The fully-electric 2021 Skoda Enyaq iV has been teased this week, ahead of its official unveiling in September 2020.

Based on the Volkswagen Group's electric MEB platform, the Enyaq will be the brand's first production car to be based on the architecture.

The Enyaq iV is the road-going version of the Vision iV concept car, first shown in March 2019.

It's understood the electric SUV will be offered in five power levels from three battery packs: the Enyaq 50, Enyaq 60, Enyaq 80, Enyaq 80X, and Enyaq RS.

The Enyaq 50 uses a 55kWh battery pack with around 109kW, and a range of 340 kilometres. The 60 gets a 62kWh battery with 131kW and a 390km range, while the Enyaq 80 gets an 82kWh battery producing 150kW and offering a 500km range. All are rear-wheel driven.

For those needing all-wheel-drive, the Enyaq 80X has a second electric motor driving the front axle, with 195kW and a range of 460km.

A sportier Enyaq RS version will feature too, with 225kW coming from the 82kWh battery pack and providing the same 460km range. The 0-100km/h sprint will likely be done in a touch over 6 seconds.

While the Skoda Enyaq iV has yet to be confirmed locally, a spokesperson for Skoda Australia told CarAdvice in May 2020 of the brand's interest in the model.

However, as Australia's emissions regulations lag significantly behind those in Europe, it's likely the next generation of electric vehicles will not be prioritised for Australia to begin with.
