The Czech automaker has started production of its first all-electric SUV, the Enyaq iV.
Škoda aims to make around 350 units per day at the brand’s headquarters in Mladá Boleslav. It is also the first Škoda vehicle built on VW Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB) platform, the same platform used by VW for the ID.3 and ID.4 EVs.
In order to produce the Enyaq, the Czech manufacturer invested 32 million € in upgrading its facilities in Mladá Boleslav. Once completed, Škoda will also be able to manufacture vehicles based on the MQB platform under the same roof.
It will be offered with three battery options, with the biggest one good for up to 316 miles on a single charge. There will also be a range-topping RS variant with slightly more than 300 horsepower and another motor on the front axle. Specific lower variants can also be equipped with an AWD drivetrain.
The Enyaq comes with something Škoda calls “Crystal Face,” an optional extra that includes LED lights on the front grille giving the SUV a premium look. Worth mentioning, the Enyaq is also Škoda’s first vehicle to feature a head-up display with augmented reality.
Detailed specs and pricing are still yet to come. We’ll keep you posted!
