In this article, we review Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV and its world premier on 31st Jan 2022.
Enyaq iV is the all-electric series of Skoda, a Czech automaker that has been offering its vehicles to car lovers since 1925.
Enyaq iV Series
Launched in 2020, the Enyaq iV series was the company’s first step into the C-segment of SUVs with its full-electric variant.
Skoda is set to unveil the coupe version of the Enyaq iV on January 31st to provide customers with even more options.
The reason for this is that SUV sales have increased globally in recent years, and no brand wants to miss out on the huge profit margins that the segment has to offer.
Furthermore, complementing an SUV with an all-electric variant is a smart move that will allow Skoda to strengthen its position in the segment.
What Has Been Revealed So Far?
Skoda has announced the date for the world premiere, and a teaser video of the soon-to-be-released vehicle is trending all over the internet. Here is all the information provided by the company, so far.
The Stunning Front End
The video’s highlight is the new vehicle’s front end, which is said to have 131 LED lights glowing up the grille.
The video’s focus, as it should be, was on demonstrating how aerodynamic the new vehicle will be. This was demonstrated using smoothly flowing lines that depicted airwaves flowing seamlessly over the vehicle.
How Is It Different From Competitors
While the Skoda Enyaq iV has already received positive feedback from customers, the coupe variant will improve the SUV’s performance even further.
Lowest Drag Coefficient In The Segment
With a drag coefficient as low as 0.234, the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV will be the trendsetter in the segment by setting a standard for others to follow.
Such a low drag coefficient not only reflects the efforts put into the development of the vehicle but also promises exceptional results in terms of power consumption.
Low Power Consumption
Power consumption is especially important for an EV because such vehicles have a limited range before needing to be recharged, so every extra mile is appreciated by users.
The Rear-Dropping End Is Momentous
The vehicle’s rear end is the key contributor to the improved performance, as the coupe’s sloping rear end allows for smoother airflow.
While the actual performance figures will be available only after the new Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV has been put to the test on the road, it is being anticipated that the overall performance will put competitors in a tough spot.
The larger battery variant is expected to have a range of more than 535 kilometers. However, no official claim has been made as of yet.
Fast Charging Supported
Customers will be able to fast charge the vehicle, as with the Skoda Enyaq iV, to avoid the hassle of waiting for long periods.
How Is It Different From the VW ID.5?
While both the Enyaq and the ID.5 will be built on the same MEB (Modular Electrification Toolkit) platform, the two vehicles will be completely different, offering distinct driving experiences.
Here is how the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV and VW ID.5 differ from each other:
While the Enyaq Coupe iV will feature two battery options of 62 kWh and 82 kWh, the ID.5 will come with the standard 82 kWh battery.
This means that even the base model ID.5 might have more range as compared to the base variant of Enyaq Coupe iV.
The Skoda Enyaq is expected to be offered in three different motor options as follows:
– 130 kW;
– 150 kW;
– 195 kW.
However, the VW ID.5 offers different motor options but the top tier performance variant dubbed GTX will sport dual motors with power figures as high as 220 kW.
For now, no possibility of a dual-motor option on the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV exists.
Skoda is taking a step in the right direction by offering an SUV with sportier looks and better aerodynamics, making its presence in the all-electric SUV segment more stable.
