By launching its brand-new Enyaq iV, Škoda is taking the next systematic step in the implementation of its E-Mobility strategy.

The all-electric SUV is the Czech car manufacturer's first production model to be based on Volkswagen Group's MEB modular electric car platform.

The Škoda Enyaq iV offers rear- or all-wheel drive, along with a range that is perfectly suitable for everyday use, covering up to a claimed 510 km in the WLTP cycle, and brand-typical spaciousness. Škoda is continuing to develop its emotive design language - the new SUV features an all-new interior concept offering Design Selections instead of classic trim levels and a brand-new structure of the options available.

For the Irish market there will be Enyaq iV 50 (55kWh battery, 340km range), the Enyaq iV 60 (62kWh battery, 390km range) and the Enyaq iV 80 (82kWh battery, 510km range).

H The Enyaq iV 50 (55kWh) comes with 18" steel wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone climatronic, Keyless Go with cruise control, a 10" infotainment system with bluetooth and smartlink and four speakers. Move up to the Enyaq iV 60 (62kWh), and you get 19" alloy wheels, a rear parking sensor, power-folding mirrors/rain sensor wipers, black roof rails, a front centre armrest and a 13" infotainment system with eight speakers. The Enyaq iV 80 / 80x (82kWh - latter is 4WD) also has 19" alloy wheels, a front parking sensor, rear-view camera, chrome surrounding the windows and on the roof rails, a heated steering wheel and Drive Mode Select. The Enyaq iV 80 is expected to make up the bulk of sales (55%), followed by the Enyaq iV 60 (25%), the Enyaq iV 80x (15%) and the Enyaq iV 50 (5%).

Ireland will receive 270 units of the Enyaq in 2021, so demand is expected to outstrip supply of this new model.
