The Czech novelty is at the very early stage of testing and therefore hides under the body of the German crossover VW Tiguan. This will be the first Skoda electric car built on the MEB modular platform developed by the engineers of the VW Group. The presentation is scheduled for 2020.

I am sure that when viewing the photos published by us you say – this is the second-generation German Volkswagen Tiguan crossover and where is the electric SUV from Skoda. But the fact is that this is it – at the very early stages of developing a new model, many automakers use the bodies of other cars, because their native body is not ready for their new items.

 So, on the Nurburgring racetrack, the first Czech electric Skoda crossover is being wound around, which will be built on the MEB modular platform, which was developed by the engineers of the VW Group, which includes Skoda.

It is worth noting that the German compact Volkswagen ID.3 hatchback is also built on the same platform.

According to the plan of the leadership of the Czech automaker, by the middle of the next decade, the brand lineup will be replenished with 10 electrified models, including the crossover that is shown in these “spy” images. The conceptual version of the car, called the Vision iV, was shown earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

At the moment, the name of the model is unknown, but recent rumors indicate that the new product will receive the designation Eniaq or Enyaq. No matter what the electric crossover is called, the SUV will have much in common with the German Volkswagen V.4 IDW, which was shown last month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

 What to expect from the electric crossover Skoda Eniaq / Enyaq? The concept presented had two electric motor, one for each axis, the total power was equal to 302 horsepower. Torque is directed to all four wheels. A large 83 kWh battery pack provides a range of 500 km. It took 5.9 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h, but the maximum speed was 180 km / h.
