In a few weeks, Skoda will present its first e-SUV. The car manufacturer has now published images in advance that give a good impression of the exterior of the new electric car.
Skoda Enyak iV: First pictures show the new electric SUV
With its first fully electric SUV, the Enyaq iV, Skoda also wants to usher in a new era in terms of design. In a press release, the automaker emphasizes the “soulful lines” of the body and speaks of “balanced, dynamic proportions”. You can also get an idea of this for yourself, because before the official presentation of the Enyaq, Skoda has now published two design sketches of the E-SUV.

E-drive on a known basis
Skoda developed the Enyaq on the basis of the modular electric drive kit (MEB) from the parent company VW. This means that the group brands Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda have “a common platform for electric vehicles at their disposal for the first time.” It forms “the basis for the production of electric vehicles in the volume segment,” writes Volkswagen AG on its website.
27 models based on the MEB are to be created by the end of 2022. In 2028, 70 models across the group are to use their own electric drive, according to the Volkswagen website.
