ŠKODA Ireland has confirmed that the new ŠKODA ENYAQ all electric SUV will arrive in Ireland in April of 2021. The news comes as the first official images of the new SUV are released.
For the Irish market – there will be ENYAQ iV 50 (55kWh battery, 340km range), the ENYAQ iV 60 (62kWh battery, 390km range) and the ENYAQ iV 80 (82kWh battery, 510km range). We now have the first indication of how these models will be equipped, though pricing is yet to be announced.
The brand has confirmed that the ENYAQ iV 50 (55kWh) comes with 18” steel wheels, LED headlights, dual-zone Climatronic, keyless go with cruise control, a 10” infotainment system, Bluetooth, Smartlink and 4-speakers.
Moving up to the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV 60 (62kWh) will add 19” alloy wheels, a rear parking sensor, power-folding mirrors/rain sensor wipers, black roof rails, a front centre armrest and a 13″ infotainment system with eight speakers.
The ENYAQ iV 80 / 80x (82kWh – 80x comes with 4WD) also has 19” alloy wheels, a front parking sensor, rear-view camera, chrome surrounding the windows and on the roof rails, a heated steering wheel and Drive Mode Select. The ENYAQ iV 80 is expected to make up the bulk of sales, followed by the ENYAQ iV 60.
ŠKODA Ireland Brand Director, John Donegan, said, “Despite the economic and industry challenges, we are confident of achieving our long-stated aim of achieving fourth position in the Irish market for 2020. With the arrival of the new Octavia this September we are determined to maintain this position in 2021.
By the end of 2022, ŠKODA will have more than ten electric or partially electric iV models in our range. This portfolio of new models, together with our strong dealer network and partnership with Volkswagen Financial Services puts the ŠKODA brand in an ideal position to challenge for the number two position in the Irish car market.”
Ireland will receive 270 units of the ŠKODA ENYAQ in 2021 with demand expected to outstrip supply of this new model. First to arrive will be the 80 models, followed closely by the 60 models and then the 50 a month later.
