Following on from the SUV ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA is now offering another electric vehicle based on the all-electric MEB platform. The new ENYAQ COUPÉ iV is a sleeker and more dynamic alternative to the original version and will be made alongside it on the production line in the Mladá Boleslav factory. In this respect, both versions of the ENYAQ SUV are unique, as they are currently the only models based on the MEB platform being produced outside Germany.
ŠKODA offers innovative Design Selections and a clear menu of options available for the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV’s interior. The Design Selections are inspired by modern living environments and replace the classic trim levels. The style, colours and materials used are tastefully coordinated. In its basic configuration, the Design Selection ‘Loft’ presents itself as modern, homely and family-friendly. The combination of grey and black shades is timeless. Sustainable materials are available in other Design Selections. The seat covers in the Lodge Selection, for example, are made of 40% natural new wool with the Woolmark Company quality seal, and 60% polyester (each one is made from 318 recycled PET bottles). The cognac-coloured leather upholstery of the seats in the ecoSuite Selection is tanned through an eco-friendly and sustainable process using olive leaf extracts without the use of any chemicals.
The new ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV features an even more emotive design than the SUV variant. The panoramic glass roof, which is part of the standard equipment, slopes gently towards the rear from the B-pillar. At a length of 4,653 mm and measuring 1,617 mm in height, the coupé is four millimetres longer than the ENYAQ iV and one millimetre higher. At 1,879 mm and 2,765 mm respectively, the width and wheelbase of both models are identical, while the coupé’s 570-litre boot capacity is almost on a par with the SUV’s 585 l.
Large alloys measuring 19 to 21 inches emphasise the car’s powerful appearance. Full-LED Matrix headlights are optional. Within these, each high-beam module features 24 LEDs, which can be controlled individually and enable the driver to have the high beam on at all times without dazzling other road users. Full-LED rear lights are also optional. These feature a crystalline design and characterise the brand’s signature C-shaped light cluster and dynamic indicators. The Crystal Face, where a total of 131 LEDs illuminate the vertical slats and horizontal trim of the striking ŠKODA grille, is another option for the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV. The LED modules of the full-LED Matrix headlights for low beam and high beam, as well as the daytime running lights, create an animated welcome effect.
ŠKODA offers two battery sizes and three different power variants for the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV. The batteries are stored in the floor of the Volkswagen Group MEB car platform. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 60 is fitted with a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 62 kWh, of which 58 kWh net can be used. The electric motor produces 132 kW* and drives the rear wheels via a single-speed gearbox. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80 is also a rear-wheel drive, powered by an electric motor with an output of 150 kW*. When fitted with the larger 82-kWh battery pack (77 kWh net) and thanks to the car’s excellent aerodynamics boasting a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.247, this variant can cover more than 535 km – therefore offering the greatest mileage within the model range.
The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80x is equipped with the larger battery, which also powers a second, 80-kW electric motor on the front axle, providing this variant with all-wheel drive. Together, the two electric motors deliver a total of 195 kW**. Using an AC wall box of up to 11 kW – e.g. a ŠKODA iV charger – the brand-new coupé can be fully charged in six to eight hours. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV can also be charged at public DC fast-charging stations with an output of up to 125 kW. The iV universal charger – a mobile solution with interchangeable connector plugs – is available as an optional extra.
The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV will also be the first all-electric ŠKODA coupé available in a sporty RS version. The ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV is the pinnacle of ŠKODA’s range. The RS delivers a system output of 220 kW and 460 Nm of torque, and has the performance to match: acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 6.5 seconds and the top speed is 180 km/h, twenty kilometres per hour faster than the other model versions. The chassis of both the RS and SPORTLINE versions is 15 millimetres lower at the front and 10 millimetres lower at the rear.
The ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV comes with the unique 131 LED-illuminated Crystal Face radiator grille as standard, whereas on the other versions it is an option. In addition, the RS version boasts black contrasting elements such as the window trims or rear diffuser, while the SPORTLINE version also has a radiator grille in “piano finish”. The bezels on the standard versions have a chrome finish. Like all other ŠKODA RS models, the ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV has a red reflective strip in the rear bumper stretching across the entire width of the car. Incidentally, the rear bumper on the RS version has been endowed with a sportier look on the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV.
As standard, the ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV comes with black 20-inch Taurus wheels, with the option of anthracite 21-inch Vision wheels. These wheels have a special aerodynamic covering. The SPORTLINE version can have either anthracite 20-inch Vega wheels or optional 21-inch black Betria wheels. Customers will also be able to purchase the ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV in the exclusive Mamba green colour, while ŠKODA is also adding new colours to the catalogue for the standard version, such as the Graphite grey metallic that replaces Quartz.
The sporty versions are also equipped with Full LED Matrix headlights. Inside the RS version, for example, three-zone air conditioning is a standard feature (two-zone is standard on the others), and the car comes with progressive steering. Customers can then choose from two interior designs in the RS version.
In both cases, they get carbon décor on the dashboard and door panel trim, aluminium pedal covers and sports seats with integrated head rests and the RS logo. In the RS Lounge Design Selection trim, the seats are upholstered in Suedia with lime green contrast stitching and piping. The same colour accent can be found on the steering wheel or the floor mats and on the dashboard, which is also upholstered in Suedia. Optionally, customers can go for the RS Suite Design Selection with upholstery in perforated black leather with grey contrast stitching, with this colour combination reappearing on other elements in the interior. The SPORTLINE variant also has a distinctive interior design dominated by black Suedia material.
