Like the ENYAQ iV, the new ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV is also based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. The coupé is 4,653 mm long and 1,879 mm wide. Its height is 1,622 mm while its wheelbase measures a generous 2,765 mm. The sporty lines ensure outstanding aerodynamics boasting a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234. Large alloys measuring 19 to 21 inches emphasise the car’s athletic look. The launch of the coupé also sees two new colour options added to the ENYAQ iV range: the striking metallic Phoenix Orange and metallic Graphite Grey, which replaces ŠKODA’s metallic Quartz Grey. Mamba Green is exclusively reserved for the ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV.
As with the SUV, the interior of the ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV is characterised by the new Design Selections. They are based on modern living environments and follow a certain style for the upholstery, decorative trims, dashboard and materials. The entry-level specification for the new coupé is the Design Selection ‘Loft’, presenting a modern and homely feel with easy-to-clean materials and a harmonious combination of grey and black shades.The Design Selections have been inspired by modern living environments. The style, colours and materials used, some of which are particularly sustainable, are perfectly aligned. For the ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV, there are two model specific designs on offer. Ten intelligent packages as well as some individual options make it possible to fully configure a brand-new ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV in just six steps.
Just like the ENYAQ iV, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV is available with a rear motor and rear-wheel drive or with two motors and all-wheel drive. There’s a choice of two sizes for the battery placed in the vehicle’s underbody. The entry-level variant is the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 60. Its rear motor is incorporated into the rear axle and drives the rear wheels with an output of 132 kW* and a maximum torque of 310 Nm. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 62 kWh, of which 58 kWh can be used. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80 features a larger battery, which has a capacity of 82 kWh (77 kWh net) providing a maximum range of up to 545 km*** in the WLTP cycle. The electric motor in the rear delivers 150 kW* and 310 Nm of torque.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV features a head-up display with augmented reality, full-LED Matrix headlights and a high level of passive safety with up to nine airbags. Travel Assist 2.5 provides support with longitudinal and lateral steering, while other clever assistance systems warn of potential collisions or make parking more convenient. The head-up display provides the driver with even more targeted information so they don’t have to take their eyes off the road, while the full-LED Matrix headlights provide greater safety when visibility is poor, allowing the driver to leave the high beam on at all times.
The latest software version ME 3 brings updates to the infotainment and head-up display, as well as improved battery management. The largest ŠKODA touchscreen, measuring 13 inches, and the 5.3-inch Digital Cockpit come as standard in the new coupé. The permanent internet connection enables the use of the ŠKODA Connect online services, many of which are specifically designed for an electric vehicle. The features included allow battery charging or the interior’s air conditioning to be controlled remotely via the MyŠKODA app.
Remains to be seen if Skoda brings its all electric range to India.
