Skoda ENYAQ iV electric SUV details announced

Last winter, Skoda hosted the first international drive of its first fully electric SUV in the small town of Durrow, County Laois. The ENYAQ iV is an exciting proposition for SKODA and it is expected to go on sale in Ireland in the first quarter of 2021. With three battery sizes. Five power variants and a fast charging option for shorter charging times, the ENYAQ iV will offer a range of up to 500 kilometres and strong driving performance.

The ENYAQ iV is the first production Skoda model to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB electric car platform, and it promises generous amounts of cabin space, a stylish design and a fun driving experience according to Skoda. Due to the new platform, Skoda’s designers were able to arrange the cabin in an interesting new layout, with a vibrant 13-inch display, high-end connectivity and a range of infotainment solutions.
