Skoda Enyaq: Brand's new EV crossover named

Skoda is preparing to reveal its first electric SUV this year, based on the same ‘MEB’ battery-friendly architecture as the ID.3 and ID.4 from parent company Volkswagen. Today, while not revealing the actual car itself, the company did tell us what it’ll be called: the Skoda Enyaq, a portmanteau of Irish name Enya (one example being the Celtic pop singer) and the letter Q with which the company’s other SUV end their names – think Kamiq, Karoq, and Kodiaq.

Hyundai has taken some of the edges off the concept's highly angular form, which can be seen at the bottom of this article.

Mazda Australia still undecided on MX-30 electric car

Mazda Australia has delayed a decision on whether to import the MX-30 electric car, but promises to make its plan public by the middle of this year. Australia's second-most popular car brand revealed its first EV at last October’s Tokyo Motor Show, a 4.4-metre long high-riding hatch with ‘freestyle’ rear-opening back doors, interior materials including recycled plastic and cork, and a 35.5kWh battery.
