World premiere Skoda Enyaq Coupe: We have been waiting for this for a long time

Ever since we saw it as a concept car for the first time in 2019, interest in the Skoda Enyaq has been very high in Norway. For a long time, we only saw a yellow coupe version of the electric family car. Then eventually came the production version, but then in a classic SUV suit.

Some thought the sporty coupe lines would be available from the start. That did not happen, but after some delays, it is now finally clear: Enyaq Coupé is official!

At the same time as the big world premiere has been streamed all over the world, one of very few copies has just been unveiled in Norway.

This takes place in one of the country’s largest cinemas. Brooms’ Mats Brustad is also present.

Brooms Mats Brustad was present at the premiere in Nydalen – and got a closer look at the car immediately after it was unveiled.

Unveiled in Nydalen

We naturally take a phone call to hear what it is like to see the car thousands of Norwegians are waiting for.

Ring ring ….

– Hey, Knut! Now I know you’m excited. The car has just been unveiled here in Nydalen and we have seen it without camouflage, for the first time.

– Car launch in the cinema, it’s not exactly everyday?

– He he, no. The last time I was here, I actually saw the premiere of the new James Bond movie. Now Skoda and Enyaq are stealing the show. They have also lured with lots of popcorn, but I will enjoy that later. The premiere has taken place in cinemas around the world, at the same time. And the presentation video itself was really lavish. Visually, clearly the most elaborate car launch I have been to, says Mats.

Back to May 2020: Here we tested Enyaq for the first time – in Ireland

Not taken up much space

– What do you think about the design?

– I would say it has been just as delicious as we hoped. Sometimes it can be a long way between concept cars and product-ready models. Many cars become both duller and more toned down. But here I think Skoda has done well. Compared to the concept we saw in 2019, the taillights are a little different, otherwise they have held on to a lot of what attracted attention at the time.

– It is also interesting to see that they have managed it, without much cost and practical solutions. The coupe shape takes no more than 15 liters of luggage space, 570 liters against 585 in the SUV version. And the space in the back seat is impressively good, both for the legs and in height. The color choice helps you to notice this on the roads. The bright red color they show it in here really suits the car, says Mats.

Skoda has hit the mark with its new electric SUV. Read the test:

Skoda has gone for a sporty design on the Coupe edition of Enyaq, at the same time they have managed to preserve an impressive amount of space.

New top model

A slightly more aerodynamic body (Cw value of 0.234), contributes to increased range, up from 528 to 545 kilometers in the Coupe version.

The car will be available with four engine options. The range starts with iV 60. It has rear-wheel drive, and the engine produces 180 hp. The battery is 62 kWt (58 kWt net). iV 80 also has rear-wheel drive, and produces 204 hp from a battery of 82 kWt (77 kWt net). At the start of sales in April, there will also be confirmed information about which alternatives will be available in the Norwegian market.

In addition to the largest battery, the iV 80x and the top model RS iV get a second electric motor at the front, which provides four-wheel drive. iV 80x has a system power of 265 hp. The top model RS has 299 hp, and a maximum torque of 460 Nm.

The Enyaq Coupe RS iV uses 6.5 seconds from 0–100 km / h, and reaches a top speed of 180 km / h (20 km / h more than the other versions).

Tested Enyaq – now they have to do it again

The concept car attracted enormous attention when it was shown for the first time.  Now we have the final say - and can state that Skoda has been true to this in the latest development of the car.

Prices are not clear

Just like the SUV version, the new coupe gets an interior with various “Design Selections”, where natural and recycled materials are used. In addition, two completely new design options will be available with the RS version.

The selection includes ten theme packages and selected individual options, which will make the configuration of the car easier. A 13-inch centrally located infotainment screen and a 5.3-inch digital instrument panel are standard. Augmented reality head-up display is available as an option.

At the moment we do not know anything about the prices, they will be announced at the same time as the importer opens the sale in April.

This is a “sensible family car” – with 340 horsepower
