The retail launch has coincided with the release of a new video ad for the EV.
As WhichEV reported, the all-electric SUV will be based on the Volkswagen MEB platform and will be available in two variants: Enyaq iV 60 Nav and Enyaq iV 80 with 62kWh and 82kWh battery packs respectively.
The entry-level 62kWh battery model is equipped with a 180PS (132kW) motor that drives the rear wheels through a single-speed transmission with a WLTP range of up to 242 miles on a single charge. Alternatively, the larger 82kWh RWD model generates 204PS (150kW) and is capable of returning up to 316 miles on a single charge.
Instead of selecting from traditional trim levels, customers choose the battery size they need, select an interior design and then personalise their vehicle from a comprehensive range of equipment packs and individual options. The design selections available are Loft, Lodge, Lounge, Suite, ecoSuite and SportLine, all of which offer a different interior look and materials.
The Enyaq iV also comes with a new finance option. Lease&Care has been developed by Škoda Financial Services specifically for electric car buyers and is a personal lease that includes built-in aftersales packages in one monthly payment.
Enyaq iV customers choose an initial deposit, which can be as little as one monthly payment, choose their annual mileage and select their term of either 24, 36 or 48 months. Customers can then tailor their package by choosing one of three aftersales ‘care’ packages they would like: Small, Medium or Large.
The Small package covers a customer for essential servicing, which includes all routine manufacturer servicing, brake fluid changes, as well as dust and pollen filters. The Medium package adds all routine maintenance items, including brake, suspension and cooling system repairs, electric system maintenance, and all fluid top-ups, while the Large package includes tyre replacement and wheel alignment, puncture repair, geometry check and wheel balance.
As WhichEV reported, the first electric car ever made by Škoda has been awarded a top five-star rating by the Euro NCAP safety assessment programme, making it one of the safest vehicles currently on the market.
