SKODA is updating its Enyaq iV electric model to improve the infotainment set up, the car's safety systems and faster DC charging.
The updated model will offer speeds of up to 135kW, up from 125kW, for all Enyaq iV 80 models built from January 2022.
This will deliver reduced charging times for drivers when fast charging on a suitable 150kW-plus public charger.
Enyaq iV 60 models will be able to charge at speeds up to 120kW up from 100kW.
The Enyaq 80x, all-wheel drive model also get a new ‘Traction mode' which is activated via the driving mode screen on the infotainment system,
Traction mode increases ASR (anti-slip regulation) and provides optimal drive distribution between the front and rear axle.
A new Battery Care mode, which is also controlled via the infotainment screen, has been designed to set the optimal charging settings for extending the life of the battery. When activated the next charging process will charge to a maximum of 80 per cent.
The graphic displays of the infotainment system have also been updated to deliver more information.
Drivers using the navigation system will be able to see an estimated battery level on arrival when a destination is programmed. This is particularly useful in planning charging stops.
In addition, the charging screen has been redesigned to show more information plus extra functionality including AC charge options and predefined charging and preconditioning for the cabin.
Cars fitted with Skoda's Assisted Drive Package Plus with Travel Assist now have additional features including Narrow Lane Assist where the car recognises temporary yellow lines, barriers and cars in the next lane and guides the car through narrowed spaces.
In addition, the steering wheel travel assist button will now allow drivers to toggle between travel assist modes as well as activating and de-activating the system. When the vehicle is started again the last mode used will be active.
