According to the photos, the appearance of the new electric SUV will be similar to the appearance of the Vision iV concept. Besides, there are some features of the Karoq and Kodiaq in the exterior of the new model.

The car name Enyaq is derived from the Irish female name Enya, which means «source of life». According to Skoda, the letter E in the name indicates that the car belongs to the EV line, and Q – to SUVs.

The Skoda Enyaq is based on Volkswagen's MEB platform, developed for new-generation electric cars. The Czech SUV will share the main components and units with the future Volkswagen ID.4 series. It is known that the Enyaq will be rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

It is expected that the Czech electric SUV will be available in 2021. The company plans to launch about ten EVs and hybrids by 2025. It is projected that electrified and electric models will account for 25% of all manufacturer sales in 5 years.
