We test drive the £42k flagship EV that taxi drivers love

NEXT as you pass by a minicab leaderboard, watch for cars waiting to fare – a good part of them I guarantee will be Skodas.

Of all the millions Skoda spends on flashy marketing campaigns, the biggest endorsement of their cars is the fact taxi drivers love them.

The biggest endorsement for Skoda cars is the fact that taxi drivers love them

For most of us, 90% of our car’s life will be sitting still and cold.

But for taxi drivers, 90% of their car’s life is spent on the road. They choose their wheels carefully.

That’s why the next time you’re in a cab after some sweet cherries in town with friends, you’ll likely be driving home in this car – the Skoda Enyaq Coupe.

In a word, it’s a coupe version of the regular Enyaq, one of the most affordable EV options on sale.

Many coupe SUVs, like the Porsche Cayenne Coupe, lose seats in the back and reduce headroom and trunk space.

But this is Skoda.

Although it looks a lot nicer than its boxy cousin, it still has a huge 570-liter trunk for old ladies to shop on the bingo ride home, and it hasn’t dropped a millimeter. which space.

To solve this problem, Skoda fitted a glass roof as standard and removed the traditional sunshade, instead treating the glass to block out the harsh sunlight and prevent it from turning the car into a greenhouse.

The first model sold in the UK was actually a hotter vRS version, the first electric Skoda with the lettering.

It’s essentially a VW ID.4 GTX in a different skin, which means it’ll run 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds via four-wheel drive.

Personally, I will wait for the standard version 80 to come out later this year.

It still looks good, but covers up to 339 miles compared to vRS’ 309 miles.

It will also cost around $10k less than vRS’ £51,885 price tag.

The interior is tightly coupled – it’s a Skoda, of course – and on the road it feels refined for the most part.

Main Event: Skoda Enyaq Coupe

Price: £42,000

The battery: 82kWh

Power: 204hp, 310Nm

0-62mph: 8.8 seconds

Max speed: 99mph

It’s only on bumpy roads at high speeds that it floats a bit – you feel the weight of the 82kWh battery in the car’s belly as you hit the ground with a slam dunk.

Overall, Skoda has made its flagship EV a lot nicer without sacrificing what makes it one of the most practical electric cars on the market.

And I think the cabbage people would agree.
