Overview


Skoda Auto, more commonly referred to as Skoda, is headquartered in the Czech Republic. The company was established in 1895.  In 1991, the company become part of the German automotive group, Volkswagen. Skoda vehicles are sold in over 100 countries.

Skoda is committed to an electrification strategy, to include, launching up to 10 electric vehicles, with 6 pure-electric models by 2025.  According to the company, “By 2022, we will be investing a full two billion Euros into eMobility and new mobile services. These investments encompass new products and the production, purchase, quality and launch of new electric vehicles.”

The Citigo-e IV is the first all-electric vehicle from Skoda targeted at the urban consumer. Order books for this BEV opened in December 2019. The all-electric SKODA ENYAQ iV is the first pure electric SUV from SKODA. The e-SUV went on sale in 2020. The SKODA electric vehicles range includes:

The All-Electric Skoda ENYAQ Coupé iV


The Skoda ENYAQ iV is Skoda’s first pure electric SUV and second battery-electric vehicle (BEV). The EV uses the Volkswagen Group’s MEB EV platform (the Volkswagen all-electric ID.3 uses the same platform). The nameplate has been derived from the Irish name ‘Enya’, which means ‘source of life’. The ‘E’ refers to electromobility and the ‘Q’ characterising the final letters of SKODA’s SUV family.

Without an iota of doubt, the Skoda Enyaq electric SUV has much to offer families and company-car drivers keen to migrate to electric driving. The EV is available as a conventional SUV body style and also as a coupé-SUV body style.

The key difference between the tradition SUV and the Coupé-SUV, is the sloping roof at the rear of the electric vehicle (EV). The Enyaq Coupé has a slightly lower height. The Coupé is more suitable for consumers seeking a sportier exterior styling, while the traditional SUV is more appropriate for consumers keen on interior space and practicality. The rear headroom in the Coupé is impacted by the more aggressive exterior styling.

The ENYAQ Coupé EV is available in one EV battery size (82 kWh), with a claimed pure electric range up to 323 miles (WLTP). Even adjusting for real-world driving conditions, the EV should be able to deliver over 275 miles on a fully charged EV battery. More than adequate for city and longer distance motorway driving.

The Skoda Enyaq EV incorporates a single-phase (7.2 KW AC) onboard charger as standard. Given that the majority of homes in the UK have single-phase power supply, the single-phase onboard charger is appropriate. The EV can be fully charged in 13 hours using a dedicated residential EV charger like easee. Though the electric car can be charged via a domestic 3-PIN socket, we at e-zoomed discourage the use of a domestic socket to charge an electric car.

We at e-zoomed recommend charging overnight when the electricity prices are lower. We also recommend charging on a regular basis. This way charging times are reduced and regular charging is good for the long-term maintenance of the onboard EV battery. Skoda offers a 8 years/ 100,000 miles warranty. The Skoda ENYAQ Coupé iV also offers DC charging capability up to 135 kW DC. The EV battery can be charged 10%-80% in 36 minutes. Just enough time for a short motorway break.

For those with access to only 50 kW DC charging, the 82 kWh EV battery will take up to 70 minutes to achieve a 80% charge. Though these DC charging speeds are adequate, it is worth noting that some of the newer pure electric cars are offering even faster DC charging capability.

The manufacturer offers the following features and technology. Some as standard, others as options: adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, blind spot detection, lane assist, rear view camera, keyless entry and start/stop system, tri-zone climate control, panoramic glass roof and more.

The Skoda Enyaq Coupé all-wheel drive (AWD) achieves 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds (max power: 299 PS/ torque: 460 Nm). The top speed of the EV is 111 mph. Of course, the electric car also benefits from instant torque.

Company-car drivers can take advantage of the lower Benefit-in-Kind (BiK-2%) tax charge for pure electric cars. You can lease the Skoda ENYAQ Coupé iV electric SUV via e-zoomed at fantastic prices. Simply follow this link!
