The first electric Skoda drives

The "green island" is in these days is more of a gray island. Dark clouds from horizon to horizon, thick, cold drops of Rain blow across the Land. The ideal crap weather for automobile prototypes, to merge by their conspicuously inconspicuous Tarnbeklebung visually with the surroundings. And for the batteries of electric cars, an additional range test. Here, nearly a hundred kilometers to the southwest of Dublin, the Škoda engineers on the road, in order to give the prototypes of their upcoming electric SUV will be the penultimate cut.

Skoda now makes electric

Enyaq is the hope of the Czechs. Anyone who feels the name of an Irish New Age singer reminded that not so very wrong.

The "cooling fins", the cooling of the electric car, anyway, nothing more to become rods of Light. The left and right of the doors, large rear-view mirrors, see - through cameras like the competitors, the engineers have not been thinking at all. Skoda, With 4.6 meters in length, is the Škoda Enyaq a full-size SUV

With a length of 4.648 mm, 1.877 mm in width and 1.618 mm height of the Enyaq is positioned just below the Škoda Kodiaq, the SUV and the flagship of the Czechs. And so it is the dimensions that are roughly on a par with the Audi Q5, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, the Hyundai Nexo, the Jaguar I-Pace or the Jeep Cherokee. The wheelbase of 2.765 mm provides, especially in the interior for a decent space, the boot can hold 585 litres - that's more than most competitors, with an internal combustion engine.

Plenty of space and great Displays

the interior of The Kodiaq in the prototypes at least a glimpse, even if still not everything is unlocked. Space is abundant - front and back. For the necessary information of the driver, a 13 - inch, freestanding Central Display and a Head-up Display with Augmented Reality. The vehicle is continuously online, which makes for the latest Software. And, of course, for an environmentally correct electric car, built in Škoda's many sustainable materials - with olive leaves vegetable tanned leather for example.

the drive options Škoda in new ways. Five different performance variations, and three sizes of battery to choose from. In the entry-level version of a rear-mounted engine drives the two rear wheels. The E-Motor is fed from a Lithium-ion battery with a 55 kWh, of which 52 kWh of use. The unit produces 109 kW (148 HP) and the maximum reach is Škoda, with up to 340 kilometres. The stronger versions have a front second electric motor. The 132 kW (179 HP) machine the electricity from a 62 kWh battery (58 kWh net) is enough for up to 390 kilometres. Most of it comes when the rear-drive Version with a 150 kW Motor (204 HP) and a battery that holds 82 kWh (77 kWh net) - this should be enough for up to 500 kilometers.

500 km range should be in

the two versions with two motors and all-wheel drive, the Bars 195 and 225 kW (265 and 306 HP) are still Missing. The Top model comes to 460 km range, reaching a top speed of 180 km/h and needs for the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds - a half second less than a Porsche, Macan 2.0. Even on a wet road, the electronics provides for a lag-free traction. As a towing vehicle - not just the domain of electric cars - creates the strongest Enyaq up to 1,200 kilograms of load on the hook. The load times are, depending on the power connection and battery size of between eight hours to the household outlet and 40 minutes on the fast charging stations with 125 kW of power load.

Still, it needs a little fine-tuning of the prototypes, before the Enyaq can to the dealers. The propulsion is electric only pleasure vehicles. From the first Turn to the maximum torque is there and is pushing the SUV forward - quietly, without gear, unstoppable. The steering is now precise and direct, perhaps a little too sensitive to feedback from the road. Also, the suspension is already quite comfortable - only the rear axle rumbles occasionally, when the road is not too bad.

the New standards, Škoda wants to set the price. "Expensive, anyone can," says Björn Kröll, Škoda head of product management: "At launch, we will be in the ratio of price and performance is the Best." Produced the electric SUV will be the end of 2020, the market introduction is planned for the beginning of 2021. Purely from the size of the Enyaq files under the Kodiaq. Kröll: "Accordingly, it must be sold at a similar price." That would be a starting price of under € 30,000 for an electric SUV. So far, the segment of the goods in this vehicle, around 70,000 to 80,000 euros for the Mercedes EQC, the Hyundai Nexo, the Audi E-Tron or the Jaguar I-Pace is due. Most of them clearly have a more luxurious - but without any affordable Alternative. If even the state buying premium, you could be starting at 25,000 euros, with a lush electric SUV on the road.
