Following the successful launch of the all-electric ENYAQ iV SUV, ŠKODA is expanding its first model range based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform to include the ENYAQ Coupé iV.
The new ŠKODA ENYAQ Coupé iV is even more dynamic and sporty than the ENYAQ iV SUV variant. From the B-pillar, the roofline gently slopes to merge with the car’s stunning rear, featuring a trailing edge. The body-coloured side skirts and the black panoramic glass roof, which comes as standard, create distinctive visual highlights. The range-topping ENYAQ Coupé iV vRS sports black design features and the vRS-typical red reflector strip at the rear. This variant also comes with the Crystal Face as standard, which illuminates the striking ŠKODA grille with 131 LEDs.
Like the ENYAQ iV, the ENYAQ Coupé iV also incorporates the new Design Selections. They are inspired by modern living environments and feature perfectly coordinated colours and materials, replacing the classic trim levels. The Lodge and ecoSuite designs also use sustainable materials. There’s a model-specific Design Selection for the ENYAQ Coupé iV 80 SportLine and ENYAQ Coupé iV vRS models. Option packs arranged by ten themes and select individual preferences round off the clear structure of the choices available. It takes just six steps to fully configure a brand-new ŠKODA ENYAQ Coupé iV.
There are two powertrain variants for the ENYAQ Coupé iV, with outputs of 204 PS* and 299 PS**. Entry-level model is equipped with a rear motor for rear-wheel-drive, while the vRS features two electric motors driving all four wheels. The outstanding aerodynamics boasting a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234 also contribute to high levels of efficiency, enabling a range of more than 335 miles*** in the WLTP cycle. This, as well as the ENYAQ Coupé iV’s fast-charging capability, means that the car is perfectly suitable for long distances.
ŠKODA has focused on sustainable materials for the new ENYAQ Coupé iV, particularly recycled plastics, metals and glass to conserve natural resources. 13.1 kg of the plastics are recycled, as is 40% of the steel and 60% of the aluminium. In the Design Selection ‘Lodge’, the seat covers bear the Woolmark Company quality seal: they are made of 40% natural new wool and 60% recycled PET bottles. In the Design Selection ‘ecoSuite’, ŠKODA uses leather that is tanned in an eco-friendly process, using olive leaf extracts.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ Coupé iV offers an equally high level of active and passive safety as the ENYAQ iV. It has been awarded the highest-possible rating of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash safety reference tests and was named the safest vehicle in its category. Assistance systems have been further improved and, in their latest generation, use online-backed swarm data. The optional head-up display with augmented reality projects information onto the windscreen in clear view for the driver, while clever assistance systems warn of potential collisions or make parking more convenient, for example. If part of the specification, full-LED Matrix headlights provide even greater safety when visibility is poor.
Both the ENYAQ iV SUV and the ENYAQ Coupe iV will roll off the production line at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making them the only MEB-based models within the Volkswagen Group in Europe to be manufactured outside of Germany.
