2020 Skoda Eniaq iV, Skoda’s Electric SUV will aAive in a Year
Based on the same VW ID.3 platform, Skoda will launch a 100% electric SUV in 2020. In Germany, they anticipate it could be called Eniaq (or Enyaq). We give you all the details.
It may be curious, but our German Auto Motor und Sports colleagues have already hunted Skoda tuning their new electric SUV in Nürburgring, as you can see if you click on this link. The most surprising thing, however, is that they have used a modified VW Tiguan’s body for development to hide it, but below is the new Skoda model.
Anticipated so far through the Vision iV concept that we could see in the last Geneva Motor Show, the new Skoda electric SUV will now go into production in 2020 to launch, surely, already during the second half of the year. Although the brand has not yet confirmed what its name will be, from Germany they claim that Skoda has just registered two names: Eniaq or Enya.
SKODA ELECTRIC SUV: WITH THE BASE OF THE VW ID.3
Estas dos denominaciones cuadran, sin duda, con las actuales de sus SUV. Recuerda: Kamiq, Karoq y Kodiaq… aunque no contar con la “K” inicial pueda plantearnos dudas. También es probable que adopte el apelativo iV, que la marca ya ha anunciado que identificará a todos sus modelos electrificados, como ya podemos ver en el Citigo o en el Superb.
Desarrollado a partir de la misma base del nuevo compacto VW ID.3, este SUV de Skoda se convertirá en el primer modelo de la compañía que empleará la nueva plataforma MEB, el kit de construcción eléctrica modular del Grupo Volkswagen. Al mismo tiempo, es seguro también que este Eniaq (si es que se llama así finalmente) compartirá muchos componentes con el recientemente publicado ID.4, un SUV eléctrico que lanzará Volkswagen.
SKODA ENIAQ: BETWEEN KAROQ AND KODIAQ
With approximately 4.60 meters in length, the first Skoda electric SUV will have a very sporty silhouette and with a coupé appearance, and should be located in the Czech range between the current Skoda Karoq and Kodiaq. If we take the Vision iV concept as a reference, this SUV could have an electric motor on the front axle and another on the rear, yielding up to 306 hp in total.
This prototype also had lithium-ion batteries of 83 kWh, capable of ensuring a range of up to 500 kilometers, according to the WLTP cycle. And I would, of course, have an all-wheel drive. As reported from Germany, if you take the scheme of the new ID.3, this SUV could also be available with three different battery sizes: 45, 58 or 77 kWh capacity.
Produced this new electric SUV at the Mlada Boleslav plant in the Czech Republic, the Vision iV prototype also announced an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.9 seconds. Your battery recharge could reach 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
