Skoda unveils the Enyaq Coupe iV, More stylish, sportier
Skoda is finally unveiling the Enyaq Coupe iV which is a sportier version of its all-electric SUV. The second model based on the MEB architecture of the VW Group and if all this was not interesting enough, its first purely electric model that is also available in a “hot” RS version!
The Enyaq Coupe iV is based on the Enyaq iV and therefore shares with it many common elements and has roughly the same dimensions. The strongly inclined roof gives points not only in terms of the elegance of the design but also in the aerodynamics since the drag coefficient is now formed at 0.234.
The Enyaq Coupe iV offers a slightly smaller luggage compartment (570 litres versus the 585 in the SUV version) – a retreat that doesn’t look so important when you consider that in addition to the look, with the Enyaq Coupe iV you also gain the standard panoramic sunroof.
While the coupe version also shares the same cabin as the Enyaq iV, with the same design and the same 5.3-inch screens for the digital instrument cluster and 13.0-inch for the infotainment system, Skoda has added a few special touches as well as two optional “Design Selections” in two exclusively for the Enyaq Coupe iV color: Phoenix Orange and Graphite Grey.
Skoda says its new electric model will be available in three different versions: the “60” with the 62 kWh battery powered thanks to a 179-horsepower electric motor and 310 Nm of torque on the rear axle, which accelerates the car to 100 km/h from a standstill in 8.8 seconds.
The “80” has the largest battery of 82 kWh and a slightly more powerful 204-horsepower electric motor with 310 Nm of torque thanks to which 0-100 km/h is completed in 8.7 seconds while anyone who wants something more, there is also the “80x” with the same battery but two electric motors, one on the front axle and one on the rear, combined output of 265 horsepower and 425 Nm of torque.

In this case, the sprint at 100 km/h is completed in 7.0 seconds while all these versions share the same top speed of 160 km/h. In terms of range, the improved aerodynamics also benefit this area, so the Enyaq Coupe iV 80 can travel up to 545 kilometers on each charge. When the battery charge runs out, replenishment from 10% to 80% of maximum capacity takes just 29 minutes.
The Enyaq Coupe RS iV features 20-inch wheels (optionally available 21-inch) while the suspension has sportier settings and reduces ground clearance by 15 millimeters at the front and 10mm rear.
It has two electric motors, one on the front axle and one on the rear, with a combined output of 299 horsepower and 460 Nm of torque. Thus, the first electric RS accelerates to 100 km/h from a standstill in 6.5 seconds while the top speed reaches 180 km/h.
