Skoda Enyaq iV coming to India by the end of FY24
After confirming the news of the Skoda Superb's return to India, Skoda India has now announced that the Skoda Enyaq iV will go on sale in 2024 as the first EV offering from the Czech brand. The Enyaq iV is already offered in Europe and a few international markets outside Europe as well and India will be next.
Speaking to Petr olc, the brand director for Skoda India, he confirmed that the Enyaq is already undergoing internal tests in the country. As part of the India 2.0 plan, the brand's aim is to transform Skoda into the largest European brand in the country, leading to focus on more mass-market offerings.
The entry-level version is the Skoda Enyaq iV 50 with its 55kWh battery, powering a rear-mounted electric motor with 148PS and 220Nm of torque. It is good for a range of 355km on the WLTP cycle and can sprint from 0 to 100kmph in 11.3 seconds.
Then there is the Enyaq iV 60, which has a 413km range while being powered by a 179PS motor and fed by a 62kWh battery pack. This motor is capable of doing the 0 to 100kmph sprint in just 8.7 seconds.
While there is a bigger battery pack available globally with a number of different power outputs, we could expect only one of the above-mentioned powertrains to debut in India.
On the inside the driver gets a 5.3-inch digital driver's display and a new HUD with AR. There is also a large 13-inch central infotainment screen and a small bank of physical buttons. Skoda says that the long wheelbase of this platform has freed up more space on the inside as well as in the boot, which is a sizeable 585 litres. Upto nine airbags and a slew of driver assistance and connected-car tech are also on offer.
Skoda India also stated that they plan to bring more EVs next year to test in India. India is considered to be a very fast developing market for Skoda and based on the feedback of the Enyaq, Skoda India will take their next step in the country.
