The stable, safe and silent driving of the Skoda Enyaq iV, in its 80 version, positions it as one of the best electric SUVs on the market. To which must be added a premium finish, a spacious trunk and more than 400 km of autonomy.

Exceptional width

It is in theory a technical twin of the Volkswagen ID.3 and ID.4, achieving a size very close to the largest in the range that is the Skoda Kodiaq, with 5 cm less in length (4.65 m) and 7 in height. (1.62 m) and with a much more aerodynamic profile.

Its habitability is very similar to that of the 5-seater Kodiaq , with a little less width in the rear area as the only detail.

It has a generous trunk very close to 600 liters that also has a space under the floor for recharging cables that is around 50 liters (official figure: 585 liters).

The floor of the Enyaq iV is completely flat throughout the passenger compartment and it is very easy to move between the rear seats, also having innumerable practical resources designed to make life more comfortable , such as umbrellas and large bags located in the doors, elements of cargo containment in the trunk, a very large hole under the elbow of the front armrest or even the tow hook (foldable and capable of pulling up to 1,200 kilos).

Environment with “premium” finish

As soon as you open the door of the Skoda Enyaq iV 80, you can breathe an authentically “premium” atmosphere, in any of its finishes, from the ” Loft ” access to the ” Suite” which is more patent and is completed in the ” Lodge ”, already with seats in leather.

The dashboard , very similar to that of its Volkswagen cousins, has a 5.3″ instrumentation screen with a lot of control information and another, standard, 13″ central screen that incorporates comfort elements, driving assistants, lighting, etc., with practically all the controls of the car incorporated in it.

The optional head-up Display projects the data in front of the driver’s eyes, showing the speed, reading of signals, the operation of the driving aids, the distance to other vehicles, etc., as well as all the navigation indications of very expressive way.

Its direction is really sensitive and also the steering wheel has a system that detects whether attention is maintained or not , by automatically assessing the driver’s hands with force on the steering wheel, even braking if it detects distractions.

Also surprising in its driving is the correct operation of regenerative braking, as well as a perfect fit in each and every one of the electronic driving aids.

It is possible to choose between 3 different retention levels using the paddles on the steering wheel, even reaching the highest retention level to replace the brake pedal when you lift your foot off the accelerator.

The more powerful 204 and 65 hp engines use a 77 kW/h net (82 gross) battery and achieve ranges of 425 km on a single full charge.

The average consumption calculated in the test carried out by Motor Mundial represents an average cost of about €5.64/100 km , which represents a more than acceptable level.

Its battery can be charged quickly with direct current and powers up to 125 kW and allow the charging power to always be maintained above 50%.
