Skoda’s first electric car, the Enyaq iV, is due here next June with pre-grant prices starting from €46,570 for the Enyaq 60 and €54,630 for the Enyaq 80, writes Trish Whelan.
However, demand has already outstripped supply with the 350 allocation for 2021 already sold out even before the car arrives here.
The aggressively styled, five-seat all-electric SUV, Enyaq 60, has a range of 390km thanks to a 58kWh battery while the ’80’ version (expected to make up the bulk of Irish sales) has a 77kWh battery and is capable of up to 510km (WLTP rated).
The iV 60 comes with a generous standard equipment list which includes 19-inch Proteus alloy wheels, Front Parking Sensors, LED headlights, Climate Control and a 13-inch infotainment while the iV 80 gains heated steering wheel, drive mode select, adaptive cruise control and 3-zone climate control.
All vehicles are priced exclusively with a 3-year service and tyre plan. The brand estimates that grants of up to €7,800 could be claimed resulting in customer ‘on the road’ pricing from €38,762 for the iV 60.
