Skoda working on Enyaq iV coupe and new electric hatchback

After Enyaq iV electric SUV, Skoda is reportedly working on Enyaq iV coupe variant that could be revealed later this year. The Czech brand is also planning to add an electric crossover hatchback to its lineup.

Skoda, just like most other companies in the world, is actively embracing electric mobility. The Czech brand’s existing EV lineup currently consists of only one vehicle — Enyaq iV — that was revealed in September last year. In comparison to this, Volkswagen has several cars in its ID range of all-electric cars. However, Skoda is keen on expanding its EV range with some new models. According to reports, the company will launch Enyaq iV’s coupe version later this year. Skoda Enyaq iV coupe has already been spotted testing in Europe and its spy shots have surfaced on the interweb. The Enyaq iV is based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform that also underpins VW ID.4. As a matter of fact, Enyaq iV and ID.4 have similar dimensions except for slightly more cabin space and a bigger boot on the Skoda electric car.

Unlike the Volkswagen ID range, which employs a very distinct and futuristic design language, the Skoda Enyaq iV looks like a conventional SUV. But this is probably because Enyaq is currently the only all-electric car in the Czech carmaker’s lineup. But with more EV additions, we can expect Skoda to come up with a distinct design tenet for its electric cars. On that note, let’s talk about Skoda’s third electric car; according to reports, Skoda Enyaq iV coupe and Enyaq iV SUV will be joined by car based on Volkswagen ID.3. And while ID.3 is a hatchback, its Skoda cousin is expected to be a crossover with some rugged design elements.

And while the all-electric Skoda crossover is not expected to make an appearance before 2022, the Enyaq iV coupe version could be revealed by the end of this year. It is likely to be powered by Enyaq iV SUV’s electric powertrain, probably in the same state of tune. This means that the electric coupe could offer a range between 340 km/charge and 500 km/charge along with maximum power of 302 bhp.
