The Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV electric SUV comes with 2 battery pack options
Skoda has recently officially revealed the Enyaq Coupe iV electric SUV that also gets an ‘RS’ variant, the Czech brand’s first such model in all-electric form.
Based on the MEB platform, the Enyaq Coupe iV is pitched as a sleeker and more dynamic alternative to the Enyaq iV. Naturally, the primary differentiating factor is the presence of a sloping roof.
At the rear, the windscreen is new and so is the boot lid and bumper. But, when looked closely, it is evident that the design of many elements below the sharply articulated edge is identical between both versions of the Enyaq iV.
The electric vehicle (EV) comes fitted as standard with a glass roof, full-LED lights and rides on wheels ranging between 19 and 21 inches in size.
On the other hand, the range-topping Enyaq Coupe RS iV has an LED-illuminated radiator grille, black exterior elements (window trims, rear diffuser), mildly different front bumper and a red reflective strip in the rear bumper.
Available with 20-inch wheels as standard (21-inch rims are optional), the car comes with a lowered ride height and LED Matrix headlights.
Not much has changed on the inside. But, while customers of the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV electric SUV get the same interior themes as the Enyaq iV, people opting for the Coupe RS iV will get different seat upholstery.
The dash and door decor are also new and, furthermore, the RS version will come with 3-zone air-conditioning, progressive steering, sports seats, aluminium pedal covers too.
Skoda says the EV will come with 2 battery options – 62 kWh (58 kWh usable) and 82 kWh (77 kWh usable). The base Enyaq Coupe iV 60 uses the smaller battery and has a 132 kW (177 BHP) electric motor and rear-wheel drive.
The rear-wheel drive ’80’ with 150 kW (201 BHP), all-wheel drive ’80x’ grade with 195 kW (261 BHP) and 425 Nm of torque and the all-wheel drive RS with 220 kW (295 BHP) and 460 Nm all have the bigger battery.
According to the carmaker, it is the ’80’ grade that offers the most range – up to 545 km (claimed) – of the lot, while the RS is the fastest with 180 km/hr top speed (20 km/hr more than other grades) and a 0-100 km/hr sprint time of 6.5 seconds.
Depending upon the battery chosen, Skoda says between 6-8 hours will be needed to charge the pack through a 11 kW AC wallbox. Since the car also supports up to 135 kW of fast charging, even the 82 kWh battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in 29 minutes (claimed).
