Looking Back at the World Premiere of the New ŠKODA ENYAQ iV
As the most important model of the year for the brand, ŠKODA presented the ENYAQ iV to the global public in Prague. With a special performance from the rock band “Inhaler” accompanying the exclusive reveal, premiered with a virtual showroom and live studio for viewers to follow online. The virtual event gave customers exciting insights of the impressive new model, as well as a first-hand impression of the event. The new flagship of the ŠKODA model range is the manufacturer’s first production model based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit (MEB), making it something to behold.
“The launch of the ENYAQ iV sees the start of a new era for ŠKODA. This is our first all-electric car to be based on the MEB platform. By launching this model, we are making E-Mobility Simply Clever – with long ranges, quick charging, ease of operation and affordable prices. The ENYAQ iV is made in ŠKODA’s heartland, Mladá Boleslav, making our main plant the only production facility for MEB-based vehicles in Europe outside Germany. This is a great testament to ŠKODA’s expertise, and I would like to thank the entire team that got the ENYAQ iV rolling. It’s a great car and I’m really proud of the team.”
Thomas Schäfer, ŠKODA AUTO CEO
With the entry-level model of the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV offering practicality, sustainability and functionality for everyday family life, customers gained an insight into the generous amount of space and high level of functionality available in the new EV. The ENYAQ iV is also suitable for people with demanding driving habits, requiring maximum range and quick charging, as well as for customers with a dynamic driving style who expect optimal performance even from an electric SUV.
“The numerous possible combinations, for example in terms of battery sizes and power outputs, make the modular electric car platform a perfect technical basis for our all-electric vehicles. The MEB allows us to cater individually to our customers’ different needs and usage habits, and to develop even more technically innovative ŠKODA iVs in future.”
Christian Strube, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development
“In our ENYAQ iV, we have further advanced our ŠKODA-typical front section – a particularly distinctive feature of which is the Crystal Face. Combined with the emotive design language and a strikingly rugged appearance that is also reinforced by large wheels, our new ENYAQ iV is a real eye-catcher that sets a new tone.”
Oliver Stefani, Head of ŠKODA Design
In order to create such a striking electric SUV, ŠKODA designers have introduced holistically coordinated interior options based on modern living environments, offering personalisation in terms of the upholstery, decorative trims and dashboard as well as by using different materials. What’s more, depending on the chosen Design Selection, the floor mats, centre console and ambient lighting also have a different feel and appearance. The entry-level ENYAQ 50 iV includes the puristic Studio design, with multiple options also available. With ten different themed packaged available – and most coming in a basic and a more comprehensive Plus version, there is something for everyone.
