In July next year, Škoda Australia will introduce the Enyaq RS, an EV that boasts 547km of driving range and a 0-100km/h time of just 5.5 seconds. It’s the most powerful vehicle to ever be offered by the car maker.
The slightly calmer Enyaq 85 has 210kW of power, with up to 576km of driving range, and a sprint to 100km/h time of 6.7 seconds. The duo offer alternative to standard medium SUVs, thanks to its coupe-like body style.
“Both the 210kW and 250kW Enyaq are the most powerful Skoda models we have ever offered, while delivering among the longest electric vehicle driving range in the electric medium SUV segment,” Škoda Australia head of marketing and product Kieran Merrigan said.
“Škoda customers are also among the most discerning and progressive in the market, and the Australian love affair with RS badged product continues,” he added.
“Together this tells us that our performance and technology flagship, as an appealing SUV, will be warmly welcomed into the market from mid next year.”
The upgraded Skoda Enyaq’s more advanced electric motors, batteries and thermal management – such as the ability to pre-heat the battery – deliver an increased charging speed and better overall driving experience.
Charging for both the Enyaq 85 and Enyaq RS offer a peak capacity of up to 175kW, reducing the recharge time to get from 10 to 80 per cent to 28 minutes. Continuing the innovation theme, the new model also features a redesigned user interface.
That change will bring a more intuitive design aimed at making it easier to control the car’s functions. The virtual instrument panel and head-up display also receive new graphics, and the voice assistant is improved.
Final Australian specifications, including local pricing, will be announced closer to its launch in 2024. For further information, contact your local Škoda dealer.
