Everyone thought that the new Skoda Enyaq would be just an electric SUV for families. But Skoda wants Enyaq to be more than that. It wants to be sporty.
Skoda has confirmed pricing and opened order books for the new Enyaq iV SportLine – a sporty addition to the Enyaq iV range. The SportLine joins the 60 Nav and 80 models in the brand’s launch line-up and gives customers one of the broadest ranges in the electric vehicle sector.
Priced from £39,900, the SportLine model combines the dynamic look of a ŠKODA performance model with the added practicality of a full-size SUV. It comes with a 82-kWh battery (77 kWh net) and can cover up to 327 miles on the WLTP combined cycle. In terms of layout, the Enyaq iV features a rear motor and rear wheel drive with the drive unit combining motor, control electronics and a single-speed gearbox.
The motor generates 204PS and 310Nm of torque and can propel the Enyaq iV SportLine from 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 99mph. To meet the demands of keen drivers, the SportLine model is equipped with a sports chassis set up as standard. This features a lower ride height (15mm lower and the front, 10mm at the rear) and reduces the centre of gravity for even more agile handling. Drive Mode Select and progressive steering are also standard while Dynamic Chassis Control is available as an option.
The SportLine iV’s grille, window frames, roof rails and rear bumper diffuser are finished in black, as is ŠKODA block lettering and tailgate badges. The striking side skirts are body-coloured and the SportLine iV comes with a unique front apron and badges on the front wings. 20-inch Vega Anthracite alloy wheels complete the look.
The Enyaq SportLine iV comes with full LED Matrix headlights as standard. Each Matrix high beam module features 24 LEDs, which can be controlled individually and enable the driver to have the high beam on at all times without dazzling other road users. This intelligent technology automatically turns off individual segments of the light beam when the camera on the windscreen detects vehicles, as well as people and objects, reflecting the light.
