Skoda's all-electric Enyaq iV 10 | 03 | 2021

    SKODA’S FIRST BESPOKE all-electric car, the Enyaq iV, is available to order now. Prices start at £31,085 after the Government’s £3000 plug-in grant, and buyers have a choice of two battery sizes, the largest delivering a quoted range of 333-miles. (Related: All-electric Hyundai Ioniq 5)

    Sharing its underpinnings with VW Group stablemate, VW’s ID.4, the entry-level Enyaq iV 60 Nav has a WLTP range of 256 miles and uses a 62kWh battery pack which feeds a 178bhp electric motor mounted on the rear axle. It’ll cover 0-62mph in 8.7 seconds. The larger iV 80, which has a capacity of 82kWh and produces 201bhp, has the longer 333-mile range and ups the price to £35,950. It also shaves 0.2s off the 0-62mph time. First deliveries will start in May. (Related: Volvo's C40 Recharge)

    Across the Enyaq range, a 50kW charging capability is included as standard, though the option sheet includes an upgrade to 100kW or, on the 82kWH battery, 125kW. This allows recharging from 10-80% in 38 minutes. In addition, every Enyaq can also charge via a 7kW wallbox — which takes between six and eight hours for a 10%-80% recharge — or a domestic socket.

    Buyers can choose from five design selections; Loft, Lodge, Lounge, Suite and ecoSuite, all of which offer a different interior look and materials.The entry-level Enyaq features a 13.0in infotainment screen, keyless start, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and 19in alloys.

    That level of standard equipment remains across the remaining four trim levels, with changes limited to interior cosmetics. Priced from £31,600, the Lodge models feature natural wool seat upholstery and some extra trim pieces for the dashboard.


    Next up is the £32,200 Lounge. This adds some anodised trim inserts, plus leather-and-Alcantara upholstery. Suite trim comes in at £32,370 and features piano black dashboard trim, plus leather seats. The range-topping Enyaq iV EcoSuite boasts cognac brown leather upholstery, and starts at £32,625.

    As you would expect, there’s a host of options available, including  electrically adjustable front seats (£865), 20in alloys (£520), plus an improved version of Skoda’s climate package. This includes a heated windscreen, heated washer nozzles, heated front and rear seats, plus three-zone climate control.


    There’s also a Skoda Convenience Package Plus which adds keyless entry and go, a driver monitoring system, wireless charging, a foot-activated electric tailgate, extra sound deadening and rear privacy glass.

    Set to go head-to-head with the likes of the Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Kona Electric, the Enya is slightly larger than both. In fact, at 4648mm in length, it’s only around 50mm shorter than Skoda’s Kodiaq SUV flagship … and that’s a long piece of kit. As for bootspace, the Enyaq can swallow 585-litres of luggage with the rear seats in place. (Related: Review — Skoda Kodiaq)


    There’s also bags of additional storage space in the cabin. Under the centre armrest there’s a 6.2-litre ‘jumbo box’, while a further 11.4-litre space is available beneath the centre console. Sensibly, the charging cables live under the boot floor with a cable cleaner.

    There’s also a number of Skoda’s now trademark niceties, including a 12-volt power socket in the boot plus, perhaps more importantly given the UK weather, an umbrella cleverly concealed into the driver’s door. There’s also LED backlighting for the front grille; it’s an option lower down the range, but standard on high-end versions.
