The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV vRS joins the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS and offers two motors delivering all-wheel drive with a total system output of 299 PS and torque of 460 Nm. The two vRS versions of the ENYAQ iV are the most powerful vehicles in ŠKODA’s model line-up.

With a top speed of 111 mph the ENYAQ iV vRS is 12 mph faster than the other ENYAQ iV models, as is the coupé variant. Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph takes just 6.5 seconds.

However there’s still an impressive electric range of over 310 miles, thanks to its 82 kWh battery and no doubt helped by a drag coefficient of cw 0.265.

The ENYAQ iV vRS has large 20 or 21-inch wheels, and standard sports suspension lowers the body by 15 millimetres at the front axle and 10 millimetres at the rear axle.

Adaptive Chassis Control (DCC) is available as an option, which constantly monitors the situation on the road and automatically adjusts the damping. Drive Mode Select offers the profiles of Eco, Comfort, Normal and Sport, and the additional driving profile Traction, which is ideal for driving on unpaved roads or slippery surfaces, offering constant all-wheel drive at speeds of up to 12 mph.

The ENYAQ iV vRS comes with a ‘Crystal Face’: 131 LEDs illuminate the grille.

At 585 litres, the boot capacity is 15 litres larger than the ENYAQ COUPÉ iV vRS and can be expanded to up to 1,710 litres by folding down the rear seats.

The ENYAQ iV vRS has a maximum charging power of 135 kW, allowing it be charged from 10% to 80% in just 36 minutes at a rapid charger.

A ŠKODA iV ecosystem includes wallboxes for convenient at-home charging and the POWERPASS, a charging card that can be used throughout Europe.

The new ‘Plug & Charge’ function makes it possible to start the charging process at suitable charging points stored in the POWERPASS app simply by connecting the charging cable; the vehicle is identified at the charging point and the charging session is billed automatically.

The 100,000th car from the ENYAQ iV family is shortly due to roll off the production line.
