AFTER teasing the public with a design sketch in early January, Skoda has now put flesh on the bones of its new Enyaq iV Coupe with the release of full details and images - and it's a stunner!
And the Czech maker has revealed that its elegant new coupé will even come with a sporty four-wheel drivevRS variant - the first time the vRS treatment has been applied to an all-electric model.
And it will live up to the expectations of vRS enthusiasts. With a system output of 220kW and a massive 460Nm of torque, it will cover the 0-60mph sprint in a shade under 6.5 seconds and go on to a top speed of 111mph.
The vRS sits at the top of a three-model line-up all of which use the same 82kWh battery. The entry-level model - dubbed the Coupe iV 80 - comes with rear wheel drive and a 150kW power output while customers wanting four-wheel-drive can opt for the iV Coupe 80x which has a system output of 195kW. Skoda quotes a potential driving range of up to 339 miles for the entry level model.
Apart from the stunningly raked coupe profile and panoramic glass roof - the biggest in the Skoda range - the Coupe shares many of its features with the Enyaq SUV but adds a model specific front apron and body coloured side mouldings,
And, just as with the SUV, rather than a range of trim levels -- the Coupe's interior features coordinated Design Selections with ten themed packages and a range of individual options, using many natural, sustainably processed and recycled materials. There will, however, be a SportLine trim which will share many features with the vRS.
Standard features across the range include a 13-inch central infotainment screen and a 5.3-inch Digital Cockpit, which can optionally be supplemented by a head-up display with augmented reality. All three variants come with dual-zone Climatronic, a two-spoke multifunction heated leather steering wheel and a keyless start button.
The SportLine and vRS feature a lowered sports chassis, 20-inch black alloys, full-LED Matrix headlights and sporty design details including gloss black trim on the grille surround, window trim and rear diffuser with the vRS also getting a full-length red reflector on its rear bumper providing a family link to Skoda's other vRSmodels.
As yet Skoda are not revealing when the Enyaq iV Coupe will be launched in the UK.
