Skoda’s new EV will be discovered in full late upcoming yr, but when it comes it willl occupy a exclusive posture in the market as a single of the initially mainstream electric powered SUV coupes. Competition will swiftly arrive in the form of the Nissan Aryia, however. 

The entrance conclude of this mule is identical to the conventional Skoda Enyaq’s. It shares the very same sharp headlamps, broad grille, entrance doorways and tall journey-peak. On the other hand, from the B-pillar rearwards every little thing is new, with a new sloping roofline, tweaked rear doorways and a svelte tailgate, similar in design to those people discovered on the 2019 Skoda Eyesight iV idea.

Irrespective of the styling variations, the Enyaq coupe will be based mostly on the very same MEB platform as the conventional SUV – which signifies purchasers should be provided the very same powertrain array. Entry-level products will get a one 177bhp electric powered motor, though the array-topping vRS variant should characteristic a 302bhp twin-motor setup.
