Skoda, like all car manufacturers, has become very interested in electric vehicles. The first such model was so successful that the company does not even know what to do with it. Now it's the turn for the Skoda Enyaq iV. Does anyone doubt its prospects?

Despite the fact that the new Skoda SUV has not yet been officially presented, we already know a lot about it. The first thing is its design, which the manufacturer unveiled with detailed images. The prototype of stylistic solutions is the 2019 Skoda Vision iV Concept. What has changed during the year on the way to the production model? Take a closer look.

Let's start with the fact that we have to say goodbye to the side part made in the style of a coupe SUV. Perhaps not for long, because no one will forbid the Czech company to offer a more stylish modification of the Enyaq iV over time. At first, we will get a more practical electric SUV with a classic silhouette, a functional interior and a roomy trunk.

In the front, the new Skoda inherits all design solutions of last year's prototype. The designers apply all the elements that we had time to get used to: redesigned headlights, a decorative plug in place of a fake radiator grille, and air intakes on the bumper. Thanks to this design, the car will be very recognizable. And still there is a horizontal LED strip crossing the «muzzle».

The rear end of the new Skoda SUV is generally inherited from the concept (if you do not take into account the vertical tilt of the rear window). The claw-like taillights pattern is still here, although the lighting technology is now designed in more familiar blocks. The rear bumper has not changed much.

The interior of the 2021 Skoda Enyaq iV is also shown only in sketches. In this case, it looks no less futuristic than in the Vision iV Concept. On the other hand, the steering wheel of the Skoda Octavia A8 and the rather traditional design of the climate system deflectors visually make the fascia more conventional.

The new car will suit all customers’ taste, because there will be released a huge number of various modifications and powertrain configurations. RWD models will be available with 148 hp (a 55-kWh battery and a 340-km range), 180 hp (a 62-kWh battery and a 390-km range) and 204 hp (an 82-kWh battery and a 500-km range).

A FWD variant will be equipped with an electric motor installed on the front axle in addition to a rear one. Its total output will be increased to 265 hp (an 82-kWh battery and a 460-km range) or 306 hp (an 82-kWh battery and a 460-km range). The official premiere of the Enyaq iV will take place on September 1st.
