensor, rear-view camera, chrome surrounding the windows and on the roof rails, a heated steering wheel and Drive Mode Select. The ENYAQ iV 80 is expected to make up the bulk of sales (55%), followed by the ENYAQ iV 60 (25%), the ENYAQ iV 80x (15%) and the ENYAQ iV 50 (5%).

Ireland will receive 270 units of the ENYAQ in 2021, so demand is expected to outstrip supply of this new model. First to arrive will be the 80 models, followed closely by the 60 models. Irish buyers can find out more information on the ENYAQ iV at https://www.skoda.ie/models/enyaq-iv/enyaq-iv.

Highlights of the brand-new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 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 taillights 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.
