Following the successful launch of the ENYAQ iV, SKODA is now adding an elegant coupé to the range. The line-up will also include a sporty vRS variant. The SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV features an even more emotive design and, displaying sporty lines, generous space and a boot capacity of 570 l. At a value of 0.234, its drag coefficient (cd) has also been improved in comparison to the ENYAQ iV SUV.
Depending on specification, this enables a range of up to 339 miles (545 km) in the WLTP cycle, making the car perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. In the UK the coupé will be available with one battery size and a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, and three power outputs ranging from 150 kW to 220 kW (vRS variant) for the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV. As with the ENYAQ iV, Design Selections replace the classic trim levels for the interior.
Thomas Schäfer, SKODA AUTO CEO, says: “Following the successful launch of the SUV, the new ENYAQ COUPÉ iV brings even more emotiveness, sports styling and elegance to the SKODA iV family. Our designers and engineers have once again succeeded in combining a high degree of functionality with an emotive design. The brand-new range-topping model is also the first-ever all-electric SKODA vRS. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV perfectly combines emotion with efficiency, offering the SKODA-typical generous amounts of space, even in a particularly elegant body.”
The new SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV and the ENYAQ iV are produced at SKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making them the only MEB-based Volkswagen Group vehicles in Europe to be built outside of Germany. Due to its composition and a long wheelbase, the MEB modular electric car platform enables new options in terms of body proportions and design. As the high-voltage battery for the drive system is fully incorporated into the underbody, and because electric vehicles don’t have a transmission tunnel, the space available for rear-seat passengers is also particularly generous.
Dark tinted panoramic glass roof as standard and gently rearward sloping roofline
The new SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV features an even more emotive design than the SUV variant and, in addition to a SportLine derivative, is also available as an athletic range-topping model, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS. This model features a discrete sporty front apron as well as body‑coloured side skirts and is equipped with alloy wheels measuring between 19 and 21 inches. From the B-pillar, the roofline gently slopes towards the rear and merges with the tailgate that features a sharp trailing edge. The vehicle’s lines are further accentuated by the dark tinted panoramic glass roof, which is a standard feature for the coupé. It is the largest panoramic glass roof in the SKODA range, spanning the entire roof and seamlessly merging with the rear window. It is thinner than the full roof, providing plenty of headroom for the car’s occupants. The panoramic glass roof allows more daylight into the interior, giving the car a more airy feel. Its coating helps to ensure that the climate within the cabin is pleasant at all times. Just as with the ENYAQ iV, the coupé is available with the optional Crystal Face where the vertical ribs of the striking SKODA grille are illuminated by 131 LEDs, while a horizontal light strip rounds off the car’s stunning look. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS comes with the Crystal Face as standard.
One battery size and three power variants including the range-topping ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS
The new coupé is available in three performance levels. Power output starts at 150kW with the rear-wheel drive ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80, which is equipped with 82-kWh battery (net: 77 kWh) and produces 150 kW. In addition, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80x and ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS feature a second motor on the front axle, making them all-wheel-drive.
The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80x has a system output of 195 kW, while the top-of-the-range ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS delivers as much as 220 kW and a maximum torque of 460 Nm. This is the first-ever all-electric SKODA vRS. Characteristic features include a particularly dynamic driving performance, a host of black design details, and the full-length red reflector strip at the rear that is typical of the brand’s vRS models. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS takes just 6.5 seconds to sprint from 0 to 62 mph and reaches a top speed of 111mph and is available in the striking Hyper Green paintwork.
Increased efficiency and range thanks to excellent aerodynamics
The outstanding aerodynamics of SKODA’s brand-new all-electric coupé – which, boasting a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234, are even better than the already excellent cd value set by the ENYAQ iV – contribute to the car’s high level of efficiency. The low drag has a significant impact on the vehicle’s maximum range, which is up to 339 miles (545 km) in the WLTP cycle for the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80. Its fast‑charging capability makes the new coupé perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. Equipped with the optional tow bar, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV can tow trailers weighing up to 1,400 kg on gradients of 8%.
Interior with Design Selections, a 13-inch screen and head-up display with augmented reality
Just as with the SUV, the coupé’s interior features holistically coordinated Design Selections based on modern living environments and using natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials. The clear structure of the choices available, including ten cleverly arranged themed packages and select individual options, make car configuration much easier. Standard features include a 13-inch central infotainment screen and the 5.3-inch Digital Cockpit, which can optionally be supplemented by a head-up display with augmented reality.
Electric powertrain: 82-kWh battery and three power variants
Power output ranges from 150 kW in the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80 with rear-wheel drive and a 82-kWh battery, to 220 kW in the all‑wheel-drive ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS fitted with two electric motors. The new coupé’s outstanding aerodynamics contribute to its high level of efficiency, enabling a range of up to 339 miles (545 km) in the WLTP cycle. This, as well as its fast-charging capability, means that the car is perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. The SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV is based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. Rolling off the line at SKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV and ENYAQ iV are the only MEB-based models in Europe to be produced outside Germany.
Two motors and four-wheel drive: the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80x
The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80x is also fitted with the 82-kWh battery, but has a second electric motor on the front axle, making it all-wheel-drive. The two motors provide a combined power output of 195 kW and a maximum torque of 425 Nm. This model’s top speed, as well as that of the rear‑wheel-drive variants, is 100 mph (160 km/h).
Sporty range-topping model: the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS
The most powerful car in the ENYAQ iV range is also fitted with the 82 kWh battery, as well as two electric motors. It is therefore also an all-wheel-drive. The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS has a system output of 220 kW and achieves a maximum torque of 460 Nm. As a result, SKODA’s first all‑electric vRS model can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 6.5 seconds; it is the only coupé variant in the range to reach a top speed of 111 mph (178 km/h) . On gradients of 8%, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS and ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80x each have a maximum towing capacity of 1,400 kg, while the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV 80 can tow braked trailers weighing up to 1,200 kg.
Fast-charging capability: from 10 to 80% in 29 minutes
The SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV is capable of fast charging. The 82‑kWh battery can be topped up from 10 to 80% in just 29 minutes. At home, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV can be conveniently charged overnight in six to eight hours using an AC SKODA iV Charger wall box delivering up to 11 kW. ‘Refuelling’ at a public AC charging point with the same maximum power will take about as long. That’s why the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV comes with a Mode 3 charging cable as standard. The coupé can also be recharged with 2.3 kW using a conventional 230-volt household socket and an optional Mode 2 cable. The iV universal charger – a mobile solution with interchangeable connector plugs – provides maximum flexibility and is available as an optional extra. A CEE adapter enables recharging with up to 11 kW using a 400‑volt socket, while a Schuko adapter enables charging at household sockets.
High levels of efficiency thanks to outstanding aerodynamics and optional heat pump
The drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234, which is outstanding for an SUV coupé of this size, enables high levels of efficiency and thus long ranges. This top value is the result of SKODA-typical Simply Clever solutions, such as an active cooling roller blind in the lower air inlet of the front bumper and numerous aerodynamic measures that specifically guide the airstream around the body or under the vehicle. To this end, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV features an optimised front apron, front spoiler, a covered and flat underbody, air curtains and a rear spoiler. The optional heat pump for heating and air conditioning the interior provides even greater efficiency. A highly efficient heat pump system compresses refrigerant under high pressure. This produces heat, which is used to warm up cold air flowing into the car, meaning less energy from the vehicle battery is required to power the high-voltage heater, thereby increasing the vehicle’s range.
Connectivity: state-of-the-art infotainment with the largest SKODA display and new functions
The launch of the brand-new ENYAQ COUPÉ iV also sees SKODA introduce a new variant of its infotainment system. The latest software version ME 3 brings updates to the infotainment and head-up display, as well as improved battery management. The largest SKODA touchscreen, measuring 13 inches, and the 5.3-inch Digital Cockpit come as standard in the new coupé. The permanent internet connection enables the use of the SKODA Connect online services, many of which are specifically designed for an electric vehicle. The features included allow battery charging or the interior’s air conditioning to be controlled remotely via the MySKODA app.
Like the ENYAQ iV, the new SKODA coupé comes equipped with a 5.3-inch Digital Cockpit that clearly displays information regarding speed, driving data, navigation and assistance systems. The four different cockpit layouts, as well as numerous vehicle functions and assistance systems, can be controlled via the multifunction steering wheel. The optional head-up display projects additional information in clear view for the driver. The free-standing central screen, as found in the ENYAQ iV, and measuring 13 inches, is the largest in SKODA’s current portfolio. The layouts can be personalised and the touchscreen can be operated using a touch slider, multi-touch gestures, gesture control or the Laura digital voice assistant who, backed by online data, understands 15 languages. A DAB digital radio receiver as well as internet and hybrid radio come as standard. Wireless SmartLink, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay allow a smartphone to be integrated without requiring a cable while devices can be wirelessly charged. The CANTON sound system with twelve speakers and a digital equaliser is another optional extra.
‘Over-the-air’ updates and additional features to download
Thanks to a built-in eSIM, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV is always online. This allows navigation maps or the system software to be updated remotely and offers users the option to download further vehicle functions. From the second half of 2022, additional colours for the ambient lighting, Adaptive Cruise Control or Light Assist, for example, can be activated via the infotainment system in the vehicle or the SKODA Connect web portal – these features may also be activated for a limited period of time only, if desired.
SKODA Connect features specific to an all-electric vehicle
The permanent internet connection also enables the use of numerous online-backed services. Traffic information is based on real-time data obtained from the internet, as is the route planner of the optional navigation function. Likewise, available parking spaces nearby can be displayed. Some options in the comprehensive range of SKODA Connect online services have been specifically designed for the operation of an electric vehicle. The MySKODA app can be used to remotely control battery charging or switch on the air conditioning ahead of the journey. It is also possible to set corresponding schedules. The navigation system can identify charging points nearby or on a planned route.
New software functions
The SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV has the latest ME 3 software version of Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform with new features and upgrades. For example, the control of the vehicle’s air conditioning and the management of the high-voltage battery have been optimised, which now includes a battery care mode. The new ME 3 vehicle software improves battery management and increases efficiency and service life by initiating the battery’s temperature control at lower temperatures than before and no longer only switching it on and off but continuously monitoring and adjusting it. As a result, the drive battery reaches its ideal temperature window quicker. This ensures optimised power output and recuperation. There are also new layouts for the infotainment system, and the main menu now features an icon for vehicle charging, as well as new icons for augmented reality functions. In addition, the increased brightness and contrast of the rear-view camera display make parking and detecting obstacles even easier, especially in the dark. A new function of the intelligent Park Assist feature now also allows frequently accessed parking spaces to be stored in the system and automatically executed on demand. The ME 3 software offers an upgraded multi-stop route planner and the new assistance system Travel Assist 2.5. Lane Assist can be switched off via ‘Favourites’, making it even easier for the driver to access.
Safety: head-up display with augmented reality and advanced assistance systems
The SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV features a head-up display with augmented reality, full-LED Matrix headlights and a high level of passive safety with up to nine airbags. Travel Assist 2.5 provides support with longitudinal and lateral steering, while other clever assistance systems warn of potential collisions or make parking more convenient. The head-up display provides the driver with even more targeted information so they don’t have to take their eyes off the road, while the full-LED Matrix headlights provide greater safety when visibility is poor, allowing the driver to leave the high beam on at all times.
Following the SKODA debut for the head-up display with augmented reality that launched with the ENYAQ iV, this feature is now also available as an option for the SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV. It projects information for the driver onto two different areas of the windscreen. The car’s speed and detected traffic signs, navigation instructions and information from the assistance systems are displayed just above the dashboard in clear view for the driver. Higher up on the windscreen, in the larger projection zone for augmented reality, larger symbols such as directional arrows from the navigation system are displayed and virtually projected onto the road up ahead, also in clear view for the driver. Information relating to Adaptive Lane Assist or Adaptive Cruise Control is also shown here, as are traffic signs and warnings. The driver can individually adjust the position of the display area on the windscreen, set the colour and brightness, and select what information is to be shown in the infotainment system menu.
Up to nine airbags and proactive Crew Protect Assist
The SKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV can be equipped with up to nine airbags. Driver and front passenger airbags are fitted as standard, as are front side airbags and two curtain airbags, which cover the side windows in the first and second rows of seats. A central airbag between the front seats reduces the impact between the driver and front passenger in the event of a collision. Two side airbags for the outer rear seats are optional. If the sensors detect an impending collision, the driver initiates a sudden braking manoeuvre, or the car is in danger of skidding or tipping over, the proactive Crew Protect Assist feature will automatically take precautions to protect the vehicle’s occupants. The system will then tension the seat belts and close any open windows.
All SKODA assistance systems available
For maximum levels of active and passive safety, the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV has been fitted with all of SKODA’s assistance systems. Travel Assist 2.5 provides active support for longitudinal and lateral steering and comprises Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Adaptive Lane Assist including roadwork recognition, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist. The system is activated at the touch of a button, which is located on the multifunction steering wheel, keeping the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV in its current lane and automatically monitoring the distance to the vehicle in front. In congested traffic, Travel Assist 2.5 can autonomously bring the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV to a stop, make it pull away and follow other vehicles. At speeds of over 90 km/h, the system now assists in changing lanes on the motorway when the indicator is activated, and it provides steering support through tight corners. Travel Assist 2.5 displays the vehicle’s surroundings on the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV’s screens, allowing the driver to see any objects the vehicle sensors detect. The current version of the system can take over lateral steering in narrow spaces in the city using online information based on current swarm data.
Adaptive Cruise Control, which in its predictive version also incorporates data from the navigation system and detected traffic signs, is now also able to react to obstacles reported via online traffic data. The Travel Assist 2.5 function requires the driver to keep their hands on the steering wheel. If the vehicle detects that the driver is no longer steering, braking or accelerating, Emergency Assist attempts to initially warn them visually, then acoustically and ultimately by jolting the brakes. If the driver fails to react, the hazard lights are activated, the vehicle is brought to a standstill in its current lane, and eCall is triggered.
Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian and Cyclist Protection and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Traffic Alert warn of collisions with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and static obstacles. Collision Avoidance Assist supports the driver in the event of an impending collision with a pedestrian, cyclist or another vehicle by actively amplifying the steering moment to prevent the accident. When turning left at junctions, Turn Assist warns of detected oncoming traffic at an early stage, automatically bringing the car to a stop if necessary. When a door is opened, Exit Warning alerts the occupant if another vehicle or a cyclist is approaching from behind. It does this acoustically and visually via a light signal on the inside of the wing mirror housing.
New assistance functions for parking
The optional Park Assist feature automatically manoeuvres the vehicle into and out of parallel and bay parking spaces and can now also brake automatically and prevent the car from colliding with pedestrians or objects. With the Trained Parking feature, the system records the route into a frequently used parking space, for example in a narrow and awkward driveway, and can automatically repeat this route at any time. Area View is even better than the optional rear-view camera, as its four cameras create a 360-degree top-down image of the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV’s immediate surroundings.
High beam can be left on at all times thanks to the optional full-LED Matrix headlights
The ENYAQ COUPÉ iV’s optional full-LED Matrix headlights significantly increase safety when driving in the dark. Each Matrix high-beam module contains 24 LEDs, which can be controlled individually and enables the driver to have the high beam on at all times without dazzling other road users. If a camera on the windscreen detects vehicles as well as people and objects reflecting the light, the intelligent lighting technology automatically turns off individual segments of the light beam.
