Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV vRS had its world premiere earlier last month. Being the first all-electric model to wear Skoda’s famous vRS badge, it comes at a starting price of £51,885 (Around Rs 53 Lakhs). The pre-bookings for the Enyaq Coupé iV vRS will begin from February 17, 2022 in the UK while the deliveries are expected by the end of July. It is highly unlikely that Skoda will bring this all-electric coupe to the Indian market anytime soon as it is currently focusing on heavily localized premium products for India.
The styling highlights include sports front and rear bumpers and gloss black surrounds for the grille, window trim and rear diffuser. The black finish has been extended to tailgate lettering and the air curtain trim on the front apron. The rear bumper sports a full-length red reflector – a design feature shared with all other Skoda vRS models. Like all Enyaq Coupé iV models, the vRS is fitted with a full-length panoramic glass roof as standard. The all-electric coupe rides on black 20-inch Taurus wheels as standard with 21-inch Vision wheels with an anthracite finish will be available as an option. Full LED matrix headlights and Crystal Face (illuminated by 131 LEDs) complete the vRS model’s exterior design package.
The cabin gets a model-specific Design Selection exclusively reserved for the sporting flagship of the range. In addition to black perforated leather sports seats (heated) with integrated headrests, grey piping and contrast stitching, Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV vRS features a leather multifunction sports steering wheel complete with vRS badge. The dashboard is upholstered in a leather-look material to match the seats, and is edged with contrast stitching. The standard equipment includes carbon effect inserts on the dashboard and door trim and aluminium pedals, plus LED ambient lighting and an electrically operated boot with virtual pedal. It is equipped as standard with a sports chassis that is 15mm lower at the front and 10mm at the rear. Dynamic steering is also standard on vRS models.
The all-electric high-performance coupe is powered by an 82kWh (77kWh net) battery pack which returns a driving range of 490 kilometres. The battery pack transfers power to the two motors which are mounted on front and rear axles. The combined power output and torque performance stands at 295 bhp and 460 Nm, respectively. The coupe does a 0-100kmph sprint in merely 6.5 seconds while clocking a top speed of 180kmph. The Enyaq coupé iV vRS can be rapidly DC charged at speeds of up to 135kW via a CCS connector. This means an 80 percent charge can be achieved in as little as 36 minutes when connected to a 150kW charger or faster. On a standard 7.2kW home wallbox, a charge from empty to full will take around 13 hours.
