Skoda Enyaq iV (2020) Review
Skoda Enyaq iV (2020) At A Glance
The new Skoda Enyaq iV will have a range of up to 316 miles and a starting price of £30,450 when it goes on sale later this year.
The electric SUV shares Volkswagen's MEB platform with the upcoming ID.4 electric SUV and is priced in-line with the likes of the Kia e-Niro and Peugeot e-2008. It's closer in size to the Jaguar I-Pace and Ford Mustang Mach-E, though.
Buyers will have a choice of two battery sizes: 62kWh (badged the iV 60) or 82kWh (badged the iV 80). The entry-level 62kWh model is equipped with a 180PS electric motor which powers the rear wheels. It can travel for up to 242 miles on a single charger.
The 82kWh model, which is also rear-wheel drive, uses a 204PS motor and can cover up to 316 miles between charges.
All Enyaq iV models will have a minimum DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard. Customers can specify higher 100kW (for 62kWh battery) and 125kW (for 82kWh battery) DC charge rates as options.
In addition to using a standard household 230V socket with 2.3 kW alternating current (AC), the Enyaq iV can be charged at home overnight using a wallbox of up to 7kW. Depending on the battery size, the charging process takes six to eight hours.
When you're out and about, the Enyaq iV can be connected to rapid DC charging points with a charging capacity of up to 125kW. This allows the Enyaq iV to be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in less than 40 minutes.
The Enyaq iV, which starts from £30,450 (including the Government's £3000 Plug-in Car Grant), comes with an extensive list of standard equipment. This includes 19-inch alloy wheels, a 13-inch media system and rear parking sensors. The interior features Skoda's 'Loft' interior trim, including fabric/artificial leather seat coverings and brushed aluminium door panels.
An interior design pack called Suite is available for an extra £1285. This adds leather seats and piano black decor. The Lounge pack, meanwhile, is priced at £1115 and adds light grey leather with mustard yellow stitching.
The more powerful Enyaq iV 80 starts from a post-grant £35,950 and adds chrome detailing, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera. Further standard kit includes a heated steering wheel (with paddles for adjusting the level of regenerative braking), as well as selectable drive modes and navigation.
Available at launch, an Enyaq iV 80 Founders Edition will be available for £46,995. This brings with it 125kW DC charging, 21-inch alloy wheels, an illuminated front grille with LED Crystal face and Matrix LED headlights. It also features a black leather interior design pack as standard.
