The new ŠKODA ENYAQ Coupé iV: electrifying, emotive and elegant

 The new ŠKODA ENYAQ Coupé iV makes a statement with its dynamic looks and sporty, elegant lines. It complements the multi award-winning ŠKODA ENYAQ iV, adding an even more emotive variant to the range. The ENYAQ Coupé iV vRS also marks the debut of the brand’s first all-electric member of the sporty vRS family. While the roofline gently slopes towards the rear from the B-pillar, the new coupé offers plenty of space in the rear and a boot capacity of 570 l. Just like in the ENYAQ iV, the classic trim levels for the interior have been replaced with the Design Selections. There is a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, and two power variants with outputs of 204* and 299 PS (vRS variant). The outstanding drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234 is even better than that of the ENYAQ iV and, depending on the specification, enables a range of more than 335 miles*** in the WLTP cycle.

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. Both variants 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.

Emotive design, dynamic appearance and the first electric vRS model
At first glance, the dynamically designed, four-door coupé is characterised by a roofline that gently slopes towards the rear from the B-pillar, merging with the tailgate that features a sharp trailing edge. The vehicle’s lines are further accentuated by a dark tinted panoramic glass roof, which comes as standard. It spans the entire roof and is the largest in the current ŠKODA portfolio. From the side, alloy wheels measuring between 19 and 21 inches and body-coloured side skirts emphasise the car’s sleek appearance. A sporty front apron provides another unique touch. In addition to the SportLine variant, the new coupé is also available as a vRS model, which makes it the first all-electric member of the vRS family from ŠKODA. This variant features the Crystal Face as standard – with 131 LEDs illuminating the ŠKODA grille’s vertical ribs and horizontal light strip. In terms of powertrain, two electric motors provide all-wheel drive and a system output of 299 PS**, enabling a particularly dynamic driving experience and a top speed of 111 mph – 12 mph more than any other ENYAQ iV model.

Two power variants and high levels of efficiency
There is a choice of two powertrain variants for the ENYAQ Coupé iV. Power output starts at 204 PS* with the rear-wheel-drive ENYAQ Coupé iV 80, which is equipped with an 82-kWh battery (net: 77 kWh). The ENYAQ Coupé iV vRS, uses a second motor on the front axle to provide all-wheel drive and produces 299 PS. Thanks to its outstanding aerodynamics and a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234, the new coupé is even more efficient than the excellent ENYAQ iV. Depending on the specification, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80 boasts a range of more than 335 miles*** in the WLTP cycle.

Plenty of passenger space, a 570-litre boot and Design Selections for the interior
Due to its composition and long wheelbase, the MEB platform opens up new possibilities regarding body proportions and design. As the voltage battery is fully incorporated in the underbody and electric vehicles don’t have a transmission tunnel, the space available for rear-seat passengers is also particularly generous. The ENYAQ Coupé iV’s boot measures a spacious 570 l. The interior is defined by the Design Selections which are inspired by modern living environments and use natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials, same as in the ENYAQ iV. The clear structure of the options available with packs arranged by ten themes and select individual choices mean the car can be configured in just six steps. Key vehicle functions can be operated intuitively using the 13-inch central infotainment screen. The 5.3-inch Digital Cockpit, which can be supplemented by a head-up display with augmented reality, allows the driver to keep an eye on the most important driving data and information on the vehicle status at all times.

* Maximum power output may not be fully available. The power available in individual driving situations depends on various factors, such as the ambient temperature, the charge level and the temperature, condition or age of the high-voltage battery.

** Maximum electrical power of 265 PS and 299 PS respectively: maximum power determined in accordance with UN-GTR.21 that can be called up for a maximum of 30 seconds. The power available in individual driving situations depends on various factors such as the external temperature, the high-voltage battery’s physical age as well as its temperature, charge level and conditioning state. Maximum power can only be available if, in particular, the high-voltage battery’s temperature is between 23 and 50°C and its charge level exceeds 88%. If these parameters are not met, maximum power may not be available. The battery temperature can – to a certain degree – be influenced indirectly via the stationary air conditioning function, and the charge level can be set in the vehicle. The power currently available is shown on the vehicle’s driving performance screen. To maintain the high-voltage battery’s capacity in the best possible way, we recommend setting a charging target of 80% for daily use (this can be changed to 100% before long-distance journeys, for example).
