Skoda has confirmed its new electric Enyaq SUV will be priced from £33,450 (exc grant) when orders start later in the year.
The new model is the first Skoda to be based on the VW Group’s MEB platform, which also underpins the VW ID3 and the Cupra El Born.
It will arrive in dealerships next Spring and will be available with two battery size options and a choice of two- and four-wheel-drive.
All Enyaq iV models have a minimum DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard. Customers can specify higher 100kW (for 62kWh battery) and 125kW (for 82kWh battery) DC charge rates as options.
The Enyaq iV 60 uses a 62kWh battery pack, which provides a range of 242 miles and has an output of 180 PS.
The Enyaq iV 80 is priced from £38,950. It uses an 82kWh battery pack, providing a range of up to 316 miles and a more potent 204PS.
Entry-level 60 models come equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels, a 13-inch infotainment screen, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control and keyless go.
The 80 adds chrome detailing, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera. 80 models also come with a heated two-spoke leather steering wheel that features paddles for setting the levels of regenerative braking, Drive Mode Selection and infotainment system with navigation.
Both versions are fitted with an interior spec called Loft. This features fabric and artificial leather seat facings and brushed aluminium decor panels as standard.
For an additional £1,285, customers can specify an interior design pack called Suite that adds leather trim and piano black decor panels or opt for the Lounge interior design pack with light grey leather with mustard yellow stitching for an additional £1,115.
All models also feature road sign recognition, ambient interior lighting, multifunction leather steering wheel and Front Assist as standard.
Skoda will also offer the Enyaq iV 80 Founders Edition. Priced from £49,995, it features 125kW DC charging, 21-inch alloy wheels, illuminated front grille with LED Crystal face & Matrix LED headlights and a unique black leather interior design pack as standard.
With the traction battery housed in the floor and a compact motor mounted beneath the boot floor, the Enyaq’s cabin is unburdened by the packaging compromises of a traditional internal combustion engine car. As a result, occupants are promised a spacious interior with a flat floor and a boot that can hold 585-litres of luggage.
The Enyaq will be available to order from late 2020, with the first UK deliveries expected next Spring.
