Skoda previewed its upcoming all-electric Enyaq Coupe iV in a design sketch ahead of its unveil january 31. The sketch takes a closer look at the upcoming all-electric SUV coupe, revealing a few design changes from the standard Enyaq, aside from the obvious roofline.
- The Evaq Coupé iV to debut on January 31
- Should share battery options with standard EV
According to the sketch, the Evyaq Coupe carries much of the design of the standard EV, but what immediately stands out is the coupe-like sloping roofline and the modified window line on the sides. The sketch also shows a more aggressive front bumper.
Previous teasers have revealed that the coupe features such things as the illuminated butterfly grille, headlights and taillights of the standard Enyaq with the cabin design which should also mirror the regular electric SUV.
Skoda claims a drag coefficient of 0.234 for its new coupe-SUV, which is said to be the best in its class and makes the new model “particularly efficient to drive”.
The Enyaq Coupe will likely be available with the same batteries as the standard car, although the improved drag coefficient should allow the Coupe to offer slightly more range than standard EVs. As with the standard Enyaq, the coupe is expected to be available with either 58 kWh or 77 kWh batteries.
Skoda has not confirmed whether it will offer the same variety of powertrain setups in the coupe. The standard Enyaq can be fitted with a rear-mounted engine of 179 hp or 204 hp, or one motor on each axle for a combined output of 266 hp.
Skoda’s upcoming launches in India
Skoda started the year with the launch of the petrol Skoda Kodiaq facelift. The automaker is eyeing the launch of six new models (some new and some variants), with a target of selling 70,000 cars this year. The Kodiaq is the first of the new launches, the next is expected to be the all-new Slavia midsize sedan in March. Also on the cards, a new Monte Carlo finish for the Kushaq midsize SUV.
The automaker also plans to bring the standard Enyaq iV to India, but it remains to be seen if this upcoming coupe could do that as well.
