Skoda Enyaq electric crossover will debut this yearJuly 16, 2020
The Czech company has sent its long-awaited first all-electric vehicle for testing. Enyaq will be presented later this year and will go on sale in early 2021.
Skoda has its own policy when it comes to testing vehicles. Enyaq IV has already been spotted several times in trials both completely disguised and with little or no camouflage. According to autoweek.nl, the blue crossover, which appeared in fresh spy photos, more accurately repeats the last prototypes seen.
Skoda’s electric crossover is fully unveiled with the exception of some clever headlight decals and a professionally redesigned rear end that can mislead anyone. However, it’s already clear that the Enyaq is like an SUV with a high dose of design cues from the Vision iV Concept unveiled last year. The sharp headlights and the large, almost completely enclosed grille have largely “survived the concept stage.” The main difference is the rear, where the Enyaq gets a more wagon-like roofline, while the Vision iV had a sloping roofline.
The newcomer is roving the MEB platform specifically designed for Volkswagen Group’s electric vehicles, and Skoda recently announced what that means for Enyaq. The base in the line is the Enyaq iV 50 with a length of 4.65 meters. It has a 52 kWh battery and a 148 hp electric motor. on the rear axle for a range of 340 km (WLTP).
Next up is the Enyaq iV 60 with a 179-horsepower electric motor at the rear. The slightly larger battery (58 kWh) should provide up to 390 km of range on a single charge. The top version among the rear-wheel drive options is the Enyaq iV 80, with a capacity of 204 hp. and an electric range of 500 km, which guarantees a battery with a capacity of 77 kWh.
Those who prefer four-wheel drive can choose the Enyaq iV 80X with a 77 kWh battery, two electric motors (front and rear) for a total of 265 hp. The top-performing RS version also features front-wheel drive and a built-in 77 kWh battery. A pair of her electric motors develop power up to 306 hp.
