Skoda launches Enyaq iV electric SUV, with 510-km range.

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 510 km* in the WLTP cycle, and brand-typical spaciousness. ŠKODA is continuing to develop its emotive design language - to this end, 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. One particular highlight is the exclusive ENYAQ iV Founders Edition, which is limited to 1,895 units and is commemorating the company’s anniversary celebrating 125 years of success.

Key Highlights:

  1. First MEB-based ŠKODA production model

  2. Rear- or all-wheel drive, three battery sizes and five power outputs ranging from 109 to 225 kW

  3. Long ranges of up to 510 km* in the WLTP cycle and quick charging

  4. Emotive and dynamic design language, striking ŠKODA grille with illuminated radiator grille as an option

  5. New Design Selection concept for the interior and brand-typical generous amounts of space for passengers and luggage

  6. Founders Edition limited to 1,895 units pays tribute to the company’s successful 125-year history

The ENYAQ iV boasts an all-new drive concept, exploiting the possibilities that Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform has to offer. The MEB consists of what is known as the skateboard platform, in which the battery is incorporated into the floor to save space. Three battery sizes, five power outputs ranging from 109 to 225 kW and rear- or all‑wheel drive cater to many different requirements and uses. With ranges of up to 510 km* in the WLTP cycle, the ENYAQ iV is an ideal everyday companion. Furthermore, it can tow trailers weighing up to 1,400 kg (8% gradient) or 1,200 kg (12% gradient).

The ENYAQ iV’s design language is emotive, powerful, and dynamic. The new SUV is characterized by perfect proportions and extraordinary spaciousness. It offers a similar amount of interior space as a ŠKODA KODIAQ, despite being shorter in length than a ŠKODA OCTAVIA. As optional extras, the illuminated Crystal Face – which comes with an animated Coming/Leaving Home function – and full LED Matrix headlights adorn the striking front sporting the large ŠKODA grille. The full LED taillights include dynamic indicators and also have an animated Coming/Leaving Home function.


New Design Selections replace the classic trim levels and set new standards for the interior. Each Design Selection, put together by ŠKODA material concept designers, provides a tasteful interior with an exceptional feel-good factor and features natural, sustainably processed, and recycled materials. A new, clearer structure of the choices available – ten themed packages as well as some individual options – makes it quick and easy to customise the vehicle to suit the owner’s taste.


The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV’s aerodynamics – which are outstanding for an SUV – allow for a high level of efficiency and, as a result, long ranges. This is also evident in the drag coefficient (cd) from 0.27, which is achieved with the help of tyres that boast a particularly low rolling resistance. A heat pump, which is used for the heating and air conditioning in the interior, is an optional extra for the electric SUV. A highly efficient heat pump system compresses refrigerant under high pressure. This produces heat, which is used to warm up the cold air flowing into the car. This way, approximately 3 to 4 kWh per 100 km less energy from the battery is used to power the high-voltage heater – meaning the range is up to 30 per cent greater than in electric vehicles without a heat pump in temperatures as low as -25°C.
