Skoda Enyaq iV design
Skoda‘s brand reputation is growing by leaps and bounds each year, and the announcement of the Enyaq iV has continued this trend. Just like the current range of new Skoda models that it joins, the Enyaq iV shares the typical design DNA of being well-built, easy-on-the-eye and practical.
A set of striking Matrix LED headlights on the front and standard LED tail lights adds to the dynamic looks of the Enyaq iV. If that wasn’t enough, the car’s muscular body has more in common with one of BMW‘s sporty ‘X’ series SUVs, than an environmentally-friendly family motor.
For an added bit of premium zing, all models get chrome framing around the grille and hints of crystalline.
Stylish 19in ‘Propheus’ alloy wheels are the icing on the cake. They’re not quite capable of dramatic metamorphosis like the sea god they’re named after. However, they do have a pleasant five-spoke, modern design that rotates elegantly on the move.
Skoda Enyaq iV interior
Skoda has always been commended for its approach to designing spacious, well-built interiors. In recent years, its new productions have demonstrated an ability to borrow an element of tech-savviness from its Volkswagen owners too.
So, how does the brand’s first bespoke EV fit into this category?
For starters, you get whole raft of high-end materials greeting you when you step inside the Enyaq iV. Aluminium brushed decorative inserts; fabric/artificial leather upholstery; and a two-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel make the car feel robust and reliable.
Throw in LED ambient lighting and dual-zone climate control, and you’ve got yourself an ideal recipe for a comfortable five-seater family car.
Want a bit more luxury? Opt for the higher-spec Lounge trim and it comes with Alcantara/leather seats. Range-topping Nav Suite and Eco Nav Suite versions get full leather seats.
For those sitting in the back, if there’s only two people then the Enyaq iV can really offer room to stretch out. This is helped by the fact that the back rest of the middle seat can be folded down to form an armrest for passengers either side.
Overall, the Enyaq iV’s experience (whether you’re behind the wheel or not) is made even more peaceful by heat-insulating glass on the windscreen and windows.
The centrepiece bringing everything together in the car is a 13in infotainment touchscreen on the centre of the dash.
Everything from smartphone mirroring and climate control, to the car’s charging status can be controlled through the display.
Want to reduce the AC charge current to ensure your Enyaq iV is never overcharged? Using the car’s settings in the infotainment system you can do this at the flick of a button.
Exclusive ‘Founders Edition’ models go one step further and add in a head-up display with augmented reality for a seriously ultra-modern driving experience.
Skoda Enyaq iV batteries and electric motors
See below a comparison of the Skoda Enyaq iV’s available battery and electric motor combination.
The cheaper, less powerful ’50’ version of the Enyaq iV, and the sportier ’80x’ and ‘RS’ specs, are set to be released later this year.

Skoda Enyaq iV driving and safety
Who said you couldn’t have fun driving an electric car? That’s a challenge Skoda was willing to accept when it created the Enyaq iV. With rear-wheel drive as standard, the car delivers torque (power) to the rear wheels for sportier, more engaging handling.
As you can see from the wide range of power outputs and battery capacities above, there’s an Enyaq iV for pretty much every driver. Even the smallest 55kWh 50 spec, which has a leisurely 0-62mph time of 11.4 seconds, is expected to feel gustier than these figures initially suggest.
Just like the range of cars it joins, Skoda’s first all-electric SUV is jam-packed with the most advanced safety assistance systems. These include:
- Lane assist
- Front assist with assisted automatic braking
- Cruise control with speed limiter
- Light and rain sensors
- Tyre pressure monitor system
- Rear parking sensors
- Front side airbags with curtain airbags and central interaction airbag
- Seatbelt pretensioner
Skoda Enyaq iV practicality
A 585-litre boot in the back of the Enyaq iV is very generous when you consider the car has a rear-wheel drive system and needs space for the battery packs. There’s even room for Skoda’s complimentary ice scraper in a handy slot on the tailgate.
In typical Skoda fashion, there are loads of little handy storage spaces dotted about the interior. Passengers in the back can make use of a smartphone pocket that’s integrated into the back of the front seats.
If you’re in the front, you’ll be able to wirelessly charge your device (if it’s compatible), along with the driver’s, by placing it in a cubby in front of the gearbox. Wireless MirrorLink connectivity also lets someone in the front sync their phone’s display to the interface.
Skoda Enyaq iV prices
Prices for the Skoda Enyaq iV vary depending on the variation you choose.
For the 60 model, which includes 132kW electric motor and 62kWh battery that’s good for 260 miles, you’re looking at a starting price of £32,785 new. However, at Moneyshake you can lease the same model (also new) for £311.55pcm.
More powerful, longer-distance 80 models come with a 150kW electric motor and a larger 82kWh battery that delivers 316 miles. The starting price for this spec is £33,900, or you can lease one from Moneyshake for £403.63pcm*
