CZECH car maker Skoda is expanding its all-electric Enyaq range with the addition of a new L&K model in the UK.
Introduced as part of a wide-ranging model year update that delivers improved performance, faster charging and longer driving ranges, the new variant becomes the first L&K model to be powered solely by electric.
Available in both SUV and Coupe guise, the new L&K model is named after brand founders Václav Laurin and Václav Klement and will offer a luxury interior, bespoke exterior styling setting it apart from the rest of the range, as well as extensive safety and digital features.
Priced from £51,340 for the SUV and £53,240 for the Coupe variant, the Enyaq L&K features a 77 kWh battery, a 286ps motor mounted on the rear axle and has a combined driving range of up to 345 miles for the Coupe and 342 miles for the SUV.
The new model is capable of accepting a DC rapid charge at speeds of up to 135 kW, and can charge from 10-80 per cent in as little as 28 minutes when connected to suitable DC rapid charger.
The 0-62mph acceleration time is 6.7 seconds while top speed is 111mph.
The design of the Enyaq L&K features exclusive Platinum Grey detailing on its model-specific bumpers, rear diffuser and exterior mirrors.
The window frames and roof rails are finished in chrome while the side skirts are painted in the body colour.
L&K models include Skoda's Crystal Face grille, which is illuminated by 131 LEDs that deliver a dramatic light signature at night.
Full LED matrix headlights, which can avoid dazzling oncoming cars are also fitted as standard, along with full LED rear lights.
Both Enyaq L&K models are equipped with 20-inch anthracite metallic alloy wheels with larger 21-inch wheels available as an option. The car also has privacy glass on the rear side windows and L&K badging on the front wings.
Inside, there's a choice of two Design Selections; L&K Shell and L&K Black. The former features beige leather upholstery as standard, while the latter comes with black leather.
Both feature front seats with ventilation and massage functions - which are exclusive to the L&K version.
The seats are controlled via the infotainment system, with occupants able to choose between ventilation, heating or a combination of the two. The massage function, along with position adjustment, can also be activated via the same screen.
L&K models also come with heated rear seats, a head-up display and CANTON sound system as standard, along with heated windscreen and L&K logos on the seats.
First deliveries expected later in 2024.
