Skoda introduces new Enyaq Coupe iV with up to 545 km of range
MladĂˇ Boleslav, Czech Republic-headquartered automobile manufacturer Skoda has unveiled a new Enyaq CoupĂ© iV for Europe that will come in two different battery sizes as well as two different drivetrains.
The Enyaq CoupĂ© iV for Europe has been introduced after the great success of Enyaq iV, a pure electric crossover SUV built upon VW Groupâ€™s proprietary MEB platform that has specifically been developed for EVs. The Enyaq iV was introduced in 2000, and it has since been joined by its Superb and Octavia modelsâ€™ two PHEV versions. The quick success of the Enyaq iV allowed the brand to report better-than-expected sales numbers. Over the last couple of years, the automobile manufacturer has shifted its focus from internal combustion engines to all-electric vehicles, rather than introducing just PHEV versions of its other vehicles. The new all-electric The Enyaq CoupĂ© iV will arrive in European markets in two separate trims.
Compared to its Enyaq predecessor, the new CoupĂ© iV version has a lower drag coefficient (.234 Cd). According to the companyâ€™s claims, it has the ability to deliver a range of up to 545 km on a single charge; of course, it depends on which version you choose. There are four performance levels to choose from: the Enyaq CoupĂ© iV 60, Enyaq CoupĂ© iV 80, Enyaq CoupĂ© iV 80x, and Enyaq CoupĂ© RS iV.
The Enyaq CoupĂ© iV 60 sports Single RWD with battery capacity of 62 kWh (net 58 kWh) and peak power output of 132 kW. The Enyaq CoupĂ© iV 80 features Single RWD with 82 kWh (net 77 kWh) and peak output of 150 kW.
