New Skoda Enyaq Coupe to join SUV in 2021
The Enyaq Coupe will have sleeker styling while sharing powertrains and equipment
- Skoda Enyaq Coupe spotted testing
- Should be more aerodynamic than Enyaq SUV
- vRS model likely
The Skoda Enyaq was only revealed last week but it seems Skoda is already working on a svelte coupe version of its new electric SUV. Spy photographers have captured an Enyaq with a swooping roofline in development, and we expect the coupe to join the SUV in showrooms next year.
It’s not confirmed that the Enyaq coupe will be sold in the UK (in China you can buy a Skoda Kodiaq GT coupe) but if it does come to Britain, the Enyaq coupe will be a little bit more expensive than the regular SUV. Prices should still start from under £35,000 once the government’s plug-in car grant (PiCG) is taken into account.
Through the camouflage, it’s clear that the front end will be carried over wholesale from the SUV. Behind the front doors, however, the roofline swoops down to the rear lights, like a saloon. The roofline is reasonably similar to the Skoda Octavia and Skoda Superb, and this car will get a hatchback tailgate too. Practicality may be affected slightly but the Skoda Enyaq Coupe will still be a spacious car.
The electric powertrains will also be shared with the Enyaq SUV but the coupe may only feature a selection of them. Buyers of the SUV get a choice of 60kWh or 80kWh batteries, and the option of rear- or four-wheel drive. A Skoda Enyaq iV vRS has been confirmed, with 302bhp and a 6.2-second 0-62mph time.
You can expect between 260 and 316 miles between charges in the SUV, depending on the spec, but the more streamlined shape of the Enyaq coupe could enhance the car’s efficiency. It can fully recharge in 6-8 hours from a home charger, while fast-charging at up to 125kW can top up the battery to 80% in just over half an hour.
