What is known about the first Skoda electric crossover?February 12, 2020
The first electric crossover in the history of the Czech automaker will be called Enyaq. It will be built on the new MEB platform from the German concern Volkswagen Group.
Kamiq, Karoq and Kodiaq are all the names of modern crossovers of the Czech company. All Skoda crossovers have names that begin with the letter “K” and end with the letter “Q”. The Czech brand is making minor changes to the range of its new models, replacing the first letter with the letter “E” to indicate a fully electric model.
The novelty will receive the designation Enyaq. Although the previously shown Citigoe iV will go down in history as the company’s first electric car, the future Enyaq crossover will be the first to be designed from the very beginning as an electric car.
Skoda Enyaq will be built on the MEB platform from the German Volkswagen Group, which includes the Czech brand.
Skoda will not go into details regarding Enyaq yet, but it is expected that the car with zero emissions will be the production version of the attractive Vision iV concept presented almost a year ago. The sleek demo car had a coupe-like body, eye-catching doors and 22-inch wheels – all this is unlikely to get a production car. Nevertheless, there is reason to believe that the new product will still be very stylish.
In a conceptual version, the Skoda electric cross-country vehicle had two engines – one for each axis – a total capacity of 302 horsepower and four-wheel drive. He could boast a power reserve of 500 kilometers, and in order to charge the battery up to 80%, it was necessary in just half an hour.
