New Skoda Enyaq iV Coupe: Here’s Our Best Look Yet At The Electric Crossover


It’s only been a couple of months since our first sighting of Skoda’s sportier-looking “coupe” iteration of the new Enyaq iV electric crossover, itself introduced earlier this fall, but the Czech company has already started yanking the camo off its prototypes. 

The Kodiaq-sized electric model which may or may not adopt the “Coupe” moniker follows in the footsteps of the standard Enyaq but adopt a sportier design with a sloping roof which is more in keeping with last year’s Vision iV concept. [Updated 12/20/2020]

The front end of the Enyaq iV Coupe carries over from the standard model, but along with the more rakish roofline, the rear is also completely new. Details are hard to make out on the covered parts, but we can see a sportier greenhouse and an upward sweeping beltline.

The model also has an angular rear window and an upright tailgate with an integrated spoiler. We can also see a new rear bumper which houses a recessed license plate area.

Spy photographers didn’t get a glimpse inside, but the cabin will likely echo the standard Enyaq. This means we can expect a minimalist interior with a digital instrument cluster, a ‘floating’ center console and a 10- or 13-inch infotainment system. There should also be eco-friendly upholstery and an assortment of familiar driver assistance systems.

Powertrain options should carryover, so we can expect an entry-level variant with a 55 kWh lithium-ion battery that powers a rear-mounted electric motor with 146 hp (109 kW / 148 PS) and 162 lb-ft (220 Nm) of torque. We can also expect a more powerful variant with a 62 kWh battery and an electric motor that produces 177 hp (132 kW / 179 PS) and 229 lb-ft (310 Nm) of torque.

Last year’s Skoda Vision IV EV Concept foreshadowed the production model spied here, albeit with a way more dramatic design language that has been softened down

There should also be three variants with an 82 kWh battery pack. One should have rear-wheel drive and an output of 201 hp (150 kW / 204 PS) and 229 lb-ft (310 Nm) of torque. The other two would be all-wheel drive and feature two electric motors with combined outputs of 261 hp (195 kW / 265 PS) and 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS).

Range would vary but model, but the standard Enyaq can travel between 211 – 317 miles (340 – 510 km) in the WLTP cycle.
