AS day follows night it was inevitable that Skoda would not only enter the burgeoning electric vehicle market but would bring to it something a bit different, a bit sporty.

It has an impressive record among rallying and racing drivers and enthusiasts and any Skoda carrying the vRS badge is always a bit special. Enter the Enyaq vRS Coupe.

The Enyaq EV first appeared as an SUV in 2020 but Skoda added the vRS Coupe derivative to link with its sporting history at the end of 2022.

Our car was equipped with £2,700 of extras including electric comfort seat pack; 21-inch black metallic painted wheels; infotainment package plus with head-up display; heated/ cooling seats and heated windscreen and high quality Canton sound system.

The vRS Coupe gets a second electric motor to raise power, torque and performance and with it came all-wheel-drive for better grip on wintry roads and tauter handling.

Calling it a coupe may appear to be a trick to the eyes because it, to a lot of people, may resemble an SUV with only a subtle sliding difference to the roofline.

Whatever you think it is really brisk from breakaway with strong pull almost instantly and it can easily keep up with motorway traffic if you have a healthy amount of current keeping up the battery level underneath.

A driver can select about five different modes from eco to individual to tailor to taste and needs and it will not disappoint in any of them.

Skoda says the vRS Coupe range is towards the top end of 340 miles but in reality we used a combination of Eco and Sport modes and calculated our range was much closer to 240 miles with a couple of boosts during our time with the car.
