    ŠKODA offers ENYAQ iV 80 FestEVal equipped for festivals, camping and sustainable staycation adventures

    ŠKODA UK has created a one-off ENYAQ iV 80 FestEVal ideal for the summer season of festivals and sustainable staycation holidays. It features innovative camping additions including a boot-mounted camping box with an extendable bed and a luxury roof tent. Plus, campsite extras to provide zero-emission accommodation.

    The headline act inside the ENYAQ iV 80 FestEVal is an innovative boot-based camping unit made by Czech manufacturer, EGOE. The EGOE ‘box’ is one of the first of its size and fits perfectly into the ENYAQ iV’s spacious 585-litre boot. It simply slides out of the boot of the car on the campsite and has an integrated gas cooker, collapsible sink with tap and hose, preparation area and ample storage all included within.

    The flexibility and design of the unit allow the rear seats to still be usable on the move, and when parked up at the campsite, it provides one of two sleeping areas in the ENYAQ iV 80 FestEVal – one of the only electric cars with room for up to four people to sleep.

    The double bed frame can be put together in minutes, extending across the folded rear seats. The mattress cushions store on top of the box and provide comfortable in-car accommodation for two.

    The second sleeping space is in the streamlined roof tent. It offers additional sleeping quarters in a practical package. It’s easy-to-use accommodation is accessed via a ladder that is stored inside the tent box when closed. 

    The tent itself can be set up and taken down in just a couple of minutes and has netting inside for storage, a solar-powered fan and an integrated torch for enhanced comfort and convenience. The aerodynamic design aligns to the ENYAQ iV electric vehicle’s (EV’s) impressive streamline credentials (Cd 0.257), while still offering spacious sleeping room for two.

    Every element of the ENYAQ iV 80 FestEVal’s camping set-up is designed to be effortless. Space-saving camping chairs and table are set up and collapsed within seconds, ready for use as soon as campers arrive onsite. After the music has stopped onstage, campers can continue the party through the ENYAQ iV’s eight-speaker sound system, while interior ambient lighting provides additional atmosphere into the evenings.

    A permanent internet connection allows campers to make use of a Wi-Fi connection for up to eight devices, while in everyday driving ensures all information and systems are up to date. 

    Drivers can also make use of a connected app to schedule and control charging and cabin pre-conditioning. This makes the beginning or return journey a comfortable one whatever the weather. ŠKODA’s Air Care system ensures the air inside the cabin of the ENYAQ iV is as clean and pure as possible.

    We love that ŠKODA are offering this for travel at home, especially with the current problems at ports and airports around the UK. It offers a great way to explore and adventure wherever you decide to travel and do so in a more sustainable way, which is key in helping to reduce greenhouse gases.
