Aero-optimised SUV arrives with 82kWh battery and 539km of range.

Skoda has revealed the new Enyaq iV Coupe as its second all-electric model, following the launch of the straight-backed Enyaq SUV last year.

The Enyaq Coupe is effectively a sportily styled version of the existing Enyaq SUV and uses the same Volkswagen Group MEB platform.

It is 4mm longer and 6mm taller than its SUV sibling, but the main design difference is its more sharply raked roofline from the B-pillar backwards. Although that reduces boot space from 585 to 570 litres, it does contribute to a better drag coefficient of 0.234 and – along with the coupé’s lighter weight – marginally increases the EV’s range.

Whereas the Enyaq SUV is offered with two battery sizes, the Coupe will be available with only the larger, 77kWh (net) battery, capable of fast charging from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in 29 minutes.

The entry-level model gets a single rear motor, producing 150kW, and offers an official range of 546km. A twin-motor, all-wheel-drive version will also be available with a total output of 195kW.

It will also be the first electric model from the Czech firm to gain a hot RS performance version.

Although the Enyaq Coupe has a similar interior to the SUV’s, with the same 13.0-inch touchscreen and 5.3-inch digital cockpit, Skoda has introduced a number of bespoke design touches and two ‘design selections’. It is optionally available in a choice of two Coupé-specific paint shades: Phoenix Orange and Graphite Grey.

Skoda CEO Thomas Schäfer said the new model “brings even more emotiveness, sports styling and elegance to the ŠKODA iV family”, emphasising that it “perfectly combines emotion with efficiency, offering the Skoda-typical generous amounts of space, even in a particularly elegant body”.
