Could the Skoda Enyaq be the most convincing EV yet?

Best bits

  • Very comfortable and versatile electric SUV
  • Affordable enough to bring electric cars to the masses
  • Easy to drive

Not so great

  • Volkswagen ID.4 is perhaps more visually appealing
  • Not available with seven seats
  • It'll be a while before nearly-new examples hit the market

Overall verdict on the Skoda Enyaq iV

"The Enyaq iV is Skoda at its best. It's versatile enough to be your main family car, with a big boot and generous range, while it won't cost a great deal to buy."

Skoda Enyaq iV Review 2021: front dynamic

As you'll see from this Skoda Enyaq review, the Czech brand could have a bit of a winner on its hands. That's because we reckon that the new Skoda Enyaq iV is an electric vehicle that requires very little in the way of compromise. While city urban runarounds like the Honda e and Fiat 500 Electric are great as personal transport, they aren't ideal for taking the family away at the weekends. Then there's electric SUVs like the Tesla Model X and Mercedes EQC. Great for the family but you'll have to be fairly committed to making the switch to EV when their price tags are in excess of £65,000.


Having previously dabbled with the Skoda Citigo-e iV, the Skoda Enyaq iV is the brand's very first dedicated electric car and Skoda has got the balance pretty much spot on. We think it's gone and made one of the best electric cars going with the Skoda Enyaq iV. 


The 2021 Skoda Enyaq iV is based on the same platform as the Volkswagen ID.4 and Audi Q4 e-tron - yet, in true Skoda form, it offers more for less, with greater practicality, generous kit levels and a more affordable price tag.


There are two battery sizes available with the Skoda Enyaq – the smaller one (badged the Skoda Enyaq iV 60) is priced from around £32,000 and has a range of up to 256 miles between charges. The bigger one (badged the Skoda Enyaq iV 80) will cost you a little more than £39,000 and has an official range of up to 333 miles. Charging takes around an hour using a 50kW charger, while the Skoda Enyaq iV is available with an optional 125kW rapid charging capability – adding 80% of range in 38 minutes.


At almost 4.7m long and just under 1.9m wide, the Skoda Enyaq is similar in size to the popular Skoda Kodiaq but, unlike the Kodiaq, it's not available with seven seats. That doesn't detract from its overall usability, though – it's cavernous inside, with loads of space for front and rear passengers alike. The Skoda Enyaq's boot space is big, too, at 585 litres with the seats in place. Towing isn't something that can be taken for granted with an electric car, so it's impressive to see the Enyaq able to tow up to 1000kg. 


While it might have a Skoda badge on the front, the Skoda Enyaq feels every bit as posh as the Volkswagen ID.4. It helps that all models come with the same 13-inch navigation system, while there are a variety of distinctive interior trims to choose from. It's loaded with what Skoda calls 'Simply Clever' features – things like a handy umbrella storage compartment in the driver's door.


The Skoda Enyaq's not exciting to drive and it won't surge forwards like a higher-powered Ford Mustang Mach-E, but rushing towards the horizon soon gets tiring. It is comfortable, though, while there's a long list of driver-assist technology on hand to keep you and your family safe. And if you want something a bit more fun, there is a twin-motor Enyaq vRS model on its way.


Overall, we think the Skoda Enyaq iV represents remarkable value for money – especially when you can pick one up for the price of a high-spec Renault Zoe. It's more comfortable than a Ford Mustang Mach-E, more affordable than a Polestar 2 and just as premium as a Volkswagen ID.4. Only time will tell how it compares with the upcoming Nissan Ariya, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, though.

What's the best Skoda Enyaq iV model/engine to choose?

While the Skoda Enyaq iV 80 impresses with its 333-mile range, we actually reckon the Enyaq iV 60 is the one to go for. The entry-level model is well-equipped, not missing out on any 'must-have' features, and its 256-mile range is pretty good. The difference in performance between the Enyaq iV 60 and the Enyaq iV 80 is barely noticeable, and a quirk of the plug-in car grant means you'll save quite a hefty amount of money by buying the lower-powered model.

What other cars are similar to the Skoda Enyaq iV?

The affordable electric SUV market is a rapidly expanding one. You should also consider the (mechanically very similar) Volkswagen ID.4 and the slightly posher Audi Q4 e-tron. 

Other upcoming rivals include the Nissan Ariya, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, while the Ford mustang Mach-E is a slightly sportier alternative. If you don't need quite so much space, also take a look at the Tesla Model 3 (or the pricey Model X) and Polestar 2.

Is the Skoda Enyaq iV a seven-seater?

Unlike the bigger Skoda Kodiaq, the Skoda Enyaq iV can only carry five adults. There's loads of space, though, even for rear-seat passengers. It has a massive boot, too, capable of lugging up to 585 litres of luggage.

What does Enyaq mean?

The name of the new Skoda Enyaq comes from the Irish name ‘enya’, meaning ‘source of life’. Enya itself comes from the Irish Gaelic word ‘Eithne’, meaning ‘essence’, ‘spirit’ or ‘principle’. The added 'Q' on the end means its part of Skoda's SUV line-up, alongside the Kamiq, Karoq and Kodiaq.
