Series production of the new Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV has started at Skoda Auto’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav. Like the successful, fully-electric Enyaq iV, it is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB). More than 120 units of the elegant coupe will be produced every day at the main plant alongside the Enyaq iV, Octavia and Octavia iV model series.
Michael Oeljeklaus, Skoda Auto Board Member for Production and Logistics, emphasises: “Last year, we produced 50,000 units of the Skoda Enyaq iV. Now we are taking it to the next level by launching production of the new Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV. I would like to congratulate the team on the successful completion of the preparation phase. It’s a great honour for the entire team that the coupe version of our successful electric SUV is also being produced at the heart of the brand, in Mladá Boleslav.”
In future, 2000 employees will be assembling more than 120 units of the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV a day on the same production line as the Enyaq iV and Octavia. The two Enyaq iV variants are the only models based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB) to roll off a European assembly line outside Germany.
The emotive Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV combines sporty lines with generous space and offers a boot capacity of 570 litres. The panoramic glass roof, which comes as standard, is the largest in SKODA’s portfolio and makes up the entire roof. At the same time, it is thinner than the full roof, giving passengers extra headroom.
The drag coefficient has been improved over the Skoda Enyaq iV. It stands at cd 0.234 and contributes to high efficiency of the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV. Depending on the configuration, the maximum range is up to 339 miles in the WLTP cycle, making the Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV particularly suitable for long journeys.
As part of its Next Level – Skoda Strategy 2030, the carmaker is committed to electrifying its model portfolio: By 2030, it will have launched at least three more all-electric models below the Enyaq iV in terms of size and price. The aim is to increase the Skoda brand’s share of all-electric models sold in Europe to between 50 and 70 per cent by 2030, depending on market developments. This is how the company aims to reduce its fleet emissions by more than 50 per cent compared to 2020. At the same time, Skoda Auto is working to develop its home country, the Czech Republic, into an electromobility hub; E-components or E-vehicles are to be manufactured at all three Czech Skoda Auto sites in Mladá Boleslav, Kvasiny and Vrchlabí by 2030 to safeguard jobs and create new ones.
