Skoda Enyaq iV
Skoda might have been slow to delve into the world of electrification, it’s quickly developing its range of alternatively-fuelled models. The industrial giants are under the spotlight with their new EV and is setting up their marks in the electrical platform. The Skoda Enyaq will be part of Volkswagen MEB platform and will come with a host of powertrain options as well.
The SportLine chassis has been lowered by 15mm at the front and 10mm at the rear to lower the Enyaq’s centre of gravity for slightly sharper handling. Being a new trim to its SUV range, 20-inch alloy wheels and plenty of black exterior detailing. The Skoda Enyaq’s arguably the most important car the Czech brand’s built in rather a long time.
Interior Design Of Skoda Enyaq iV
Whatever theme you go for, the Enyaq iV has a spacious interior, with plenty of high-quality materials on display. It also gets a widescreen infotainment display as standard, which takes care of almost every function, including the climate control. We receive a pair of bucket seats that offer more support, a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel and carbon fibre-effect trim inlays. Recycled plastic bottle fabric, sustainable woollen floor mats and responsibly sourced olive leaf-rubbed leather are other features added to further illuminate the interior of this zero-emission eco-conscious SUV. The cabin overall is very elegant, materials are generally very nice and it is remarkably spacious.
Exterior Design Of Skoda Enyaq iV
Details regarding the exterior design and features were well elaborated by Karl Neuhold, head of exterior design at Skoda. He said, “With the Enyaq iV, we are again building on the emotive Skoda design language that characterises the Scala, the Kamiq and the new, fourth-generation Octavia. The Enyaq iV also features sculptural lines, clear surfaces and crystalline elements that draw inspiration from Bohemian crystal art. Its proportions, however, differ from those of our previous SUV models: the Enyaq iV has a shorter front end and an elongated roofline. This creates a very dynamic look and transforms it into a proverbial ‘space shuttle.
The design of the Enyaq iV is progressive, balanced and confident. The new proportions give it a special dynamic and a spacious interior, as well. Its large wheels and ground clearance give it the powerful presence of an SUV. Definitely the front. We consciously emphasise the distinctive Skoda grille on our electric vehicles, as this is an instantly recognisable feature of the brand. On the Enyaq iV, it is set further forward and is more upright, which enhances the powerful look. The full-LED matrix headlights and daytime running lights are particularly eye-catching, too.”
