After an intensive teaser campaign, Skoda has finally shown the production model: The Enyaq iV is the Czech brand's first electric SUV and technically a cousin of the upcoming VW ID.4. Both vehicles (like the ID.3) are based on the VW Group's modular electrification kit (MEB).

The Enyaq is about the same size as the Kodiaq; to be exact, it is six centimeters shorter. The exact dimensions are 4,649 millimeters long, 1,879 millimeters wide and 1,616 millimeters high, and the wheelbase is 2,765 millimeters. 585 liters fit in the trunk, the maximum volume has not yet been announced. That is noticeably less than the five-seat Kodiaq. Depending on the position of the rear seat, 650–835 liters fit into these, the maximum volume is 2,065 liters.

Drive: five variants

Five versions are offered, including three rear-wheel drive and two all-wheel drive. Depending on the variant, the output is between 109 and 225 kW (148 to 306 hp). There are also three different batteries for ranges between 340 and 510 kilometers. The top speed of the top version vRS is 180 km / h and thus 20 km / h higher than the other versions.

In the latter case, it takes 38 minutes for the largest battery (82 kWh, net 77 kWh) to be charged from 5 to 80 percent. With 11 kW, charging takes between six and eight hours, depending on the battery.

Optics: With illuminated grill

Visually, the Enyaq iV matches the new Skoda design that was introduced with the Scala. A special feature is the grill, the vertical slats of which are illuminated by LEDs in the higher versions; there is also a horizontal LED light strip on the grill. LED headlights are standard, with LED matrix headlights and wiper indicators available as options.

At the back, the Skoda lettering is emblazoned in the middle of the tailgate. There is also a matt black spoiler and a gray diffuser. The roof rails, the strips on the windows and the grill frame are available in chrome, glossy or matt black. You can also order aluminum wheels in sizes from 18 to 21 inches.

Cockpit: for the first time with augmented reality function

The Enyaq is the first Skoda to have a head-up display with augmented reality function. It projects its information in two different areas: directly above the dashboard on the windshield and as augmented reality displays higher up in the driver's field of vision.

At 13.0 inches, the infotainment display in the middle of the cockpit is the largest Skoda monitor to date. Sustainable materials such as leather, wool and recycled materials are used inside. What is new is that there are no standard interior fittings, but five different ones Design selectionsthat differ in seat covers, moldings and materials.
