ŠKODA will officially open its order books on 10 March 2021 in the UK for the all-new Enyaq iV, which is the brand’s first purpose-built battery electric vehicle. It’s based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB) and the all-electric sports utility vehicle is offered with two battery size options, a new range structure and a new finance offering with Lease&Care.
The new Enyaq iV introduces a new way for customers to tailor the car to their requirements. Instead of selecting from traditional trim levels, customers choose the battery size they need, select an interior design and then personalise their vehicle from a comprehensive range of equipment packs and individual options.
From launch, the range consists of two variants, the Enyaq iV 60 Nav and Enyaq iV 80, that feature 62kWh and 82kWh battery packs respectively. Along with this there are five interrupt designs, including Loft, Lodge, Lounge, Suite and ecoSuite, all of which offer a different interior look and materials.
The entry-level Enyaq iV 60 Nav comes with a 62kWh battery powering a 180PS (132kW) motor that drives the rear wheels through a single-speed transmission. It has a combined range of up to 256 miles (412km) from a single charge. The price of this model starts at £31,085 OTR (including plug-in government grant (PIGC).
The larger battery Enyaq iV 80, which comes with the 82kWh battery, generates 201 horsepower (150kW) and is capable of returning up to 333 miles (536km) from a single charge. The cost of this bigger battery model is £35,950 OTR (PIGC). The range of both models have been enhanced by the Enyaq iV’s class-leading aerodynamic design.
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 only) DC charge rates as options.
The Enyaq iV offers three charging options. In addition to using a standard household 230V socket with 2.3kW alternating current (AC), it can be charged at home overnight using a wallbox of up to 7.2kW. Depending on the battery size, a full charge with a 7.2kW wallbox takes approximately 9.5 hours for the 62kWh and approximately 13 hours for the 82kWh.
The third charging option is to connect to a rapid DC charger up to 125 kW. With this Enyaq iV 60 Nav can be charged up to 80 percent in as little as 35 minutes, while the Enyaq iV 80 takes just three minutes longer.
The Enyaq iV also comes with a new finance option that gives owners even greater peace of mind. Lease&Care has been developed by Volkswagen Financial Services specifically for electric car buyers and is a personal lease that includes built-in aftersales packages in one monthly payment. Customers can tailor their drive for the Enyaq iV 60 for as little as £393 per month with an annual mileage of 10,000 miles (16,000km).
