Skoda’s long-awaited Enyaq Coupé electric SUV arrives in style 12 months after its due date
Better late than never, as the saying goes. This is also the case with the new Enyaq Coupé from Skoda.
Twelve months after its due date, the new electric crossover model – Skoda’s first – has finally hit the market after the company said it was experiencing “unpredictable” delays due to “excessive global demand”.
That just goes to show how markets have been affected by extensive production delays.
Anyway, the car (pictured below) has just gone on sale and prices start at €56,710. The coupe will add something more to the current Enyaq model, for which demand often exceeds supply. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been on the market for three years.
Despite the sloping shape of the newcomer (from the center pillar to the back), there is a good amount of space and a trunk volume of 570 liters. The latter is only 15 liters less than the current Enyaq displacement.
The cabin uses many natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials.
Outside there are side skirts, while alloy wheels range in size from 19 inches to 21 inches.
Depending on the specification and model, the range between charges is up to 545 km. Realistically, that’s probably less than 500km, but it’s still an encouraging number.
There are two battery options, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, while power ranges from 132kW to 195kW.
Power starts at 132 kW for the rear-wheel drive Model 60 with a 62 kWh battery.
The 80 model, also with rear-wheel drive, draws 150 kW from its 82 kWh battery.
And the Enyaq Coupé 80x model is all-wheel drive, as a second motor drives the front axle. This powerhouse has a system output of 195kW.
