The Enyaq iV is the brand’s first vehicle to be based on the Volkswagen Group’s new electric car underpinnings - known as MEB. The Group will build around 25 different models on this ‘platform’ which is essentially a framework that contains the battery pack, motor and suspension.
ŠKODA willl offer the Enyaq iV with two battery size options, two (rear-wheel drive) and four-wheel drive transmission and various model variants. These may well include sporty versions in the near future.
Batteries and charging
All Enyaq iV models have a minimum DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard with the option up upgrade to 100kW (for 62kWh battery) and 125kW (for 82kWh battery) DC charge rates. When equipped with the highest rate charger, the Enyaq iV can be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in just 38 minutes.
The entry level 62kWh battery model (from £30,450) is equipped with a 180PS (132kW) motor that drives the rear wheels through a single-speed transmission. It has a WLTP range of up to 242 miles on a single charge. The larger 82kWh RWD model (priced from £35,950) generates 204PS (150kW) and is capable of returning up to 316 miles on a single charge (WLTP).
