Skoda Enyaq iV to make its first global appearance on September 1, confirms Skoda. Enyaq iV will be Skoda’s first fully electric vehicle that will be the first of the ten electric models from Skoda iV, the sub-brand that plans to launch them by the end of 2022. Skoda also claims that all-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid models will account for 25 per cent of its sales by 2025. In May 2020, we already saw the Enyaq iV being tested in the Czech Republic in an all camouflage avatar but a recently teased silhouette sketch that previewed the outlines of the car confirmed the news of its global premiere.
The Enyaq iV will be on offer with an option of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive systems along with three battery sizes and five power levels. The battery packs on offer will be a 50 kWh with an electric motor of 109kW electric motor, to deliver a range of 340 kilometres per charge. The second will be the 62kWh battery with a 132kW electric motor, boasting a range of 390 kilometres and the range-topper would be an 82kWh battery pack with 150kW electric motor that will offer a range of 500 kilometres. If you thought that's it, there is one more to go which will be an enthusiast-friendly Skoda Enyaq iV RS variant which will be on offer with 225kW of power.
The global premiere of the Enyaq iV will be to mark Skoda’s 125th anniversary. As for now, we have no clue if Skoda plans to bring the electric SUV to India in future but is showing a whole lot of dedication with updating all the models in its India portfolio with the recently launched revamped Superb and Rapid TSI being the latest.
