Skoda recently announced their upcoming electric crossover would becalled the Enyaq, and now spy photographers have caught the vehicle undergoing testing in Europe.
Snapped wearing modest amounts of camouflage, the Enyaq is Skoda’s version of theVolkswagen ID.4.
While the two models will share a number of similarities, the Enyaq features a prominent grille which is hidden behind a fake cover. Nothing is official, but the grille could resemble the one used on last year’sVision iV concept.
Speaking of the Vision iV, the Enyaq’s front fascia closely echoes theconcept. However, it appears less angular and more aerodynamic.
Moving further back, we can see relatively plain bodywork and a greenhouse that mimics theID.4. The model also has a unique tailgates and a conservative rear end.
The interior will likely echo the one found in theID.3and ID.4. This means we can expect a digital instrument cluster, a freestanding infotainment system and a handful of Skoda-specific touches.
Skoda hasn’t said much about theEnyaq, but it will be introduced later this year and become their first electric vehicle based on the MEB platform.
Specifications remain unconfirmed, but Volkswagen used the ‘digital’ Geneva Motor Show to announce the ID.4 will be offered with rear- and all-wheel drive. The company also confirmed one of the variants will have a range of range of up to 311 miles (500 km) according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure.
We can expect motors to be shared with the ID.3. As a result, there could be variants with outputs of 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS) and 201 hp (150 kW / 204 PS). The all-wheel drive model, on the other hand, is expected to use two electric motors that produce a combined output of approximately 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) .
