ŠKODA is breaking new ground in interior design with the ENYAQ iV, which celebrates its world premiere in Prague at the beginning of September,
with its individual Design Selections. The interior of the Czech car manufacturer’s first all-electric SUV reflects modern living environments. The Design Selections replace the previous equipment lines and feature natural, sustainably produced and recycled materials.
Norbert Weber, Head of Interior Design at ŠKODA, explains the new interior of the ENYAQ iV and its highlights in a video interview.
” The ENYAQ iV benefits from the MEB platform’s long wheelbase, which – in relation to the body dimensions – offers an exceptionally spacious interior. The flat floor, which lacks the central tunnel we find in vehicles with combustion engines, also contributes to this” Norbert Weber said .
The new design concept of the ENYAQ iV combines spaciousness and a ‘lounge feeling’. Instead of the usual equipment lines and numerous additional options, the ENYAQ iV will offer new Design Selections . These are reminiscent of modern living environments, featuring perfectly coordinating colours and materials , clearly structured option packages in various themes, with some separate options available for all models.
Since the ENYAQiV skips the central tunnel , this opens the doors to a multitude of design possibilities , like multi level storage compartments beneath the centre console . Thanks to the long wheelbase, rear passengers benefit from the extra space in front of the centre seat as well as the exceptionally generous legroom for the seats either side.The ENYAQ iV also offers a boot capacity of 585 litres.
” Clear, airy, innovative and sustainable. Clear thanks to how easy it is to configure the Design Selections and the theme packages, airy thanks to its roominess and excellent sense of space. Innovative thanks to features such as the 13-inch central screen and the new head-up display, including augmented reality, and sustainable thanks to the use of natural and recycled materials.” Mr. Weber said talking about the interiors of the ENYAQiV
Skoda is also going the sustainable way by up cycling and recycling , for instance , 60% of the blend of the seat covers is polyester from recycled PET bottles and the remaining 40& is new wool and bear the Woolmark Company’s seal. These covers have a unique feel and ensure a pleasant seating climate. Another example is the leather, which is produced in a particularly sustainable way, using an extract from olive tree leaves instead of chemicals for tanning.
More details will emerge when the ENYAQiV finally breaks cover in a couple of months .
