Skoda will expand its electric line-up within the next few years with a coupe version of the Enyaq iV SUV and a replacement smaller model that’s set to require the shape of a crossover.
Skoda Enyaq coupe
The Czech firm recently introduced the Enyaq abroad, as its first bespoke EV on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform.
While virtually identical in size and specification to the Volkswagen ID 4, the Enyaq features a stretched wheelbase and a boot 42 litres larger, at 585 litres. Skoda’s design chief Oliver Stefani said that specialise in luggage space reflects the recognition of the Octavia and Superb estates, adding that it’ll remain a design priority for the firm’s future electric cars.
Skoda is already performing on a coupe derivative of the Enyaq, which can share the mechanicals and lots of features, though feature a replacement design. The Enyaq coupe has also already been seen testing abroad, and it’s expected to hitch Skoda’s EV range sometime next year.
Skoda EV crossover
It’s expected that Skoda will follow the Enyaq coupe with a smaller MEB-based car which will be draw in dimensions to the Volkswagen ID 3.
As with that hatchback, the new Skoda will offer only rear-wheel drive but three battery pack capacities and two power outputs.
With Skoda that specialize in interior space, it’s expected that the car’s dimensions are going to be stretched, giving it more of a crossover form to maximise interior capacity without dramatically increasing the footprint.
Skoda India Plans
Skoda is unlikely to bring the Enyaq EV to India – thanks to the high cost which will accompany it with both the CBU and CKD routes. an equivalent would apply to the Coupe derivative. However, the carmaker is evaluating a mass-market EV for India.
