The world premiere of the first electric crossover of the Czech brand Skoda Enyaq iV will take place on September 1 in Prague.

With the new Enyaq iV, Skoda is taking a big step forward in its mobility strategy. The all-electric SUV is the brand’s first production vehicle based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular EV platform.

In anticipation of the debut, the company released a teaser of the model, which says that the presentation of the car will take place on September 1, 2020 in Prague.

There are three battery sizes and five motor options to choose from. The all-electric SUV is slated to be assembled at Skoda’s main plant in Mlada Boleslav, making it Europe’s first MEB-based Volkswagen Group car produced outside Germany.

The first MEB based Skoda is ideal for everyday use and fun driving. The new Skoda Enyaq iV is a typical car of the brand, but with a completely new drive concept. The first production model from the Czech manufacturer based on the MEB modular electric vehicle platform is also ideal for long journeys, boasting a range of up to 500 km and fast charging. Thanks to the concept of the car, the designers were able to design the interior of the Skoda Enyaq iV in a completely new way. This provides even more space for passengers and their luggage, despite the compact size of the car, and at the same time creates an experience that is as emotional as it is modern.

In addition, the novelty offers state-of-the-art connectivity as well as infotainment solutions and typical Skoda Simply Clever features.

The first electrified SUV from the Czech automaker has a length of 4648 mm, a width of 1877 mm and a height of 1618 mm, a wheelbase of 2765 mm and a trunk volume of 585 liters. The loading threshold, set low for the SUV, makes it easy to load even heavy or bulky items.

The car’s world premiere will also mark the start of pre-sales. Serial production of the Skoda Enyaq iV will begin at the end of 2020. Its market launch is scheduled for early 2021. Equipped with special features and a distinctive look, the Fonders Edition will be limited to 1,895 pieces, marking the founding of the company 125 years ago.

In the basic version, the motor drives the rear wheels, thus creating a technical bridge to the history of the car manufacturer. The more powerful versions are equipped with a second electric motor at the front, which transfers torque even more efficiently to the road. In its most powerful variant, the Skoda Enyaq iV can tow loads up to 1200 kg if required. A total of five different power options and three battery sizes will be on the market.

The base version will be the Skoda Enyaq iV 50. Its lithium-ion battery has a total capacity of 55 kW / h. The rear electric motor delivers 148 hp, offering a maximum range of 340 km. It grows to 390 km in the 180-horsepower Skoda Enyaq iV 60, equipped with a 62 kWh battery. Enyaq iV 80 rear wheel drive 200 hp has a maximum range of up to 500 km in the WLTP cycle. The 82 kWh battery is also used in two versions, equipped with a second electric motor and therefore all-wheel drive: 80X and vRS, which produce 265 and 305 hp. respectively. The top model accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 6.2 seconds and has a top speed of 180 km / h. The maximum range of both all-wheel drive variants is up to 460 km.

Recharges up to 80% in just 40 minutes with fast charging. The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV can be charged in three different ways. In addition to the regular 230V AC outlet with 2.3 kW AC output, the car can also be easily refueled overnight at home using a wall box up to 11 kW. This takes six to eight hours depending on the size of the battery. DC fast charging stations with 125 kW charging capacity are the third option. They can charge the ENYAQ iV battery from 10% to 80% in just 40 minutes.

The hallmark of the new Skoda Enyaq iV is its innovative interior design that conveys a new sense of spaciousness. The car also offers state-of-the-art connectivity and infotainment solutions, with all relevant information displayed to the driver on a free-standing 13-inch center display and optionally on the digital instrument cluster screen.
