New all-electric ŠKODA Enyaq iV opens for orders

ŠKODA will open orders on 10th March for the new Enyaq iV, the company's first purpose-built battery electric car. The all-electric SUV, based on the Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification toolkit, is being offered with a new range structure, two battery size options and a new finance offering: Lease&Care.

The Enyaq iV also introduces a new way for customers to tailor the car to their tastes and requirements. Rather than selecting from traditional trim levels, customers will be able to choose the battery size they need, select an interior design and personalise the car from a range of equipment packs and options.

The range consists of two variants: the Enyaq iV 60 Nav and the Enyaq iV 80 – with 62kWh and 82kWh battery packs respectively. All Enyaq iV models have a minimum DC rapid charging capability of 50kW as standard. Customers can specify higher 100kW (for 62kWh battery) and 125kW (for 82kWh battery only) DC charge rates as options.

The Enyaq iV offers customers three charging options. In addition to using a standard household 230V socket with 2.3 kW alternating current (AC), it can be charged at home overnight using a wallbox of up to 7.2kW. Depending on the battery size, the charging process with a 7.2kW wallbox takes approximately 9 hours 30 minutes for the 62 kWh and approximately 13 hours for the 82 kWh battery (both to 100% charge). As a third charging option, the vehicle can be connected to rapid DC charging points with a charging capacity of up to 125 kW. This allows the Enyaq iV 80 to be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in as little as 38 minutes and 35 minutes for the Enyaq iV 60 Nav.

Customers choosing the 82kWh battery pack, with the Enyaq iV 80, will benefit from an increased standard specification that includes chrome detailing, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera. 80 models also come with a heated two-spoke leather steering wheel that features paddles for setting the levels of regenerative braking, Drive Mode Select and infotainment system with navigation.

A new way to pay

The Enyaq iV also comes with a new finance option. Lease&Care has been developed by Volkswagen Financial Services specifically for buyers of electric vehicles and is a personal lease that includes built-in aftersales packages in one monthly payment. Enyaq iV customers select their ideal Enyaq iV, choose an initial deposit which can be as little as one monthly payment, choose their annual mileage and select their term of either 24, 36 or 48 months. Customers can then tailor their package by choosing one of three aftersales ‘care’ packages.
