    Skoda Enyaq iV interiors revealed

    Skoda has previewed the interior of the new Enyaq iV, its first electric model built on the Volkswagen Group's MEB platform. The Skoda Enyaq iV unveiling will take place on September 1, 2020.

    Highlights

    • The MEB platform’s lack of transmission tunnel helps maximise interior space.
    • Skoda claims the cabin space on offer will be similar to the Kodiaq SUV’s, despite its smaller dimensions.
    • No plans have been announced aboutthe Enyaq iV coming to India.

    What platform does the Skoda Enyaq iV use?

    The Skoda Enyaq iV SUV uses the same underpinnings as the new Volkswagen ID.3 hatchback. Designers have exploited the MEB platform's lack of transmission tunnel and long wheelbase to create what, according to Skoda, is a visually airier cabin.

    What are the interiors of the Skoda Enyaq iV like?

    There are a number of new features making their debut on the Enyaq and are expected to appear on future Skoda EVs as well. These features include things like a storage cubby underneath the centre console and a multi-level dashboard.

    The carmaker has also announced that the all-electric SUV will have 585 litres of boot space, a 13-inch central touchscreen and a head-up display with augmented reality.

    As per Skoda’s claims, there will be generous legroom for rear passengers and that the interior space will be similar to the Kodiaq SUV’s, while being shorter than the new Octavia on sale in international markets.

    How many trim levels will the Skoda Enyaq have?

    Skoda says it has done away with the conventional trim-level structure of its current line-up, in favour of a range of new 'design selections', each of which use sustainably produced and recycled materials. They will be clearly split into separate 'themes', with an additional range of option packages available.

    What will the Skoda Enyaq be powered by?

    Skoda has confirmed that, similar to other MEB-based machines, the Enyaq will be offered with the choice of rear and four-wheel drive, three battery sizes and five power outputs. The largest battery will be a 125kW unit giving an official range of 500km.

    Will the Skoda Enyaq iV come to India?

    As things stand, it won’t. Currently, Skoda is focusing on updating current models in its India portfolio. The company has already launched the refreshed Superb and the Rapid 1.0 TSI sedans, along with the Karoq SUV. It will soon bring in the Kodiaq petrol as well. The carmaker is expected to introduce its midsize SUV,based on the Vision IN concept, in India by 2021.

    Internationally, however, the Enyaq is due to go on sale in 2021 and will be a key part of Skoda's plan to launch 10 electrified models under the iV sub-brand by the end of 2022.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!
