The Škoda Enyaq iV will be available to order in the UK from Wednesday, starting at prices from £31,085 after the plug-in car grant and with a choice of two battery sizes.
Škoda already presented the details of the five different performance variants (three with rear-wheel drive and two with four-wheel drive) and three battery sizes of their first MEB-based electric SUV in May. The release of the different versions has not completely been announced, but the rollout will continue steadily. The EV ranges between 340 kilometres (Enyaq 50 iV) and 510 kilometres (Enyaq 80 iV) have not changed much either. Almost all versions have a maximum speed of 160 kph, while only the top model Enyaq RS iV is capable of driving 180 kph. Besides, this version can pull a trailer weighing up to 1,400 kilograms, and a swivelling trailer coupling with an electric release is available as an option.
Regarding the charging capacities, the vehicle can charge as low as 7 kW on a household socket (AC) and up to 125 kW DC. In the basic version, the Enyaq iV does not include a three-phase onboard charger – even the comparable VW model ID.3 Pure only has a two-phase charger with a maximum of 7.2 kW. Škoda has chosen a similar gradation for the DC charging power as VW did for the ID.3: The version with the smallest battery only manages 50 kW, the 58-kWh battery 100 kW and the 77-kWh version manages the maximum specified 125 kW.
The electric SUV was officially presented in September, and at the time the launch date for the UK was set in early 2021, which the company manage to effectively follow up. At the time, prices were also stated for the UK, starting from £33,450 (before the £3000 PiCG). The founders variant costs almost £50,000, and prices have remained stable. A sportline model version was also introduced a few weeks ago, however, the announcement of when the vehicles will be produced or what they will cost was not made.
