Over two months after the Enyaq iV concept was teased by Skoda Auto, the carmaker has announced that the all-electric crossover will make its world debut at Prague on September 1, 2020. Skoda’s first EV, the Enyaq iV is based on the MEB architecture of the Volkswagen Group. So, you might say it’s the sibling of the upcoming Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV.
In 2018, the Fabia Combi Scoutline received a facelift to coincide with the wagon’s mid-cycle update, and now Skoda is slapping on the Scoutline badge on a crossover for the first time. The split headlight setup is a typical Skoda crossover trait, while the taillights bear a striking resemblance to those of the Scala hatchback or Kamiq. Inside, the tablet-like infotainment system.
Highlighted Specifications of Skoda Enyaq iV
Skoda has just introduced the Kushaq, a new compact crossover that is quite similar in size to the Kamiq. The Kushaq also fits well in terms of design between the already known crossovers and SUVs from Skoda. However, there is one but.
Skoda Crossover 2018
- It’ll be available in five variants: 50, 60, 80, 80X, and vRS.
- Every version will have different configurations regarding power, range, battery capacity, and drivetrain.
- It will have a 13-inch touchscreen, head-up monitor, and a boot room of 585 liters.
- Its appearance in teased concept photos is more akin to a crossover than an SUV.
- This will be in competition with the new Volkswagen ID.4 hybrid SUV.
The Enyaq iV will be delivered in five variants: 50, 60, 80, 80X, and a performance-oriented vRS. Each model features various powertrain configurations with different tuning states, battery capacity, and drivetrain. Here’s a closer look at them:
Range (WLTP claimed)
At a 0-100kmph sprint time of 6.2 seconds and a max speed of 180kmph, the range-topping vRS is of course the fastest. But this value comes at the expense of capacity since, at 500 km, the 80 version provides 40 km more range in one single charge.
The Enyaq’s battery pack also supports fast-charging up to 125kW, juicing up the crossover in just 40 minutes from 0-80 percent. Both models have an electric motor at the rear axle with all-wheel-drive versions that benefit from another front-axle electric motor.
Although the teased prototype is shod in heavy camouflage we may tell that the overall profile of the Enyag iV looks more like a crossover than an SUV. This also features some typical Skoda parts such as butterfly grille, sleek headlamps and tail lamps in C-shaped form.

Prepare until the end of this year for the Skoda Enyaq iV to come to the international market. There’s no word on whether the electric crossover will make it to Indian shores, but in the near future, it is likely to happen.
This will mark the entrance of Skoda into the all-electric market
Skoda Crossover 2018
Skoda’s first-ever EV built from the ground up, the Enyaq iV, is scheduled to make its global debut on September 1. The Czech carmaker has already unveiled the exterior of the SUV, although of a pre-production version wearing Skoda ‘s green camouflage. Now, it’s published the first drawing of the interior of the electric crossover, giving us a glimpse of the dashboard configuration of the Enyaq iV.
- Gains a 13-inch infotainment screen and a double-speed steering wheel.
- It has a flat floor and a wide boot of 585 liters.
- Should make their world debut on September 1.
The interior of the Skoda Enyaq iV seems to have been influenced by the fourth-gen Octavia’s. The sketch reveals a 13-inch infotainment system that provides access to nearly all the controls mounted on top of the dash. Skoda notes that the midsection of the multilayer dashboard is inspired by the butterfly grille of the Czech brand. We do like the special two-speed steering wheel and toggle switches under the AC vents from Skoda.
Thanks to the streamlined drive selector the lower central console is functional, freeing up plenty of room. The middle passenger will also rejoice in the rear seat, as the Enyaq should have a flat floor. This also boasts a large boot of 585 liters.
Skoda used natural and recycled fabrics inside the Enyaq iV. Seat upholstery on selected models is made from 40 percent wool while the rest is a polyester mix from recycled PET bottles. For through predefined bundles featuring different themes and features there will be plenty of customization choices on offer. Many of the features listed in the Enyaq iV include a head-up display with virtual reality, connected car technology, and cruise control.
Skoda Enyaq iV Powertrain
The Skoda Enyaq iV specifications and powertrain options have already been announced. Electric crossover with both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drivetrains will be offered. Enthusiasts should also rejoice as a souped-up vRS version will be on sale.

Skoda’s first electric vehicle will debut on September 1 and will lock horns with the Volkswagen ID.4 when it is launched. However, the Enyaq iV is highly unlikely to make its way to India. Yet a few of those models of the vRS could satisfy us and Skoda enthusiasts. How does it mean, Skoda?
As part of a special event in China, the official presentation of the new compact crossover Skoda Kamiq was held. The world premiere of the car, first intended for the market in China, will take place at the Beijing show this week.
Compact Skoda Kamiq is defined as a “popular” model, as it will be the most affordable SUV of the Czech manufacturer. In China, the crossover will only be available with one power unit but two gearboxes. A four-wheel drive system is not foreseen.
Model sales start in the summer. At the core of the crossover is the Volkswagen – MQB platform with a semi-independent rear suspension. The length of the Kamiq is 4390 mm, the width is 1781 mm and the height is 1593 mm. The distance between the two axles is 2610 mm.
In this way, Skoda Kamiq is less than the Chinese modification of Skoda Karoq, which is 4432 mm long, 1481 mm wide, 1614 mm high and 2688 mm wide. For the new SUV, only a 1.5 MPI petrol engine from the new EA211 Evo family will be available. Its power is 110 hp. and 150 Nm. The gearboxes are a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic.
The equipment is tailored to its price. Kamiq does not come with a digital instrument panel, LED headlamps and a Climatronic. Instead they offer halogen and custom air conditioner. There is, however, a multimedia touchscreen display system.

The production of the new SUV of the Czechs will take place in the joint venture of SAIC and Volkswagen in China. At a later stage, the SUV will also be sold in other countries, but in Europe it is unlikely to occur.
