Skoda Enyaq Coupe’s high rear deck revealed in new spy photo

The Skoda Enyaq that is under consideration for launch in India will get a coupe sibling next year. In October we presented spy shots from forum member Michal Z who snapped the yet-to-be-named Skoda Enyaq Coupe testing on European roads. Now we have‘s Jan Červenka who has captured the car on Czech motorway. Think of it as the same relationship by the BMW X6 and the X5.

The Skoda Enyaq Coupe will be the closest road-going version of the Skoda Vision iV, the brand’s MEB show car from the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Compared to Enyaq it should have a wider and lower body, along with a roof dropping steeply to the rear and into the short D-pillars that give it the effect of a saloon. Changes in the proportions would give it a planted stance and a visibly more athletic character, but would come at the cost of rear headroom and boot space.

The exterior design could have differences with respect to the bumpers, grille, fenders and wheels, but the interior shouldn’t change. Enhanced aerodynamics would allow the coupe version to accelerate a tad faster and have a lower energy consumption in driving in theory. For reference, the regular version goes 0-100 km/h as quickly as in 6.2 seconds and has a drag coefficient of 0.27 Cd. The Skoda Enyaq Coupe should come with all or most of the Skoda Enyaq battery pack and motor options.

Theoretically, the coupe version should offer better performance and a higher range in the same configurations, as observed on the Audi e-tron Sportback vis-a-vis the regular Audi e-SUV. For reference, below are the Skoda Enyaq iV specifications:

EVW gathers that the Enyaq iV could have more than just one derivative. The range could be expanded in the coming years and it is likely that Skoda would go in the downward direction than create more premium vehicles.

The Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV could debut in early 2021, shortly after deliveries of the Skoda Enyaq iV in Europe begin. Due to the high importance of rear-seat comfort in India, the coupe version may not be deemed fit. If the regular version gets the green signal, the launch could happen in 2022 in a limited cities.
