Skoda has added a new version of the Enyaq to its modern lineup of all-electric offerings, the Enyaq Coupe iV. Based on the standard Enyaq, the new Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV gets a heightened stance, a coupe-like sloping roofline and a cleaner design for the boot lid.
The new Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV will be available in four different variants – 60, 80, 80x and RS. The top-of-the-line RS variant is based on the 80x and is a full-blown performance version of the vehicle. All the variants differ based on features and powertrain.
The overall design of the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV remains close to the standard Enyaq till the B-pillar, post which it starts getting its own identity with a sloping down roofline and a rather simple design for the boot lid. It retains the edgy-looking all-LED headlamps and closed grille from the standard Enyaq. One can opt for alloy wheels ranging in between 19-inches to 21-inches in size. The RS variant sits a bit lower than other variants, with the front end lowered by 15mm and the rear end lowered by 10mm.
The overall cabin layout of the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV is similar to that of the standard Enyaq. However, the coupe version gets a more conventional three-spoke steering wheel, which looks different from the two-spoke unit found in modern Skoda offerings. The cabin has a textured layout for the dashboard with multiple layers, with the car getting a 5.3-inch full-TFT instrument console and a 13-inch touchscreen infotainment system
Following the new trend, Skoda has ditched traditional leather upholstery for the new-age upholstery made of ‘sustainable materials. Compared to the standard variants, the RS version gets a sportier-looking dark finish for the dashboard elements and carbon-fibre like textures at some places. Even with a sloping roofline, the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV gets a boot capacity of 570 litres.
Let’s start with the base 60 version, which gets a 62 kWh battery pack and a rear-wheel-drive system. The rear wheel-mounted electric motor here produces a maximum power output of 177 bhp and maximum torque output of 310 Nm.
The mid-spec 80 variant gets a bigger battery pack and a more powerful motor. It has an 82 kWh battery pack on its rear axle, giving it a rear-wheel-drive configuration. It also gets a more powerful motor, which churns out 201 bhp of maximum power and 310 Nm of maximum torque.
The higher 80x variant is based on the 80 variant but gets an all-wheel-drive with one motor each on both front and rear axles. While it shares its 82 kWh battery pack with the 80 variant, it claims higher power and torque outputs of 261 bhp and 425 Nm respectively.
The top-spec RS variant also gets the same 82 kWh battery pack, but the dual-motor setup here is tuned to offer higher performance numbers – 295 bhp of maximum power and 460 Nm of maximum torque.
The battery pack options of the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV can be charged from 10-80 per cent in just 29 minutes using the fast charging option.
Will it come to India?
While the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV’s arrival in India is an unpredictable expectation to make for the near future, Skoda is mulling to bring the standard Enyaq iV to India as a niche and halo offering from Skoda in India.
