Skoda Enyaq iV offers blend of unique design, styling & high tech specs
The Skoda Enyaq iV, one of the most popular all-electric crossover SUVs manufactured by Volkswagen Group’s Skoda Auto, promises a blend of unique design, styling, high tech specs and comfort.
Built on Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, the Skoda Enyaq iV share some styling features with the Audi Q4 e-tron. It is quite angular, with a lot of creases on the bonnet. Obviously, Skoda’s unique design language has been employed to make it stand apart from crowd of others. A closed off grille has been installed at the front.
It may be noted here that the MEB platform is a modular platform that has specifically been designed by Skoda’s parent firm to produce electric vehicles (EVs). It can be used for a variety of models. It has already been used to produce the Audi Q4 e-tron, ID.3 and ID.4; and the manufacturer has plans to use it to produce several more EVs in the future.
Inside, the Enyaq iV is not only comfortable but also stylish. The interior has ambient lighting and high-tech gadgets like a 13-inch landscape screen that dominates the dashboard. It provides hassle-free access to a whole host of functions and information through apps like Android Auto and Apple Car Play.
When it comes to dimensions, the electric SUV measures 1879 mm in width (without exterior mirrors) and 4649 mm in length. In the back, it has a hugely impressive 585 litre of space. The space expands out to 1,710 litres when the seats are folded down, thanks to the dedicated MEB platform.
The RS version of the EV boasts all wheel drive (AWD) with a total output of 225kW, and it delivers 302 horsepower and 339 pound feet of torque. Top speed has been reported at 112 mph, while 0-62 mph acceleration has been pegged at 6.2 seconds. When it comes to battery and range, the lower-end version of the EV comes equipped with a 55kWh battery (52kWh usable), which is enough to deliver a WLTP range of 340 km (210 miles). Those who want a longer range can opt for the RWD drive motor version that comes equipped with a 77kWh usable battery pack with the ability to deliver 510km (320 miles) of WLTP range.
The larger-battery Skoda Enyaq iV 80 comes as standard with a heated steering wheel, rear-view camera, satellite navigation in addition to multiple drive modes. The Sportline iV variant adds some special features, including a drive mode selector button in the centre console with five different options – Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport and Individual.
