This is the new Skoda Enyaq!
It’s fair to say that in 2021 electric SUVs are a bit like small, crossover SUVs have been for the past few years… They’re everywhere!! Almost every major manufacturer has an EV SUV available to buy, so does the Enyaq offer enough to stand out from the crowd?
Well when it comes to performance, there are two options to choose from - the entry level ’60’, or the ’80’. They both come with RWD, and the 60 provides 180hp from a single electric motor along with a claimed range of 256 miles from a 62kWh battery pack.
As for the 80, it’s also powered by a single electric motor, although this one offers 204hp, while the larger 82kWh battery pack will apparently provide you with 333 miles of range!
As for the interior, it’s certainly more than impressive, and your focus will be immediately drawn to the 13-inch infotainment screen which comes with all models. You'll also find smart digital driving display dials, and good quality materials throughout the majority of the cabin.
But is it enough? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    • Not electric thats for sure, pay way more get less. It creates more carbon to build that needs the ev to be driven for 40k+ to offset and as a low milage driver I doubt I would achieve that. I am still unconvinced this is a solution for me.

  • I wish Skoda had lost the clunky looking grille on this model and done something more interesting at the front end. Car design isn't like biological evolution. There's no need hang on to vestigial organs. Audis and BMWs are even worse in this regard. Some of their electric cars have massive but pointless pseudo-grilles. I like what Tesla has done with their cars in this regard. A grille free front end looks more futuristic.

The neighbours will point and sneer at you behind your back,, your children will be called names at school and your wife, not able to live with the shame of a "60" badge will run off with a rep driving an Audi.

  • “It doesn’t stand out in the same way as Volkswagen’s id4 does from the rest of its SUV range” This is a good thing IMO. I’m tired of the comical attempts by manufacturers for their electric models to look futuristic that. It’s so cheesy.

  • I always laugh at reviewers pointing out "why does an EV have a grille when it doesn't need one". Newsflash, a lot of ICE cars don't really use their top grille for air intake, but still have it. A lot of ICE cars don't have a the traditional "in-between-lights" grill either, even though by this logic they SHOULD have it (like my own 8G Civic - it does have a large bumper grille though). This is just design, so while it makes sense to ask why, it's also a bit pointless - a lot of EV manufacturers have some kind of a nod to the grille. Besides, Tesla 3 looks great without a grille (very reminiscent of Porsche cars, which of course are mostly ICE - so WHY don't they have a big grille between the lights?? :D). But Tesla S with its grille removed as part of a facelift looks hideous, because you can just tell there's something missing. So yeah, Skoda could have come up with some grille-less design. But then again, so what if they didn't?

  • Very symptomatic of the current battle between tech/software companies building simple electric cars with amazing software and traditional automakers building well thought out cars with mediocre software... I figure a bit more standardization of the 'hardware' (Chinese manufacturer like Foxconn are building up their capacities) will massively improve the quality of smaller tech company electric cars... can the established brands get their software in order in time before brand loyalty goes down the drain (similar to smartphones)?
