Skoda Enyaq iV ready for unveiling

Skoda has posted an official date on the unveiling of the Enyaq iV. The fully electric SUV will be presented on September 1 in the Czech capital, Prague.

Skoda links the announcement in which it releases the Enyaq iV’s reveal date to an image showing the silhouette of the electric Czech. We have tried to make the image lighter, but that is nothing more than an additional message from Skoda: ‘We will see you in Prague on September 1’. Not shot, always wrong.

The Enyaq iV will be the first Skoda car to be an electric model from the start. It is not the first EV of the brand, however, as the Czechs previously presented the Citigo iV. The Enyaq iV is, just like the ID.3 of Volkswagen and its ID.4 baptized SUV brother, on the modular MEB platform intended strictly for electric models. Fortunately, a solid portion of technical information about the SUV is already known. The Enyaq iV that you can park in front of the door in the long term is 4.65 meters long and 1.62 meters high. This is -ie a lot longer than the aforementioned ID.3 from Volkswagen (4.26 meters). In length, the Enyaq iV surpasses the Nissan Qashqai by as much as 28 centimeters. The wheelbase with 2.77 meters corresponds to that of his hatchback brother from Wolfsburg. In the back, the Enyaq iV can carry 585 liters of stuff, making the electric Czech only slightly less than the Octavia Combi (610 liters).

As far as is known, the Enyaq iV comes on the market in various versions. The starter gets a 52 kWh battery pack and has a 148 hp electric motor that drives the rear wheels. This version would be good for a range of about 340 WLTP kilometers. A step above that comes a type with a 58 kWh battery pack and a 179 hp electric motor, good for a WLTP range of 390 kilometers. Higher up the ladder is the also rear-wheel drive variant with a 77 kWh battery pack. This 204 hp version should, according to Skoda, be good for a range of 500 kilometers.

Prefer more guidance? No problem, there will also be two four-wheel drive versions that both have the 77 kWh battery pack: the 80X and the RS. The 80X has electric motors and delivers 265 hp, while the RS version kicks it up to 306 hp. That RS is able to sprint to 100 km / h in 6.2 seconds and has a top speed of 180 km / h. Both four-wheel drive versions have a range of 460 kilometers. Skoda promises a maximum towing weight of 1,200 kilos for the RS version.

Later this year, the first Enyaq iV will roll off the production line in Mladá Boleslav, the town where Skoda headquarters are located. Early next year the EV will be at the Dutch dealers.
