Skoda wants to be a part of the electric movement in India. The Czech automaker is planning to launch its all-electric coupe the Skoda Enyaq EV. Skoda has seen great success in various segments through its India 2.0 project. However, the EV market remains untapped by the automaker. This has led to bringing the Enyaq EV as a completely built unit to be an early participant in India’s EV market.
Skoda Enyaq EV: styling and dimension
The Enyaq EV gets a bold and aggressive exterior styling. Exterior highlights of the SUV include sharp headlamps, crisp body lines, LED-backlit front grille, and large wheels. Moreover, Enyaq is 4,649mm long, 1,879mm wide, and 1,616mm tall. The SUV comes with a 2,765 mm long wheelbase, and 585 litres of boot space. Skoda claims that the Enyaq has best in class aerodynamics with a drag coefficient of 0.234.
Inside the cabin, the interior is covered with fabric and artificial leather soft-touch surfaces everywhere. A large touchscreen floating infotainment system is placed at the center of the multi-layered dashboard. Skoda Enyaq is sold in six different interior styles in the global market. However, we will have to see if the same options will be available in the Indian variant.
The Enyaq Coupe features the same battery pack as the standard unit. Moreover, the enhanced aero will help the car with a better range of over 536km (with the large 77kWh battery pack). The smaller 58kWh battery pack provides a range of 418km in a single charge.
The Standard Enyaq gets two different powertrain layouts. The first rear-mounted motor can produce 179hp or 204 hp. The superior multi-axle dual-motor layout generates a combined output of 266hp.
Skoda has planned the launch of the new Kodiaq on January 10th. We expect the Enyaq EV to make its way to India by the year 2023. Skoda hasn’t revealed any updates about the pricing of the E.V We are expecting it to be on the expensive side since it is a CBU model.
