After several delays, Skoda has finally confirmed the launch date of the Enyaq Coupe iV: next January 31, 2022. This model, whose arrival at dealerships is scheduled for the middle of next year, will be the brother of the Audi Q4 Sportback e-Tron and Volkswagen ID.5, which are in turn the “coupe” versions of the Audi Q4 e-Tron and Volkswagen ID.4.
The Enyaq Coupe iV will have a sportier aesthetic than the original model, from which it will be distinguished by a roofline that “slopes gently towards the rear, merging with the tailgate and culminating in a sharp edge”, giving it a more dynamic look. However, both models will be identical from the B-pillar forward.
Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV Dimensions
The dimensions will not vary too much from one to another, as the Enyaq Coupe iV will measure 4,653 mm long, 1,879 mm wide, 1,617 mm high, and will have a 2,765 mm wheelbase, keeping the width and wheelbase of the Enyaq iV unchanged. original, which measures 4,649 mm long and 1,616 mm high. The boot for its part will lose some capacity (570 liters instead of 585).
Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV Engine
Initially, the Enyaq Coupe iV will be available with two battery packs, one of 58 kWh and the other of 77 kWh. The first will be associated with a 180 hp (132 kW) and 310 Nm engine, thanks to which it will be able to complete 0 to 100 km / h in 8.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 160 km / h. The second will have two mechanical options: a rear-wheel-drive variant with 204 hp and 310 Nm, and another with 265 hp (195 kW) and 425 Nm all-wheel drive. The first will do the 0 to 100 km / h in 8.7 seconds, while the second will lower the time to 7 seconds. Top speed will remain limited to 160 km / h.
These models (Coupé iV 60, Coupe iV 80 and Coupé iV 80X) will later be joined by a fourth version called Coupé iV RS . This variant will be similar to the Coupé iV 80X (it will use a powertrain consisting of two engines, it will have an all-wheel drive, and will make use of 77 kWh capacity batteries), although its power will rise to 299 hp.
The coefficient of aerodynamic resistance of the Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV will be the best in its category (0.234), which will have a positive effect on its efficiency. The iV 80 Coupé, the longest-range version in the range, is expected to homologate about 535 km WLTP. At the moment it is not clear if it will have the 125 kW charging system of the standard Enyaq iV or if instead, it will add the 135 kW recently released by the Volkswagen ID.5.
