Skoda is readying a new coupe version of its Enyaq iV with sleeker aerodynamics and better range
A new stylish fastback-look EV from Skoda called the Enyaq Coupe iV is coming soon – and the firm has given us our first preview of the new model.
The four-door Enyaq Coupe iV is set to arrive in early 2022 as a more head-turning alternative to the existing, well-acclaimed Enyaq iV SUV.
Skoda says it will be offered with three different power outputs, a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive – and adds the swoopy shape delivers even better aerodynamics.
The Enyaq Coupe iV’s lower drag coefficient Cd of 0.247 is better than the Enyaq iV SUV, which boosts the range of the top-spec model to more than 320 miles between charges.
“We have made a great start on the international market with our all-electric flagship Skoda Enyaq iV,” said Skoda CEO Thomas Schafer – who added more than 70,000 orders have already been placed.
“In early 2022, we will be upping the ante with the Enyaq Coupe iV: this variant of our e-SUV is even more emotive and presents a real design highlight, rounding off the top end of our model range.”
Mr Shafer revealed that even though it’s more design-led, the Enyaq Coupe iV doesn’t compromise in terms of space inside: it has ample space for five and even packs in an enormous 570-litre boot.
All Enyaq Coupe iV feature a standard panoramic glass roof, which swoops gently down from the central B-pillar rearwards to give a more coupe-style profile.
The car features alloy wheels measuring from 19-inches to 21-inches, and can be optioned with the distinctive Crystal Face already seen on the Enyaq iV SUV.
The range-topping, performance-focused Enyaq Coupe iV 80x builds on the recently-introduced SUV version: this has two motors and the largest 82kWh battery for a smart combination of performance, range and all-wheel traction.
As with the SUV, the Enyaq Coupe iV can also be charged at ultra-rapid DC charging stations too, at an output of up to 125kW.
