ŠKODA AUTO has started series production of its new electric coupé.
The ENYAQ Coupé iV, which is expected to go on sale in late spring this year, will be manufactured at ŠKODA AUTO’s plant in Mladá Boleslav in the Czech Republic. The company aims to produce more than 120 vehicles a day.
Based on Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit, the ENYAQ Coupé iV combines sporty style with a spacious interior. Key features include a glass roof and a boot that can hold up to 570 litres. With a drag coefficient of cd 0.234, the ENYAQ Coupé iV is more efficient than the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV, and has a range of up to 339 miles.
Michael Oeljeklaus, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Production and Logistics, said: “We are taking it to the next level by launching production of the new ŠKODA ENYAQ Coupé iV.”
“It’s a great honour for the entire team that the coupé version of our successful electric SUV is also being produced at the heart of the brand, in Mladá Boleslav,” he added. The fully electric coupé will be produced alongside the ENYAQ iV, OCTAVIA and OCTAVIA iV model series at the Mladá Boleslave plant, which employees 2000 people.
ŠKODA AUTO has said that it wants to turn the Czech Republic into an “electromobility hub” and increase the brand’s share of all-electric models sold in Europe to between 50 and 70 per cent by 2030. The plans are a part of its NEXT LEVEL – ŠKODA STRATEGY 2030.
The car maker has also said that it is aiming to launch at least three more all-electric cars by 2030, adding that it’s future electric models will be smaller and cheaper than the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV.
