Skoda has a sleeker electric SUV in the works.
The Czech brand has teased its upcoming Enyaq Coupe iV in a single teaser image ahead of its official reveal on January 31, 2022.
To point out the obvious, the Enyaq Coupe iV is a sleeker version of the regular Enyaq iV SUV with a steeply-raked rear window and fastback profile, much like the Volkswagen ID.5 is a sleeker version of the ID.4.
Skoda claims the Enyaq Coupe iV has a best-in-class drag coefficient of just 0.234, which is around 0.04 less than that of the regular Enyaq iV SUV.
It says this is due to the sloped rear end and “understated” boot-lip spoiler.
In September 2021, Skoda showed off the coupe SUV in prototype form covered in a camouflage wrap.
Compared to the regular Enyaq iV, the coupe variant is 4mm longer at 4563mm, has the same 1879mm width, is 1mm taller at 1617mm, and has the same 2765mm wheelbase.
Despite its coupe SUV silhouette, Skoda says the Enyaq Coupe iV will have a boot capacity of 570L, which is only 15L less than its SUV counterpart.
Like the regular Enyaq model, the coupe variant will feature an illuminated grille with 131 LEDs.
Skoda has confirmed the Enyaq Coupe will stay close to the regular Enyaq model in terms of powertrains, technology and equipment.
The Enyaq Coupe iV will be available with either rear- or all-wheel drive electric powertrains that Skoda claims will produce between 132 to 220kW of power.
Skoda has previously said there’ll be two different battery pack sizes available, either a 62kWh or 82kWh.
Directly comparing these to the regular Enyaq, the entry-level rear-wheel drive Enyaq 50 iV produces 109kW and 220Nm of torque and has a 55kWh battery, whereas the top-of-the-range all-wheel drive Enyaq RS iV has 225kW and 460Nm with a larger 82kWh battery.
It’s unclear how many trim levels Skoda will offer the Enyaq Coupe iV in at this stage.
Inside the coupe SUV, Skoda has said it’ll offer “eco-friendly materials” in the Enyaq Coupe iV with three different upholstery packages.
It’s unclear if or when the Enyaq Coupe iV will come to Australia but its SUV counterpart is firming for Australia, with Skoda aiming to confirm an arrival time in 2022.
