- Silhouette offers a foretaste of the new all-electric SUV from ŠKODA
- ENYAQ iV is ŠKODA’s first model based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB)
(PRESS RELEASE) MLADÁ BOLESLAV, 22-Jul-2020 — /EuropaWire/ — Czech automobile manufacturer ŠKODA, part of Volkswagen Group, has announced it is taking a big step forward in implementing its electromobility strategy by unveiling its new all-electric SUV called ENYAQ iV. The automaker’s all-electric SUV is its first series-production vehicle to be based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB). Today only a picture of the vehicle’s silhouette is released to the public, but it offers a foretaste of its most important new model this year. The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV combines brand-typical virtues such as a generous amount of space, emotive design and well-balanced proportions with a sustainable yet fun driving experience.
The silhouette of the new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV gives an idea of the proportions of the brand’s new flagship. A short front section and an elongated roofline create a dynamic exterior while at the same time offering a generous amount of space typical of the brand. The new SUV has a similarly spacious interior as the ŠKODA KODIAQ, despite being shorter in length than a ŠKODA OCTAVIA.
The ENYAQ iV is available with a choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, three battery sizes and five power levels. The ENYAQ iV can be charged quickly, with a maximum capacity of 125 kW. It has a range of up to 500 kilometres in the WLTP cycle, making this practical, fully battery-powered SUV the perfect companion for everyday driving.
The presentation of ŠKODA’s new top model is a highlight of the celebrations marking the company’s 125th anniversary. The premiere of this milestone in ŠKODA’s history will be broadcast live from the Czech capital, Prague, on 1 September 2020. It can be watched on the ŠKODA storyboard and various other social media channels.
