The new 2021 Skoda Enyaq iV is an EV SUV that rivals VW's ID.4, Ford's Mach-e and the forthcoming Audi Q4 E-Tron, Nissan Ariya and Hyundai Ioniq 5. 

With up to 333-miles range and interior space like few others, is the Enyaq better than its VW brother?

The Enyaq iV is a rebodied VW ID.4. It uses the same MEB platform and has two battery sizes to choose from: 62kWh (58kWh usable) called Enyaq 60 = WLTP 256 miles. 77kWh (82kWh usable) called the Enyaq 80 = WLTP 333 miles.

While every 62kWh battery version of the Enyaq iV starts from £31,500 so qualifies for the £2,500 government plug-in car grant, 82kWh battery pushes the Skoda beyond the grant’s threshold of £35k (£39k), resulting in a jump in price of around £7,000. Sportline from £43k. Just don’t be tempted by the latter.

True rivals for comparable size are: ID.4, Audi Q4 E-tron (as same platform), Ford Mach-e and forthcoming Hyundai Ioniq 5, Nissan Ariya and (in UK at least) Tesla Y.
