Here it is, the new all-electric Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV revealed in full.
And the headline stat is that it gets a range in excess of 335 miles while being sleeker, sportier and lower-slung than its regular Enyaq iV SUV sibling.
Skoda has a bit of a history when it comes to building feisty coupes, dating back to the rally-bred Skoda110 R and 130 RS of the 1970s and 80s - the latter of those models being known as the ‘Porsche of the East’.
Here the tradition lives on, with the Czech firm describing the Enyaq Coupe iV as having ‘dynamic looks and sporty, elegant lines’.
It should also be extremely easy to live with.
With fast‑charging capacity of up to 135 kW as standard, it means that the 82 kWh battery can be charged from 10 to 80% in just 29 minutes with the standard ‘Mode 3’ cable. It can also be charged with 2.3 kW using a conventional 230-volt household socket and an optional Mode 2 cable.
There are two main powertains up for grabs - the Coupe iV 80 and and the more powerful Coupe iV vRS, news of which we brought you last month.
The rear-wheel drive 80 has power of 204 PS, max torque of 310 Nm, and a spirited 0-62 mph acceleration time of 8.8 seconds.
The all-wheel drive iV vRS, on the other hand, takes power up to 299 PS, torque hits 450 Nm, and it’ll accelerate to 62mph from a standstill in 6.5 seconds.
Meanwhile there’s also a distinct Enyaq Coupe iV 80 ‘SportLine’ model, which brings black sports styling to the interior, as well as a heated leather sports steering wheel, a leather-style dash trim, and aluminium covered pedals, among other things. The Sportline model, as well as the vRS, also sit 15 mm lower at the front and 10 mm lower at the rear compared with the standard ‘80’ version.
Across the range, the Enyaq Coupe iV features a sporty front apron and black panoramic roof as standard, the latter if which ‘provides passengers with plenty of headroom’, according to Skoda.
In the interior, there’s a big focus on sustainable material, particularly the ‘Lodge’ cabin, that has seat covers made of 40% natural new wool and 60% polyester from recycled PET bottles. Elsewhere waste sugar beet fibres have been recycled to become fillers for the plastic parts.
The Enyaq Coupe iV features a free-standing central display as standard. With a 13-inch screen, it is the largest display in Skoda’s current model range.
Meanwhile there’s also a full suite of driver and safety assistance tech up for grabs, which varies depending on which trim you select.
The ‘Lane Assist’ system has been tweaked compared with the old version, is now able to take over lateral steering in narrow spaces in the city and can identify yellow lane markings in roadworks as well as barriers and vehicles parked at the side of the road. It can also assist when negotiating corners in the city, even in narrow streets and unmarked lanes.
Meanwhile ‘Travel Assist’ can automatically change lanes on motorways and multi-lane roads at speeds above 55 mph and also includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian and Cyclist Protection comes as standard, while the optional optional Park Assist feature automatically manoeuvres the vehicle into and out of parallel and bay parking spaces - and will also automatically slam on the brakes for you should a pedestrian wander across your path.
