Skoda Enyaq RS iV now also in SUV form

After releasing the Enyaq RS Coupé iV with a 220 kW (299 hp) dual-motor drivetrain, Skoda has given the non-Coupé version of its electric SUV the same sporty treatment. In addition, the RS model also gets visual changes to enhance its sporty appearance.

Up to now, the most powerful Skoda Enyaq iV was the 80x model, which features a 195 kW (265 hp) dual-motor drivetrain with an 82 kWh (77 kWh net) battery, which allows it to accelerate to 100 km/hour in 6,9 seconds, with a top speed of 160 km/hour.

This Enyaq RS iV gets the same battery, 220 kW (299 hp), 460 Nm, and makes the same standing sprint in 6,5 seconds. The top speed of the RS model is 180 km/hour. This drivetrain was first released on the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX.

Mamba green with black accents

Visually, the Enyaq RS iV differentiates itself from its more mundane brothers with its gloss black illuminated grille, with the same black accents returning on the window frames, mirror covers, and read diffuser.

The front of the car also gets an RS-specific bumper, with the whole body resting 10 to 15 mm lower thanks to the standard sports suspension. The Mamba Green body color is exclusive to the RS. The wheels measure 20 or 21 inches and get aero trims to improve range.

+500 km range

Speaking of range, the Skoda Enyaq RS iV has a WLTP combined range of “over 500 km”, which would put it just below the Enyaq 80x (524 km) and Enyaq 80 (548 km). The extra power and larger wheels take their toll.

The Enyaq Coupé RS iV reaches up to 523 km, according to the WLTP cycle, but the SUV model strikes back with a larger trunk: 585 to 1 710 liters beats 570 to 1 610 liters. Rear visibility is also better on the SUV model.

The interior gets black headlining, black microfiber on the dashboard, and seats with lime-colored stitching and piping, carbon-effect trim panels, and ambient lighting, with the default color being… green.

Cheaper than Coupé model?

No word on pricing or availability yet, but the price difference between a regular Enyaq and the Enyaq Coupé is about 3 000 euros. With the Enyaq Coupé RS’s price tag of 65 395 euros, we expect the Enyaq RS to cost around 62 000 euros.
