an electric SUV with great ambitions

Put into production at the end of the year, the Skoda Enyaq could quickly become one of the best-selling electric cars in Europe.

If Volkswagen today concentrates a large part of the electric communication of the eponymous group, other brands are about to arrive on the market. After discreetly launching its small electric Citigo, Skoda is about to move up a gear with the Enyaq. A cousin of the Volkswagen ID.4, the SUV is the brand’s first model to use the MEB electric platform.

250 to 300 units per day

The new Enyaq started production at the end of November at the Czech factory in Mladá Boleslav. In total, the manufacturer has invested 32 million euros to adapt its production lines.

Between 250 and 350 copies of the model will be produced there each day. At the level of five days a week, that would give a production of 60,000 to 84,000 units in a full year. Maybe a little less if the site closes in August … Anyway, the goals are impressive. If demand is there, Skoda’s electric SUV could quickly be catapulted into the top-selling models in Europe.

An electric SUV with multiple configurations

In addition to its more expressive lines than those of the Volkswagen ID.4, the Skoda Enyaq is also distinguished by the range it offers. From the entry-level Enyaq 50 to the sportier Enyaq RS, 5 variants are listed in the catalog. Autonomy varies from 340 to 460 km depending on the version chosen.

In France, only three versions are marketed for the moment. At entry level, count less than 30,000 euros once the ecological bonus has been deducted.
