With the new Enyaq iV, ŠKODA is also launching a clear new product range structure and an innovative interior concept as it enters the era of electric mobility. The all-electric Enyaq iV sports utility vehicle is the Czech manufacturer’s first production model based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB) electric platform. It combines innovative technologies with a progressive and emotive design language. The Enyaq iV will also offer the brand’s customisable ‘Design Selections’ choice of interiors that are oriented towards modern living environments.
The Enyaq iV is being produced at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the only MEB model in Europe being produced outside of Germany. In addition to locally emission-free drivetrains, ŠKODA are committed to sustainability. In the interior of the Enyaq iV, this is underlined by the use of leather tanned without chemicals with an extract from olive leaves, as well as upholstery made from a blend of virgin wool and polyester from recycled PET bottles.
The blend of 60 percent recycled polyester and 40 per cent virgin wool also ensures a pleasant seating climate. Wool is one of the most moisture-absorbent natural fibres. It has a cooling effect, is breathable and also filters out pollutants and odours from the surrounding air. The virgin wool used is independently tested and certified according to the Woolmark Company’s strict assessment criteria. The seat covers carry the Wool Blend Performance label for products that contain between 30 and 49.9 per cent virgin wool.
The new Enyaq iV will be available in 10 uniquely coordinated ‘Design Selections’ attuned to different lifestyles ranging from modern or luxurious to sporty. Depending on the battery size, drivetrain and model variant, customers can choose from up to five of these living worlds. Customisation options are grouped into 11 theme packages, and several features and services are available for all trim levels.
Kateřina Vránová, head of colour and trim design at ŠKODA, said: “For many people, their car is just as personal a place as their own home, where they spend a lot of time and want to feel comfortable. Just as with a person’s home, tastes vary greatly. With the Design Selections, we draw inspiration from these living worlds, transfer them to the Enyaq iV and extend that at-home feeling to the vehicle.”
