Skoda improves Enyaq line-up for 2024
The revised model range now boast greater range, power and standard equipment
Skoda's Enyaq electric SUV has been updated for increased power, faster charging capabilities, additional standard features and a boost in driving range.
Enhancements to the battery and energy management software, which are implemented across all models, means that the base Enyaq 60 gains an extra three miles of range, totaling 249 miles from its 58kWh battery. The electric motor retains its output of 177bhp.
However, the mid-range Enyaq 80, now renamed the Enyaq 85, gains more substantial upgrades. Equipped with a 77kWh battery, the Enyaq 85 boasts an official range of up to 351 miles and a power output of 282bhp – representing a 12-mile increase in range and an additional 81bhp compared to its predecessor. Acceleration from 0 to 62mph now takes just 6.7 seconds, a nearly two-second improvement over the Enyaq 80.
The all-wheel drive Enyaq 80x has also evolved into the Enyaq 85x, with an 11-mile range boost, bringing it to 328 miles. Furthermore, the dual-motor setup's total power output has been raised to 282bhp, meaning 0 to 62mph in 6.6 seconds and a higher top speed, up from 99mph to 112mph.
The range-topping Enyaq vRS gains an extra 40bhp, resulting in a combined power output of 335bhp from its two electric motors. This means a full second off its initial 0-62mph time, now taking 5.5 seconds.
For charging speeds, both the dual-motor Enyaq 85x and vRS now benefit from 175kW - fast enough for a 10 to 80 percent charge in 28-minutes for their 77kWh batteries.
Beyond these mechanical enhancements, a range of menus and screens in all but the base model have been revamped to improve usability. These updates include graphics for navigation, climate control and the digital driver's display.
The entry-level Enyaq 60, with a starting price of £38,970, will continue to serve as the entry point, however comes with some extra standard equipment for 2024, which includes driver attention alert, speed assist and traffic sign recognition.
Two new models, the Enyaq 60 Edition and Enyaq 85 Edition, will be priced from £40,585 and £44,540, respectively. These Edition models include lots of extra standard equipment, such as keyless entry and start, adaptive cruise control, full LED matrix headlights and heated front seats and steering wheel.
The Enyaq vRS's price has only increased by £450 to reach £53,120. This version now includes rear window blinds, electronic child locks, rear USB-C charging ports, rear side airbags and tow bar preparation as standard.
Notably, the Enyaq Coupe has received the same power, equipment and range improvements as the SUV variant, and will start from £46,440 in the 85 Edition configuration.
The refreshed Enyaq range will be available for ordering starting on October 31.
