The Czech automaker has officially launched the Skoda Enyaq RS iV, which they introduced earlier this year (we reported). The e-SUV relies on two engines with 220 kW of power and all-wheel drive.
Skoda Enyaq RS iV launches
Back in February, the automaker unveiled the Skoda Enyaq RS iV, also as a coupe. Now the 2023 variant shows up in pictures, while the manufacturer provides additional details. The RS iV relies on two engines producing 220 kW and 460 Newton meters of torque.
The E-SUV is powered by all-wheel drive and thus accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds. A maximum top speed of 180 km/h is possible. These are the same key figures that the RS iV coupe offers.
By 2026, Skoda plans to offer three more all-new electric cars to further drive its electric offensive, likely including the new SUV Vision 7S. The aim is to offer the entire electric product range, from small cars to 7-seaters, and to increase the BEV share of deliveries in Europe to over 70 percent by 2030.
The Skoda Enyaq RS iV should make it to a range of over 500 kilometers according to WLTP and can be charged at a maximum of 135 kW, at least at suitable charging stations.
In addition to the two Design Selections RS Lounge and RS Suite and a comprehensive standard and safety equipment, you can also expect the option packages Advanced and Maxx. Furthermore, recycled and recyclable materials are installed, which means that the e-car is delivered CO2-neutral.
Sport suspension and space
Thanks to the standard sports suspension, progressive steering and all-wheel drive, the RS iV is characterized by high driving dynamics; in addition, the brand’s typically generous space for up to five people makes it the perfect companion for everyday driving.
The conceptual advantages of the Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB) from the Volkswagen Group, such as the elimination of the center tunnel and the long wheelbase of 2,768 millimeters, ensure plenty of legroom, especially in the rear. The trunk capacity is 585 liters, and after folding down the rear seat backrests, there is enough space for up to 1,710 liters of luggage.
Infotainment and safety
Since the Enyaq RS iV is always online, the vehicle software is always kept up to date with the help of over-the-air updates. At the same time, in addition to media content such as podcasts or videos, vehicle functions can also be called up on demand in this way, such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
All available safety system and up to nine airbags are offered. Matrix LED main headlights are on board as standard and Travel Assist now masters new features such as Urban Evasive Steering Support, which detects parked vehicles, roadworks, traffic islands or junctions, for example, and assists with evasive action in the event of an imminent collision with active steering interventions.
Price and availability
Details on the pricing of the Skoda Enyaq RS iV are currently not available. The RS iV coupe, however, starts at 61,960 euros, while the regular Enyaq iV starts at 42,100 euros at best.
