The Founders Edition and the ENYAQ RS iV are equipped with a Crystal Face, which includes a stunning, illuminated radiator grille, as standard. For the ENYAQ 80 iV and ENYAQ 80x iV, it is available as an option. The crystalline-look front of the ENYAQ iV is illuminated by 130 LEDs – a design highlight already seen in the ŠKODA VISION iV concept study. The Founders Edition is available in two engine/battery variants and two colours. It also comes with 21-inch alloys, sporty front and rear aprons and the ecoSuite Design Selection featuring sustainably tanned leather.
The entry-level version of the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is a practical and sustainable everyday family companion, providing a generous amount of space and high level of functionality. There is also a perfect ENYAQ iV for people who drive a lot looking for maximum range and quick charging, as well as for customers with a dynamic driving style who expect optimal performance even from an electric SUV.
In the ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA is making use of an all-new drive concept that nevertheless makes some reference to the company’s history: just as with many of the brand’s past models, ŠKODA is making use of rear-wheel drive for its new electric SUV too. The ENYAQ iV is a versatile partner for the daily commute as well as long distances. Its maximum range is 510 km* in the WLTP cycle and it has a superfast-charging capacity of up to 125 kW. The 82-kWh battery, which has a net capacity of 77 kWh, can be charged from 5 to 80 per cent in just 38 minutes* at correspondingly powerful DC charging points. At home, the ENYAQ iV can conveniently be ‘refuelled’ overnight using an AC wall box of up to 11 kW – depending on the battery size, this process takes six to eight hours. What’s more, the ENYAQ iV is equipped with a special iV universal charger that fits all conventional charging sockets.
Offering three battery sizes and five different power variants, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV makes driving both sustainable and fun. In addition to the one on the rear axle, the two most powerful models are also fitted with a second electric motor on the front axle that transfers the SUV’s torque of 425 and 460 Nm respectively to the road via all four wheels. The entry-level ŠKODA ENYAQ 50 iV is fitted with a 109-kW rear-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive; its maximum torque is 220 Nm. Its lithium-ion battery has a gross capacity of 55 kWh (52 kWh net) and it has a range of up to 340 km*. Equipped with a 62-kWh battery (58 kWh net), the 132-kW ENYAQ 60 iV can cover up to 390 km*; its maximum torque is 310 Nm.
The ENYAQ 80 iV has an output of 150 kW, torque of up to 310 Nm and, at 510 km* in the WLTP cycle, boasts the longest maximum range. The 82-kWh battery (77 kWh net) is also used in the two all-wheel-drive variants – combined with the second electric motor on the front axle, the ENYAQ 80x iV produces 195 kW and the ENYAQ RS iV delivers 225 kW. Both of these models have a range of 460 km*.
The range-topping ŠKODA ENYAQ RS iV is particularly fun to drive. It accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 180 km/h – 20 km/h faster than other power variants. In addition, the most powerful ENYAQ iV can tow a trailer weighing up to 1,400 kg; the SUV can be fitted with an electrically retractable tow bar as an optional extra.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV’s aerodynamics – which are outstanding for an SUV – allow for a high level of efficiency and, as a result, long ranges. This is also evident in the drag coefficient (cd) from 0.27, which is achieved with the help of tyres that boast a particularly low rolling resistance. A heat pump, which is used for the heating and air conditioning in the interior, is an optional extra for the electric SUV. A highly efficient heat pump system compresses refrigerant under high pressure. This produces heat, which is used to warm up the cold air flowing into the car. This way, approximately 3 to 4 kWh per 100 km less energy from the battery is used to power the high-voltage heater – meaning the range is up to 30 per cent greater than in electric vehicles without a heat pump in temperatures as low as -25°C.

With the Design Selections, ŠKODA designers have created holistically coordinated interior options based on modern living environments. These differ, for example, in terms of the upholstery, decorative trims and dashboard as well as by using different materials. Furthermore, depending on the chosen Design Selection, the floor mats, centre console and ambient lighting also have a different feel and appearance. The entry-level ENYAQ 50 iV starts with the puristic Studio design. The Loft option, which comes as standard for the ENYAQ 60 iV upwards, is based on modern, homely apartments for young families.
