Skoda’s new electric SUV, Enyaq iV, is partially revealing its prices for France, and will start on September 15, 2020 from € 40,800 excluding bonus.
It is electric and imposing, the Skoda Enyaq iV. With these two attributes, he was sure he was not given. But after the presentation in pictures and figures, the SUV ultimately does not advertise elite prices.
Received 2 out of 5, before the full offer in 2021
The Czech brand thus communicates the prices of its latest addition, but with only 2 of the 5 versions. The range begins with the Enyaq iV 60, with a power of 132 kW (177 hp) and 390 km of autonomy, from € 40,800. The second model is the Enyaq iV 80, at 150 kW (204 hp) and the longest range of 510 km, at € 47,300. Skoda evokes 5 interiors, however only one “Loft” is initially open. The equipment is not known in detail, however including the matrix LED headlights and the 13-inch central screen.
Orders open on September 15, 2020, but the lineup isn’t stuck. The base price will decrease at the start of 2021 with the arrival of an Enyaq iV 50. This version with 109 kW (146 hp) and 340 km of range could target € 35,000 in France, or € 28,000 after bonus.
Then the 4WD variants will complete the catalog. The 195 kW (265 hp) Enyaq iV 80x and the powerful 225 kW (306 hp) RS are missing. These two models will exceed 50,000 € and will have 460 km of autonomy. An anniversary “Founder’s Edition” series of 1,895 copies – like the year it was founded – will also support the range, as will the Coupé bodywork that the Vision iV concept foreshadowed.
Cheaper than diesel!
With such prices, Skoda hits hard, especially compared to some electric models. Example, the DS3 Crossback E-Tense starts at $ 39,990, but is 54cm shorter than the Enyaq. The latter, however, targets the price / quality ratio and not the top of the range, but the difference is shocking.
Closer, the Kia e-Niro and Peugeot e-2008 around € 37,000 do not offer the same roominess, power or range of the Skoda either. For a similar price and size, at € 48,990, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has certain advantages. If the American inclines in autonomy (450 vs 510 km), it exceeds the Enyaq iV 80 in power (258 hp).
More concrete, the difference with the equivalent diesel Skoda Kodiaq TDI 150 hp is 3,180 €. With the bonus, the Enyaq iV becomes more attractive by € 4,638, with the CO2 penalty! In gasoline (TSI 150 DSG), the difference is reduced to 530 €. Finally, it will be interesting to see the price list of cousin Volkswagen ID.4, soon presented.
