The Skoda Enyaq Sportline iV is the sportiest version yet of the new, all-electric SUV from Mladá Boleslav. Its look is characterised by a range of black design features and large wheels, while the lowered sports chassis makes for a particularly dynamic driving experience. The interior adds to the sporty feel, thanks to decorative, carbon-style trims, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and seats with integrated headrests. Skoda’s new flagship model range now includes a Sportline variant, offered in three performance levels. The Enyaq Sportline iV 60 has an output of 132 kW, while the Enyaq Sportline iV 80 produces 150 kW. Both feature rear-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive Enyaq Sportline iV 80x is equipped with two electric motors generating a combined output of 195 kW.
The Sportline variants are an integral part of Skoda’s model portfolio. The Czech car manufacturer is continuing with this tradition by adding the Enyaq Sportline iV to the line-up of its first all-electric SUV. The new variant comes with a sports chassis as standard that features model-specific springs and shock absorbers, and has been lowered by 15 mm at the front and 10 mm at the rear. Body-coloured bumpers and side sills further enhance the car’s sporty appearance. Whether fitted with rear- or all-wheel drive, the electric SUV boasts excellent traction, confidently transmitting the power generated by the electric drive system to the road in any situation. Because of how electric motors work, the car’s maximum torque is available immediately, even when pulling away.
Furthermore, the high-voltage battery fitted in the floor between the axles ensures a low centre of gravity, which has a positive effect on the vehicle’s agility and behaviour when cornering. Thanks to its model-specific sports chassis, the Enyaq Sportline iV can handle fast corners more dynamically and with less roll. The progressive steering, another standard feature, also allows for sportier handling.
The Enyaq Sportline iV 80x boasts two motors and all-wheel drive
The most powerful variant is the Enyaq Sportline iV 80x. Thanks to a second electric motor on the front axle, it transmits power to the road via all-wheel drive. The two motors have a combined output of 195 kW and offer a maximum torque of 425 Nm. The 80x is mainly driven by a permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PSM) on the rear axle, which delivers an output of 150 kW, a maximum torque of 310 Nm and maximum running speed of 16,000 rpm. The PSM is designed in an axially parallel configuration, along with the pulse inverter and a single-speed gearbox. It boasts a high power density and a high level of efficiency. Its power is consistent over a wide speed range with a constant power output. An asynchronous motor, designed with a pulse inverter and a single-speed gearbox in a coaxial arrangement, is used at the front. This has an output of 80 kW, a maximum torque of 162 Nm and maximum running speed of 13,500 rpm. Asynchronous motors are characterised by a short-term overload capability and low drag losses. They are thus perfect for short-term boosts. The Enyaq Sportline iV 80x is powered by a 82 kWh battery and can cover more than 500 km in the WLTP cycle. Its top speed is 160 km/h.
Two more powertrain variants available
The Enyaq Sportline iV 60 features rear-wheel drive with an electric motor on the rear axle delivering 132 kW. The Enyaq Sportline iV 80’s rear motor produces 150 kW.
New head-up display with augmented reality
The optional head-up display complements the Digital Cockpit’s standard 5.3-inch screen, making the Enyaq iV the first Skoda to offer augmented reality. Higher up on the windscreen – in close range and immediate view of the driver – is a projection zone. Here, larger symbols such as directional arrows from the navigation system are displayed and virtually projected onto the road ahead. The ignition is switched on by simply pressing the start button or applying the brakes, thanks to the KESSY keyless vehicle entry system. When leaving the vehicle, the ignition switches off automatically.
Innovative assistance systems help to prevent collisions
Skoda’s first all-electric SUV is one of the safest vehicles in its segment. In the Euro NCAP tests, it was given the highest-possible rating of five stars. The Enyaq Sportline iV can be equipped with any of the state-of-the-art assistance systems Skoda has to offer. Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian and Cyclist Protection, and Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert warn of collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and static obstacles. Front Assist can prevent an accident completely or at least minimise its consequences. New assistance systems also increase safety: In the event of an impending collision with a pedestrian, cyclist or other vehicle, for example, Collision Avoidance Assist supports the driver by intervening in the steering. The system enables a controlled evasive manoeuvre to prevent the accident from occurring. When turning left at junctions, Turn Assist detects oncoming traffic at an early stage, warns the driver and automatically brings the car to a stop if necessary. When a door is opened, Exit Warning alerts the occupant if another vehicle or a cyclist approaches from behind. It does this acoustically and visually via a light signal on the inside of the wing mirror housing.
