Škoda will launch a coupe variant of its Enyaq iV electric model later this year, the Czech Volkswagen brand has now announced, as well as calling for one of VW's six battery cell factories to be built in the Czech Republic.
But first, let's talk about the Enyaq iV Coupe: the manufacturer announced the model during its annual press conference, and in 2020 Škoda could deliver just over a million cars despite the Corona pandemic. Škoda didn't provide any more detailed information about the E-SUV coupe beyond the fact that the model is set to hit the market this year and will be simply called the Enyaq iV Coupe. Even an image hasn't been released yet.
"With the launch of the Enyaq iV as well as the new Fabia generation, the coupé variant of the Enyaq iV and the two refreshed SUV bestsellers Kodiaq and Karoq, we again have numerous new products in the pipeline this year," said Martin Jahn, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer, verbatim.
It is not confirmed by the company, but it is very likely that the coupe will be built together with the Enyaq iV at Škoda's headquarters in Mladá Boleslav. It is unclear whether the Czechs will offer the same variety of battery and powertrain options for the coupe as they do for the regular Enyaq, or whether the model will only be offered in the more powerful and range-extended variants - given the usual target group for SUV coupes.
