A Skoda não constrói um veículo com tração traseira desde o início dos anos 90, quando a série 105/120/125 de modelos com tração traseira e motor traseiro foi descontinuada para dar lugar ao Favorit, com o motor e tração dianteiros. A marca de Mladá Boleslav está voltando às suas raízes, mas com um powertrain elétrico, pois o Enyaq iV trocou o motor de combustão por um motor elétrico.
Enquanto o urbaninho Citigo iV ficará na história como o primeiro elétrico da Skoda, o Enyaq iV será realmente o primeiro modelo a ser desenvolvido desde o início como veículo elétrico. Ele será montado na plataforma MEB da Volkswagen e assumirá a forma de variante Skoda do VW ID.4. A montadora tcheca agora inicia a divulgação de teasers compartilhando imagens de protótipos camuflados.

A Skoda também está sendo bastante generosa com as especificações técnicas à medida que em que tomamos conhecimento sobre as dimensões do Enyaq: 4.648 mm de comprimento, 1.877 mm de largura e 1.618 mm de altura, com uma generosa distância entre eixos de 2.765 mm e uma capacidade de carga de 585 litros sem rebater os bancos traseiros. Não é de surpreender que tenha aproximadamente as mesmas dimensões que seu primo VW.
O Enyaq iV estará disponível com três opções de bateria, começando com o pacote de 55 kWh oferecendo 340 km de autonomia pelo ciclo WLTP. Esta versão base tem tração traseira e vem com um motor elétrico montado na traseira, desenvolvendo 148 cv (109 kW). Adote o modelo intermediário e você terá uma bateria maior de 62 kWh com energia suficiente para 390 km, alimentando um motor elétrico traseiro produzindo 180 cv (132 kW).
Se você deseja ainda mais autonomia, a variante de tração traseira com a bateria de 82 kWh é a melhor opção, pois oferece 500 quilômetros entre cada recarga e produz 203 cv (150 kW) a partir de sua montagem traseira.
A Skoda também projetou o Enyaq para acomodar um layout de tração nas quatro rodas com motores elétricos duplos, um na frente e outro atrás, com 264 cv (195 kW) ou um invocado de 306 cv (225 kW). Este último é efetivamente o carro de produção mais potente da empresa em todos os tempos e com o justo título de modelo "RS". Ele fará a arrancada de 0 a 100 km/h em respeitáveis 6,2 segundos antes de chegar a 180 km/h. Ambos os utilitários esportivos de tração integral cobrirão 460 quilômetros.
Os proprietários poderão carregar a bateria através de uma tomada doméstica convencional com saída CA de 2,3 kW ou usando um Wallbox que fornece até 11 kW. O Enyaq está sendo desenvolvido para suportar o carregamento rápido com uma saída de 125 kW; nesse caso, a bateria pode ser recarregada de 10% a 80% em apenas 40 minutos.
Embora as imagens internas não tenham sido fornecidas, as capturamos na lente alguns meses atrás. A Skoda diz que seu SUV elétrico possui uma tela sensível ao toque de 13" e tem como opcional uma tela frontal que suporta realidade aumentada. Pela primeira vez em um carro de produção, o Enyaq usará couro de oliva como parte dos esforços da empresa para usar materiais mais sustentáveis em todo o interior.
O Skoda Enyaq será construído na unidade da empresa em Mladá Boleslav a partir do final de 2020 e estará à venda no início do próximo ano. Uma sofisticada "Founder's Edition” estará disponível em 1.895 unidades, com um visual ligeiramente diferente e equipamentos generosos para marcar o nascimento da marca, 125 anos atrás.
Surprising, practical and Simply Clever: the ENYAQ iV embodies electromobility à la ŠKODA
First ŠKODA production model based on the MEB electric car platform
› Rear- or four-wheel drive, a range of up to 500* km and excellent driving performance
› Three battery sizes, five power variants and fast-charging option for even shorter charging times
› Emotive design, plenty of space, 13-inch display and state-of-the-art connectivity
Mladá Boleslav, 7 May 2020 – Emotive, efficient, electrifying: the new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV marks a pioneering step forward in the Czech carmaker’s electromobility strategy. The first ŠKODA production model based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform combines brand-typical virtues such as a generous amount of space and an emotive design with fun yet sustainable driving. There is a choice of three battery sizes and five power variants, depending on requirements. The all-electric SUV is set to be built at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the first MEB-based Volkswagen Group vehicle in Europe to be produced outside Germany.
ŠKODA AUTO CEO, Bernhard Maier, said, “The ENYAQ iV marks the beginning of a new era for ŠKODA, it is the figurehead of our E-Mobility campaign. With it, we’re making E-Mobility Simply Clever thanks to long ranges and short charging times. At the same time, the ENYAQ iV takes ŠKODA-typical virtues such as superior interior space, a trendsetting design and maximum functionality to a new level. Our first all-electric e-model based on Volkswagen Group’s modular electric car platform will be built at our main plant in Mladá Boleslav, at the heart of ŠKODA. This is an important step towards securing the future of the location and safeguarding jobs in the region.”
The new ENYAQ iV is a typical ŠKODA, but with a completely new drive concept. The Czech manufacturer’s first production model based on the MEB modular electric car platform is also ideally suited for long-distance journeys as it boasts long ranges of up to 500* km in the WLTP cycle and fast charging. Due to the vehicle’s concept, the designers were able to arrange the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV’s interior in a completely new manner. This results in even more space for passengers and their luggage despite the car’s compact dimensions, whilst also presenting a look that is as emotive as it is modern. In addition, the ENYAQ iV offers state-of-the-art connectivity as well as infotainment solutions and ŠKODA-typical Simply Clever features.
The Czech carmaker’s first electrified SUV is 4,648 mm long, 1,877 mm wide and has a height of 1,618 mm; it has a wheelbase of 2,765 mm and a boot capacity of 585 l. The loading sill, which is set low for an SUV, enables effortless loading, even of heavy or bulky items.

The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV will be the first MEB-based Group vehicle in Europe to roll off the production line outside of Germany. It is set to be built at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav sharing a line with models that are based on the MQB platform.
The vehicle’s world premiere will also mark the start of advance sales; serial production of the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV will start at the end of 2020. Its market launch is scheduled to take place at the beginning of 2021. A ‘Founder’s Edition’ equipped with special features and a different look will be limited to 1,895 units, commemorating the founding of the company 125 years ago.
In the entry-level versions, a rear motor drives the rear wheels, thus building a technical bridge to the history of the car manufacturer. The more powerful versions feature a second electric motor at the front to transmit torque to the road even more efficiently. In its most powerful variant, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV can even tow loads of up to 1,200 kg if required. A total of five different power variants and three battery sizes provide fun yet sustainable driving. Depending on the version chosen, either the rear wheels or all four wheels are driven. Thanks to highly efficient batteries, the low rolling resistance tyres (5.9 per mille) and aerodynamics that are outstanding for an SUV (cd starting from 0.27), the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV can cover ranges of up to 500* km in the WLTP cycle.
Christian Strube, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development, said, “The many possibilities of the modular electric car platform allow us to offer the perfect ENYAQ iV for a wide range of requirements and applications. This includes an entry-level version for families, which offers a lot of space and functionality, a variant for the long-distance driver for whom the greatest range is key, and a model for the customer with sporting ambitions who is looking for maximum performance even in an electric SUV.”
The entry-level model is the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 50; its lithium-ion battery has a gross capacity of 55 kWh (net: 52 kWh). The rear-mounted electric motor has an output of 109 kW, offering a maximum range of up to 340* km. This increases up to 390* km in the 132-kW ENYAQ iV 60 fitted with a 62-kWh battery (net: 58 kWh). The rear-wheel-drive ENYAQ iV 80 delivering 150 kW has the highest range of up to 500* km in the WLTP cycle. Its 82-kWh battery (net: 77 kWh) is also used by the two versions equipped with a second electric motor and thus all-wheel drive: the 80X and the vRS, which deliver 195 kW and 225 kW respectively. The top-of-the-range model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds and has a top speed of 180 km/h. The maximum range of both all-wheel-drive variants is up to 460* km.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV can be charged in three different ways. In addition to the conventional 230-volt household plug socket with an AC output of 2.3 kW, the vehicle can also be conveniently topped up overnight at home using a wall box delivering up to 11 kW. This takes six to eight hours depending on the size of the battery. DC fast-charging stations with a charging output of 125 kW are the third option. These can recharge the ENYAQ iV’s battery from 10% to 80 per cent in just 40 minutes*.
A highlight of the new ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is its innovatively designed interior, which conveys an all-new feeling of spaciousness. The vehicle also offers state-of-the-art connectivity and infotainment solutions: The driver is shown all of the relevant information via a free-standing, 13-inch central display and, if desired, a head-up display with augmented reality. A permanent Internet connection ensures that all information is always up-to-date. With its generous amount of space, which exudes a lounge-like character, and a 585-litre boot, the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is ideal for families and lifestyle-oriented customers looking for an electric vehicle that is both sustainable and fully suitable for everyday use. With the introduction of the ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA is also introducing a new concept for the interior: sustainable materials such as olive leather are used for the first time in a production car. Customers can also opt for other designs to suit their preferences.
Electrified vehicles from the ŠKODA iV family are a perfect blend of practical range, emotive design and great driving fun. On top of that, they are comfortable, quiet and sustainable, whilst also boasting particularly dynamic power delivery. The torque of an electric motor is available straight away, meaning cars can accelerate continuously and consistently without requiring any gear changes. State of-the-art connectivity featuring extensive vehicle networking and advanced assistance systems are as much a part of what a ŠKODA iV has to offer as excellent value for money and an even more spacious interior conveying a new lounge-like character.
By introducing the ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA is pressing ahead with its electromobility campaign, which began at the end of 2019 with the CITIGOe iV and the SUPERB iV. As part of the brand’s strategy, more than ten electrified iV models are scheduled to be launched between 2019 and the end of 2022. 125 years after the company was founded, ŠKODA has entered the era of E-Mobility and is making it a central component of its DNA, and – now that electrified vehicles can offer ranges suitable for everyday use at affordable prices and charging infrastructures are continuously being improved – the timing could not be better.
As part of the largest investment programme in the company’s history to date, ŠKODA AUTO will have fed a total of two billion euros into the development of electrified models and the creation of a comprehensive ecosystem for new mobility solutions by 2021. For its development from a traditional car manufacturer into the ‘Simply Clever company for the best mobility solutions’, sustainability plays an important role in production, sales as well as service.
