Series Production Of The Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe Starts

The Skoda brand name has been around for almost a century. However, it has never been able to get in the limelight.

This is primarily because, while the automaker provides a wide range of options, none appear to be overly imposing.

Is The Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe Any Different?

So is the newly launched Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe the first of its type? Is it the vehicle this brand had always needed but never got before this?

Here we delve into the specifics to see what is special about the Enyaq iV Coupe and more importantly, is it any different from what the brand has become synonymous with.

The pricing of €61,691 makes the vehicle quite expensive which puts the Enyaq iV Coupe in the domain of the absolute best vehicles that are available at this price point. It is even more expensive than the Tesla Model Y.

Is It A Good Rival To The German Vehicles?

I would say that the company has just made an attempt to follow the trend of German rivals by offering a Coupe SUV version but is it even half as attractive?

Well, I dare say no because while many German luxury automakers have a predefined audience, willing to pay massive amounts, the Skoda simply isn’t considered that striking.

The Design Is Fascinating

One thing that I’ll give to the Enyaq iV coupe is an intelligent design language.

The boot space of the vehicle is only 15 liters lesser than the standard variant. Besides this, the headroom for the rear passengers isn’t too bad either.
How Does The Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe Drive?

Driving the Enyaq iV Coupe is not an exhilarating experience by any standards.

The vehicle does have the instant push of EVs but the 2200 kg body of the vehicle doesn’t seem too convinced to give the drivers any sporty feeling whatsoever.

The Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe’s Sales May Benefit From A Chip Shortage

The chip shortage issue has wreaked havoc on the global automotive community.

Vehicle prices are reaching new highs, and delivery dates are being pushed forward one after the other. Under such a situation, some people might feel convinced to buy the latest Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe.

However, I am sure that in a not-so-struggling market, this coupe variant won’t be able to get much attention.

Which Vehicle Would Give It The Toughest Time?

I feel that the biggest competition of the Enyaq iV Coupe will be its own standard variant.

I say so because that vehicle has been around for quite some time now and has been killing the competitors.

Final Verdict

To me, the Enyaq iV Coupe seems a halfhearted attempt from the company and that too while the standard variant of the vehicle is already performing exceptionally well.
